Yarn Along: Ethereal Afternoons

Arizona Ash

“How did it get so late so soon?  Its night before its afternoon.  December is here before its June.  My goodness how the time has flewn.  How did it get so late so soon?”    Dr. Seuss

The wise words of the Doctor have spoken the truth, where has the time flewn?  I think the days are beautiful right now, the sun lying low in the south creates the most beautiful golden afternoons.  My cat and dog and myself can be found hanging out in the sun that shines through the family room windows most afternoons.  The leaves of the plants in the backyard glow so brightly, they look ethereal and heavenly.

I find this lighting addicting and the perfect time to sit quietly and knit; a time of reflection is always soothing to the spirit.

What’s on my needles today?  Well socks cannot be too far away from my fingers.  I had set a personal goal in January of attempting 12 socks for 2015, nothing overly ambitious.  I am excited to say that as of right now I am at 14.5 and have 15 & 16 already started, with about 4 weeks to finish them.  Hopefully the words I am reminding myself are “nothing overly ambitious” 😉 !!

Happy Anniversary

I also started a new pair of slippers for my husband, these slippers are the Amazing Siberian Slippers, by Henya Kazatchkov.  I knit him a pair last winter and he loves them, wears them everyday when it is chilly.  I find this pattern enjoyable to make, knitting the top of foot is hard on my hands (tight knitting), so I only knit an hour or so at a time on these.  But the finished slippers are worth it.


This is not Siberia

You can find my notes on my previous slippers on my ravelry page if you are interested in an ingenious pair of slippers.

I am curious if anybody else had set knitting goals for this present year and feel satisfied with their results and if you are thinking about what projects you want to cast on for the coming New Year!!

It seems there are so many projects to knit and just a small amount of time to get them done…

Until next time, have a blessed day.

  1. Love all the socks. I recently learned to make socks so I always have some on my needles. I made a goal to make a pair a week for the next few months. I’m doing ok with that goal but holiday knits are getting in my way 😉 I also just learned hats and thats been fun. I really like the idea of slippers!

    1. Jeanette, Thank you. Congratulations on all of your knitting progress! A pair of socks a week is inspiring, good luck. Hats for me are either hit or miss on fit, sometimes slouchy is what shows up instead of snug ?. Deanna
