Starts


At long last, spring has arrived here. After all, it's only late April! I was able to take a spin on my favorite vehicle this weekend:

I have to say that it was a bit rough and I need to build up some strength -- but it felt good to be out riding in the sunshine.

I've gotten a good start on the second pattern in the Secret Sock Society run by Helen Stewart. Magnolia is a beautiful pattern:
Once again, I'm using a yarn from Great Lakes Tweed and I love it. However, it's a little busy for such a detailed pattern:
Even so, it's very pretty and I'm going to keep going on this pair. I can always knit a second pair in a different yarn!

I hope you have a wonderful week. Mine is starting out with jury duty!

  2. I love your bike. I wish I had gone with that style instead of the hybrid I have. Hope you have a lot more good riding days!!!

    I think your sock will be great in that color when it is on your leg and stretched out a bit.

  5. Love the yarn and the stitch pattern. Hmm, I need to try riding my bike again. I hope my new new knee works better than the old one.

  6. I hope you can knit on that lovely sock during jury duty; the last time I was scheduled, they confiscated my needles and told me they were dangerous weapons that a prisoner could grab!

  7. I hope you can knit during duty too. You would be a fair and wonderful juror.
    I am so happy you got out on your bike. Fireman got out SUnday with a friend and it made him very happy!

  8. Hurrah for spring! It landed here, too, finally. Take a good book with you for the waiting that goes with jury duty; knitting needles aren't allowed here anyhow. Enjoy the sunshine!

  10. yay for bike riding season! My husband loves to ride bikes and luckily he has a friend who likes to ride as well so I do not have to ride :) :) I prefer the gym.

  11. So glad you were able to go out riding in the sunshine, dear Deborah! May you be stronger day by day as He heals you. [already packed my Jewish Study Bible so can't check to see if Psalm 102:3 NKJV is the same in it, but I read this Psalm this morning and thought of the promise of this verse for you just now] I feel so privileged to know you through your blog and continue to be inspired by your artistry! Thanks for all your lovely posts. xx
