Arlo continues to grow. It is sad to be knitting something for your youngest child and realize you are knitting a size that is too big for you personally. Where does the time go?
Speaking of time, today is my 27th wedding anniversary. I still really like this guy.
In addition to being fun to hang out with, he has been kind enough to leave unacknowledged the fact that I am putting him to a lot of trouble and expense to build a little tree house room I can knit in, with a nearby grill and fridge so I can eat without walking the 20 extra feet into the house. [He's probably going to fuss a bit when he realizes I'm planning some moth-proof cedar storage out here to go along with those beautiful cedar beams.]
Because I warned you up front that this was a rambling kind of post, I'm sharing this bad selfie. I was so happy to be in a part of the country this week where it was cold enough to wear the Antarktis I knit earlier this year. I adore Janina Kallio's well-written patterns and plan to knit a few more this fall.
It's really fun to come home from a business trip and, in addition to my adoring family who missed me so much that they cleaned the house and cooked me a fabulous meal, come home to a box of Plucky Yarn. Of course, the whole family/clean house part is a fantasy, but I did come home to some pretty yarn this week.
It is Plucky Bello Worsted. I love these skeins together and need to come up with a shawl or scarf pattern they can all play in. Bello Worsted knits up closer to a DK weight for me. If anyone has pattern suggestions, I would love it if you would email me or leave them in the comments. This yarn is to die for!

Giggle. You just never know who is going to stop in to say hey! Happy Saturday, Girlie.
Hey back at you Jody! It’s nice to see one of my favorite knitters on a Saturday afternoon.
Thanks Katinka. I love Carina’s patterns.
