A Beautiful Day

It's lovely in southern Ontario at this time of year. Everything is so green and fresh and it's not too hot yet. Lovely weather to sit outside and knit. Doesn't this look inviting?

What you see here is the bridal wreath bush in bloom, a nice cup of tea, a cute ceramic sheep that was a gift from my mom, Cast On and Sticks and String on the i-Pod, two cushions on the chair, and yes! my Kauni is back in progress.

I procrastinated on returning to it all week, knitting some very boring socks instead. I'm glad I waited because when I picked it up again, I decided I like it. The hiatus did me some good. I believe I've been over thinking this thing. Today, I decided to just knit it. And a very enjoyable knit it was too.

Here's what was going on just behind my back at the other half of the yard:

Jim is re-laying the patio stones so they'll be level and to take out all the dirt that was supporting a good crop of weeds. Dexter is gnawing a fresh marrow bone we picked up for him as part of our Saturday errands. Luke is reading in the chair and Alex is lazing in the hammock.

What a great Saturday!
