Knitting Baby Hat, Cross Stitch, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. This week has been busy at work, and I have been staying at home all week and working from home. I have been going on walks and doing yoga in the morning or on my lunch breaks. I am really enjoying it and it is a good way to get a workout in each day. 

I started knitting a baby hat this week for my nephew. I am using the Simple Lines Baby hats pattern by Heather Tucker on Ravelry. I enjoyed knitting the baby blanket so much using their pattern, and really wanted to knit another gift before I visit from a distance soon. I am using the same yarn as I used for the blanket because I have a lot left over. I bought an extra skein of yarn in order to knit a few extra things for him once I was done the blanket. 


 I am slowly working on the "I Can't Adult Today" cross stitch from Michaels. I am working on the leaves around the edges now. I am enjoying cross stitching, and it was fun picking up this hobby early this year. 


This week I am reading The Trainable Cat by John Bradshaw and Sarah Ellis. I am really interested in this book so far. I don't own a cat right now, but I will be getting one soon. Planning on getting one from a breeder by end of May or early June! I want to learn more about cats and what the training process would be like. It isn't so she can do tricks, more for training not to bite on wires, or scratch our couch haha

I am also reading Dearly by Margaret Atwood. This one interested me because I really enjoy reading poetry and whenever I read Rupi Kaur's books, I realize I love poetry and find it so relatable and calming. This one is good so far and I love her Handmaid's Tale books and think she is a great writer, so I also wanted to read more of her work. I am also reading Presence by Amy Cuddy. I am liking it so far, but taking a bit more time to get into it.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope that you are doing well and keeping safe. I can't believe how long this pandemic is dragging on. I definitely have the pandemic fatigue they are talking about. We can only hope that things get better now with having the vaccines coming. We still haven't gotten ours yet, but we put our names down on the list to be contacted once there are vaccines available according to our age and where we live. Hopefully we can make an appointment soon! 

Have a great day!
