I Got Married! & Knitting Scarf

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. It sure has been some time since I blogged and the reason is that I was in the process of finally getting married! I got married after four postponements on September 26th. I am so happy we finally tied the knot and are married. It was such a lovely day and I will probably do a post later on once we have more photos. Here is a teaser photo my photographer has provided below.

I casted on for a scarf just to ease back into knitting and work on something fun! I am knitting this pattern Blustery day in Berkley  by Bridget Dean on Ravelry. It is a simple one row repeat and nice to knit up while I watch a show. I am using yarn I found and loved at Michael's. It is super bulky Loops & Threads Eco-Luxe in the colorway blush blend. I will also be working on a secret project going on the needles soon as a Christmas gift.  I was taking photos of the scarf below and my kitten Millie was investigating what I was doing. I snapped a few pictures with her in it. She is growing a lot now and is 5 months old! She is so sweet we love her so much.



I am still working on reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I like it so far and think it is a good idea to create goals like that to focus on different aspects of your life each month. 

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday. Join along for her weekly link up party to see what others are knitting.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I will be back posting to my regular weekly posts now. I got off track due to so much going on with the wedding planning and focusing on those things. I hadn't been knitting since I finished the bunny toy and I have missed it. Happy to be back! Take care and be safe :)

Have a great day!

Finished Knitting the Simple Bunnies Toy

 Hello Friends,

                                 

I hope you are doing well. I haven't been posting here much lately, but I keep thinking about posting and sharing my knitting and reading progress and what has been going on in life lately. I have been busy with work, Millie, and planning my wedding going on the 5th time. It is really crazy how long it has been dragging out and we now have a date for September 26th. The way it is looking is we will have a ceremony with family and close friends and then go to a restaurant. We aren't able to have the big reception party afterwards as planned due to Covid-19. So that is where we are at now with the wedding and nothing is ever final and from previous times we know it is last minute that things can change. But Liam and I are just ready to get married now so it will probably happen as planned this month in September. 

I finished knitting the Simple Bunnies toy for my nephew. It was a fun knit and I hope that he enjoys holding it and looking at it. He is now 4 months and is growing so fast. I was looking after him lately and he is smiling a lot and making a lot of sounds.




Pattern: Simple Bunnies by Julia VR

Needles: US 6, 4 mm circular needles

Yarn: Snuggly Wuggly by Loops & Threads in soft gray

Millie is doing well and adjusting well to our home and being with us. She is playful and sweet. We are so happy to have her here. She follows us from room to room and enjoys spending time with Liam and I. She is attached to us both and loves a lot of attention. It has been really nice to be working from home and just being home more in general to spend more time with her as she gets used to our home.

I am reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, as you can see my reading has been very slow lately. I will work on finishing this book, then plan to move on to another one I own soon. For the remainder of the year, I will make more of a point to read more.

Thank you for stopping by! I have my next project in mind now and looking forward to starting soon. Lately I feel like knitting has been slow and on hold and I really want to get back on track with it. Also blogging here with you all is so fun and I miss it too. Things are still crazy here with the Delta variant and no end in sight for Covid-19. It is another one of those unpredictable times when we are in one of the waves. We are in the fourth wave now and hope it is a short one. Stay safe!

Have a great day!

Knitting Simple Bunnies Baby Toy and Reading On


Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been so nice having our kitten Millie with us, and it has been so busy in a good way. I love chasing her around and having her snuggle in my lap while I work or go on the computer. She also likes to nap beside Liam as he works as well. I haven't been doing as much of the things I usually do like knitting, reading, and planning since we got her since my priorities shifted to taking care of her mostly. I feel like now that she has been with us for a month, I am starting to incorporate back some of the things I did before but it is slow. I knitted more of the bunny toy and as you can see below, she was very interested in the yarn. I didn't knit for too long that day but she was happy to just bat at the yarn for awhile as I knitted.






I have been knitting the bunny toy for my nephew. I used the pattern Simple Bunnies found on Ravelry by designer Julia VR. I still have the head and ears to knit. I wasn't seeing the part of the pattern for the head, but the ears part is in the pattern and are up next.



I started reading This Close to Okay by Leesa Cross-Smith. It seems good so far, it is a new release this year. I also took out the book From To-Do To Done by Maura Thomas. I will be working again on getting things done around our home and in my personal life. I am still reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, just waiting to get my hold from the library.

Thank you for stopping by! I am now fully vaccinated got the Moderna as my second dose and Pfizer as my first. It feels good to be fully protected now. Hope you all are staying safe! We are getting through this. I see cases rising a bit in Toronto, but hopefully we can keep it under control. 

Have a great day and stay safe!
