A Little Knitting

With the onset of warmer weather, the outdoors calls. There is also an upcoming provincial elections, and since I was hired to work at it, I have been training and reading the procedures for voting day. My sewing room has been lonely.

I did finish another preaching stole, for Pentecost, but, since I ironed it on the way out the door, I didn't get a picture.

I entered a postcard in the postcard category at Quilts Canada, in Vancouver, and in my rush to get it into the mail on time, I didn't get a picture of that, either.  You are just going to have to take my word for it.

So, all I have to show you is knitting in progress.

A lace sock in a wild striped yarn, because I can! I did take it to a meeting and messed up the cable stitch, however, it is not going to be fixed. Done is better than perfect!

This is a shawl I started, last fall, that I would like to wear this spring, so I have been working away at it. I have turned the point, so the rows are getting shorter, again. I love this ombre yarn, I might have to buy another ball.

After a long winter, nothing is cheerier than flowers.

The crab apple tree is covered in flowers, and the bees are loving it. There is a bumble bee in the picture, enjoying the sweet apple nectar.

We garden in pots since our yard is very shaded. So, the pots are being filled.

Pink and Purple, my favourite.


  1. Both those striped years are gorgeous! Nothing like a few cheerful flowers to make you feel like spring, is there?

  2. Petunias and Begonias ? Beautiful shades together. Love the socks too.,

  3. What pretty pretty yarn!!! I've been working on a shawl for what seems like ages. I'm finally up to the border, but it's a cabled border so I'm not sure if I'm nervous about it yet.

  4. Wow! So much going on in your world! Your socks are very pretty. No one will notice a cable mistake, I'm sure. Pretty flowers!

  5. You have been a very busy bee, it must be the warmer weather and all the beautiful flowers. Love the variety of projects you have on the go.
