In light of all the front door views and back yard views around the blogs over the past few weeks (which I’ve both participated in and enjoyed immensely), I laughed when I saw that Katie had posted, surely through some kind of osmosis, a picture with the caption, "The view from our lodge, Ireland." Not difficult to see why she’d even think to take a picture — it’s so peaceful! Do you see the specks on the grass across the water? It’s surely more sheepies!
This one makes me smile, too. "Aran Islands in the distance through the snow from the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland." I’m not sure whether I’m seeing islands or what, but I love it. ; ) She called last night with a question about yarn — she is on the hunt for something special and memorable for both of us!
I’ve finished the pink stealth knitting and have started another blue blanket square for Christine’s "Comforting Jef" project (which may, with any luck, also extend to "Comforting Mike"!). There’s a good week and a few days of knitting left before I’ll have to get these in the mail so she has them by the deadline on the 24th. I knit a whole square listening to podcasts the other day, but I was so tired last night I had to hit the hay early. I’m using some navy blue Debbie Bliss Merino Aran that I actually used to knit a sweater once, but it was too small so I frogged the entire thing. It’s great yarn. Each square has a simple cable design because, well, I like that cable action!
Still prayin’. ; )
