My best friend and some upcoming socks in the prettiest spring colors I can think of.

Last month I realized two things:
1. This year is my ten year knitting anniversary. 2. This marks year four that I've been working on my Bee Keeper's Quilt. So, the goal then, is to celebrate my ten year knitting anniversary by finishing my Bee Keeper's Quilt! I'll be honest, I'm not sure if I'll make it. I've made something close to 400 hexipuffs but I still need a couple hundred more. But I'd like to really try and I think it would be a great way to mark the occasion. So, to that end, we have some early morning hexipuff knitting going on. πŸ˜‰ Hope you're having a lovely morning.

Because I don't think you're ever too old for Harry. ⚑️

The lovely @homesteadbeginnings asked #widn . Inside, I'm doing a happy dance because it's the first day above freezing in about a week. πŸŽ‰ To anybody on the outside though, I'm doing laundry and trying to finish this front panel on my Effervescence Cardigan so that I can move onto some sleeves! It's been nearly a year since I started this cardigan and it's time to get it in the rotation. πŸ’ͺ#widn @kellythecarelesscat , @armelle_ , and @thishandmadelife (only if you want to share, of course! πŸ’•).

Sunday socks. I'm refusing to let myself cast on anything else until this pair is finally done! 😝

High Rising socks are finally off the needles! Although, I rather think this yarn might match the cover of Pomfret Towers better. πŸ€” What do you think?

I don't want to jinx it, but I think I might finally have my knitting mojo back! Several old projects have been coming out of the work basket lately and I have a few more the share with you this next week.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and staying warm. We're back with temperatures in the teens today so I'm planning on cozying up with the last few chapters of Not Just Jane (see previous post) and a large pot of tea this afternoon. β˜•οΈπŸ“š

"These are the women whose stories I read, researched, and fell in love with, but as I studied their lives, I found myself in a constant state of befuddlement: how could a best-selling millionaire, or the inventor of a genre, or a war journalist in a petticoat, ever have been forgotten?" -Shelley DeWees

I haven't been able to put this book down since starting it last night. Such an interesting look at the life of women in general and these seven in particular. Loving it.

Sorry for the radio silence lately. One of my puppies has been fighting a severe allergic reaction and the husband has had the flu so things have been a bit crazy. πŸ˜‰

Spending the morning with Anne because she makes rainy days seem so full of promise. Waffles help, too! 😜

Favorite things: quiet mornings, good book, large mug of coffee.

Homemade waffles with bananas and kiwis and a pretty cup of coffee- because a quiet gray morning can always use a cheerful breakfast plate.

I have a lot of other things I should be doing today, but I think I'm going to stay here just a little bit longer.

Today is for finishing the final chapters of The Sittaford Mystery for last month's #maidensofmurder (this month's book should be in the mail today!) and for starting my second High Rising sock! Thanks to the very kind @armelle_ for tagging me to #flipthatbook . Being OCD, I felt quite the rebel turning that book upside down! πŸ˜… Happy Friday everyone!
