Postponing the Wedding, Knitting and Reading Updates

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I have felt more busy than usual lately. For weeks approaching the wedding we were getting ready and getting some last details settled. Then there were some restrictions set in Toronto that no more than 10 guests indoors. We were worried about those restrictions happening in York Region where we are getting married so we made the difficult decision to postpone. Then the restrictions were put in place last week. We have postponed our wedding again to next year. We have the month of March in mind now and hoping the Covid-19 situation is better then and less restrictions so we can have a fun wedding, that is closer to what we have imagined.


I started knitting a hat using the pattern Amelia Slouch Beanie by Elsa McLaughlin on Ravelry. It is a pretty popular pattern, so I decided to give it a try. I bought this gorgeous yarn that I saw at Michaels and instantly thought of knitting a bulky slouchy hat for the Fall and add a pompom on the end.




I am still working on knitting a scarf for my Fiancé, Liam's as a Christmas gift. I am following the  Ridge Rib Men's scarf pattern by Purl Avenue. It is a good 4-row repeat pattern. I like knitting this easy to remember pattern, so I can watch TV shows and YouTube vlogs while knitting it.



I started reading In Five Years by Rebecca Serle. It is so good so far, and I can't wait to read more to find out what happens. I originally found this one on goodreads and thought the plot sounded so interesting. Woman has five year plan and has a life all planned out and things going on track, then wakes up to a whole other life with another man. 


I finished to the audiobook of  Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis. She gives so many good tips, I will probably end up listening to this one again just to jot down the different suggestions she shares. She has a lot of tips for achieving goals and also inspires you to make time for working towards those goals.

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am happy to be posting again. I have today until Friday off from work, and I look forward to getting in some more knitting and reading time. We will also be moving to a condo townhouse soon in early November, so I will be busy packing up my things and planning for the move. 


Have a good day!

    1. Thank you Honoré, we do feel like it was the best decision. It was a let down after getting excited to have it again but we want to keep everyone safe and we wouldn't have anyone able to come so we had to postpone. Thank you very much and hope you enjoy your week!

  3. Oh, ugh. I am so sorry you are having to postpone. My heart aches for you. May you find a balm in your days as you wait (and may there be a vaccine that works, soon!)
