Weekend Knitting

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Yesterday my boyfriend, my parents and I went over to my boyfriend's mom's place. My parents met his mom for the first time and it was so nice all being together and them getting to know each other. My boyfriend and I have been talking about getting engaged soon,so it is a nice time for them to meet. Today my boyfriend and I went downtown to get some things he needed and then we went by the library to get a book. The one I picked up is called Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls by Elizabeth Renzetti. It looks interesting, it is a book of essays she has written on various topics relating to feminism. I am looking forward to reading it.

This weekend has been so nice. It was mostly spent reading, knitting, seeing family, and relaxing at home. It is so nice to have weekends like this when I can spend the day however I like and get some things accomplished at home. I feel more refreshed to start the week off if I have a Sunday where I have lots of time to prepare and plan for the week as well. I will be writing my meal plan and writing in my planner tonight. I want to plan out how I will use my time this week to be more productive in getting things done and accomplishing my goals.

Yesterday I cast on to start knitting a new scarf with the  yarn Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus Dappled in the colorway 'On the Rocks'. It is such a soft yarn and It has been so nice to work with. Last weekend I also bought some new wooden needles at Romni Wools pictured below. They are made by Brittany. Both the needles and the yarn are so light and delicate, so when I am knitting with both together it so light, like I am not holding anything much at all.

I cast on 30 stitches and am using size US 9 - 5 mm needles. I will try to knit the scarf with one skein of the yarn since I only purchased one. We will see how long it becomes.If it is shorter I might sew up the ends and turn it into a cowl. I am not using a pattern for the scarf and am simply knitting in stockinette stitch, so knit the front side and then purl the back side the whole scarf.

I received the hedgehog pin pictured below for my birthday from my boyfriend's step mom and dad for my birthday. It is from The Clever Clove. I love it, it is so adorable and it fits in so well beside the other knit pin I got from SeaandLake. The Clever Clove is currently on a break for a maternity leave and SeaandLake is not in business anymore.
