Sunday Morning Rambling

Yes, I did start another diva scarf...I couldn't help it. I love the pattern and it is so much fun to work on. This time in bold graphic black & white with some reds and grays mixed in. I think it will be a beauty when I get it done.

I am making it wider so it can be worn as a wrap as well as a scarf. I'll keep you all posted on my progress as I knit this up. Why is it we do not have time for all we like to do!? I have crochet projects on my list that I want to get to...and I am so hooked on this knit scarf I can't seem to get enough of it!

I love Sunday mornings. I always get up early to take care of Phoebe, then I settle down with some tea and whatever I am working on. If I am really lucky I can score a good black & white movie on TCM...this morning was just one of those. A great movie with Gary Cooper in it! Sucked me right in.

My weekend has been packed with activity. Yesterday I planted some ornamental gourd seeds! I cannot wait to see them sprout up. My dad came over and tilled up a small flower bed for me to do this. I also got a elephant ear bulb in the ground. Next week I will add some flowers. I am just too low on time to get that done and the back yard has to be mowed today. The weather is perfect and I am going to take the opportunity to get a little sun as I mow!

I will leave you with a picture of the back deck. I have to daily clean the coating of pollen off everything, but that's okay!
Sunday Morning Back Porch
Yes, I have it decked out with some granny square action, too!!! And my shirret rug, which took me hours and hours of work! But it feels so good under my feet. I have a friend who will not step on it, she says it's too pretty to walk on!

Sunday Morning Back Porch
It's like being in a tree house!

Back Update: I am doing so much better! I had my epidural steroid shot on Monday...slept most of the day away...but I felt the immediate effect! I am back to my active self with very little hip/back pain! Yay!!! I just hope it lasts awhile!

the scarf is lovely, but I must say that I love the picture of you deck, it seems so inviting.
Absolutely love that rug, that is actually on my to-do list, I want to make it with t-shirt yarn... just need to find time for it...

I want to make a rug from t-shirts too! I just found your blog(can't recall where I was when I surfed though) and LOVE it!! After my grandmother died, I inherited her hooks and pattern books(mostly afghans and doilies) and was determined to learn how to crochet. It took a while, I'm left handed and an auditory learner, but I finally got it. Now I can't stop! I'm not so good at knitting but I'd really like to be.

Your blog is just cute, and so is that pupperdog!
