Finally I have a full quiet day. For longer than a week, I’ve been taking care of sick people. Everyone in my house was sick! And yesterday was a snow day. Finally today I can breathe! I have a lot of housework to catch up on, but I decided that would wait. I have been feeling so exhausted and run down for the past few weeks that I decided I needed a day to rest.
I have been wanting to knit this little scarf for a long time and I finally decided I had a large enough block of time, plus a quiet house. So I pulled out some lightweight white wool and cast on. Lily of the valley is not only the flower for the month of May (my birthday month) but it is a flower I love not just for the looks but for the wonderful scent! Plus I found I was able to conquer very easily a stitch that had struck fear into my heart – the nupp for any of you who have tried to knit lace or who have contemplated it. I will be expanding on this at Finngarian Knits.
What are you doing to nourish your soul today?
