We had big plans for moving more stuff over to the house today. I even woke up at 7 feeling pretty good about the day. Sunday’s are one of the only days our kids get to really play video games or use my tablet to play games. This morning was like any other Sunday morning, lots of quiet screen time interspersed with the occasional scream of frustration. I got to drink my coffee, while it was still hot. I read a little of my new Sherlock Holmes spin-off series. I even knit several rows of my purple sweater.
I love the cables in this book! I was a bit intimidated at first, but once I read through some explanations and gave some of them a shot, I fell in love. I usually try to design a lot of cables into a piece, but never get up to doing it all. After looking through the beautiful pieces in this book, I decided the purl side of stockinette stitch does look really good with these cables. This also gives me some uninterrupted knitting streaks where I can relax from all the focused work of the cables, but the intricate cable work to keep it interesting and break up the stretches of mindless knitting.
Later in the day, the girls played outside, enjoying the beautiful weather. The hubby and I got to do a few things out and about with each other. The evening saw more Minecraft and we all pitched in on dinner. It was a late bedtime, but everyone went straight to sleep, so all in all it was a good day. We’ll see what kind of morning we get.
