Saturday was a busy day with a bumpy bus ride across the countryside to the birthday party of one of Kaya’s friends, last minute errands, and friends coming over to ours later on.
So today had to be a quiet sort of day. We went for a walk and while the snow that was announced has not arrived yet, it is bitter cold. The wind makes the baby gasp and hide away in the sling.
I am hoping to finally cast on for my Downtonesque shawl (for the knit-along) this evening. Kaya in the meantime has been busy with his own knitting. You saw it here – our birthday present for him – a knitting fork, also called lucet. Apparently the vikings used something like this to make their ropes. “Is this a present for boys?”, the husband asked. Gender neutral, my love, gender neutral.
When we were getting ready for our bus rides yesterday, Kaya asked if he could take his knitting on the bus too. A boy after my own heart.
Weekending with Amanda.
I hope you are enjoying yours and will have a good start to the new week.
