Wednesdays

perfectly pink drops

Back on the pink!
I just can't bring myself to start a new project until I have done this pink jersey!
It is finally starting to get somewhere. By this evening I should have split the jersey for the sleeves and be busy on the front and back of the jersey simultaneously.
Hopefully by next week I will be on the sleeves!

Reading wise: I have finished "The Genesis Secret" (Book Review to follow on Saturday) and have started one of our new Book-Club selections "The Housemaid's Daughter"

So far I am loving this book - it does make me feel rather homesick though as it describes the scenery and places of the South Africa I know, and the country I grew up in. The sounds, sights and smells are amazingly vivid for me, I wonder if those of you who have read this book, and are not south african, experience it in a similar way? I imagine the book will get a bit intense as it goes along, but I look forward to continuing the story.

I have finished the shorts I planned to sew last week, although I sewed them in a different material than originally planned, and I ended up making some pj pants for Kay also. I will show them on Friday, although I think I will stick more to the knitting from now on :)

Tomorrow on Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party, I will be showing you how to create a quick and simple spring invitation out of serviettes so do come by and link up your creativeness for the week.

Well, go to run, I am off to my beekeeper friend this morning to help out before it rains :)

BTW - if you recall I went to collect some herbs last week in the woods, you can read about the herb info and get some recipes HERE

See you tomorrow.

P.S: I am making some more of that amazing Pizza from last week for lunch - yummy have you tried it yet?

Am sharing this over at Tamis and Ginny today.

  1. So good for you to finish a project before starting another one. I have a habit of constantly casting on and never finishing projects...well they do eventually get done...just not in a timely fashion. Hence starting christmas knitting in July :-) I haven't heard of this book, but it looks good! I will have to request it from the library.

    1. Hi Heather,
      I would also love to start another project to be quite honest, but the Drops Verdi comes in one massive ball of 350g, so not the easiest yarn to put away for a while - and I do feel bad that it is taking me this long to get somewhere!
      Thanks so much for visiting.

  2. I'd love to have a wooly bright sweater. I want to start one myself! It is still cold and I am fed up with my brown sweater. Have a nice week. Regula

    1. Hi Regula,
      When will the summer be here? I guess it is nice to still have knitting weather? :(

  4. Love the pink. Thanks for the tip on the book - DH is from Durban SA, and we've visited various parts of the country several times. I'm going to tell Siri to remind me to look for it on my eBook reader! How geeky is that?

      Port Shepstone was always a family favourite as a destination, fond memories of sea and sand :)

  5. I can't wear pink, but if I could, I would get some of that wool. I *love* that color. The Housemaid's Daughter looks interesting--I'm going to check my library for it. Happy Wednesday!
