coffee time

Some progress on this sock has been made since it last aired.
Leg - done.
Heel flap - done.

Not too bad considering I have four other socks on the needles and am working on a test knit project that needs to be finished by the end of the week.

No worries. I've got it covered - it's called intravenous coffee.

I'm afraid there hasn't been significant progress since you last saw these socks...
I've been secret knitting...

In other news, we're building raised beds for the garden...
Hopefully veggies and a photoflower garden will be in our future!!
Fingers are crossed...at least until I pick up the needles again :)

tea time

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you; 
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited it will calm you. 
~William Ewart Gladstone

Something new and pink to send us off into the weekend.

Lunch with a friend, basketball and knitting,
and lots of tea will fill my weekend.

What about you? What's on your agenda?

Wishing you a cheery weekend! xo

some days
get a little derailed and need 
a little extra help to get back on track.

...the beginning of a new sock...
...a latte and macarons...

how do you get back on track?

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
I started the Heathcliff-half of the Catherine and Heathcliff

Just like there is only one Mr. Darcy, there is only one Heathcliff.
Love. Him them.

In other news...Mr. NK and I spent most of the weekend photographing
at and around Waterfront Park.
We were testing a rental camera and taking pictures of
everything and everyone that moved in front of us!

Although lunch didn't move...we took pictures of it, too! :) 

And you? Any fun happenings for you this past weekend?
Do share! 

For variety of mere nothings 
gives more pleasure 
than uniformity of something.

I haven't made much progress on my Regan sock...just finishing the heel since
its last post.

But I did take advantage of some sunshine this week
to take it out for some glamour shots!
I love the 'opposites attract' yarn from BDY...the complementary skeins are
lovely and the second sock really isn't a "second" sock if it's a different color - i.e. no SSS!

Are you doing anything fun for the weekend?!
My mother in law is visiting and I think we're going to hang out
at the waterfront...hopefully the weather will behave!

Whatever you do, I hope you have fun!

A faithful friend is a strong defense; 
And he that hath found him hath found a treasure.
