Upright and Moving Again!

 There wasn't too much knitting going on the last few days
 but I felt better this morning
so I finished binding off the bottom of the matching boy's cardigan.
On to the sleeves-I will knit these as the yarn comes off the skein
 and not sweat the matching thing this time!
 I am still enjoying this view from my bedroom window each morning!
 Another beauty to savor (this is as close as we get to lilacs!)
 each day is the blooming season of the sweet Viburnum !  
We have two trees of these-the whole side yard is delicious smelling!
And the sweet smelling jasmine is wafting its sweet aroma
in the front yard!
Pretend this is a scratch and sniff and you will be smiling!
And right near the jasmine we set the new foundation
for the birdbath when I finish tiling it!
Bill had to help me with this job since each of the pavers weighs 50lbs!
The wrought iron is a yard sale find he saved.
Most of the time he buys it because it is a deal and he has no idea what he will be doing with it.
Occasionally, I see just what I could do with it and so he shares!
A good arrangement!


  1. Yay for feeling better! Love the colors in the sweater. Can't wait to see the next bird bath.

  2. Glad to hear you're feeling better and back to knitting. Repurposing items is fun and good for the environment. Your bird bath is going to be great.

  3. Glad you're improving.

    It's nice to be able to share your creative vision!

  4. I love the scent of confederate jasmine!!! I'm glad to read that you are feeling better.

  5. Daughter has it now and is so sick. She had to take her first sick day in 4 years. Glad to hear you are on the mend and back to your projects.

  6. That is a beautiful plinth all ready to hold its own artwork! You are adding some really neat pieces to your yard lately. Wish I could smell your viburnum or jasmine — yum!

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
