On the needles :: Marius onesie #2

Untitled


Oh, spring how we love you! You bring us hopes of summer and warmth. But also the spring cold...
I guess I thought it was warmer than it actually was on Sunday, sitting in the sun knitting with too little clothes on. So yesterday I ended up with a sore throat, fever and a head that felt like it would explode... Woke up with a terrible headache today, but after some sleep it went over. So yes, I put on some more clothes when I went outside knitting today. I guess I should have stayed inside, but I just can't sit and watch the great weather ;)

Knitting: I've started the body on my second Marius onesie. I'm knitting this one for a friend of my mom. I hope to have it done this week.

Reading: I usually have one book in the livingroom and one by my bed.
One Grave at the Time is my livingroom book and A Storm of Swords: Steel and Snow is the one I read before I go to sleep. Do you read more than one book at the time?

  2. I too am a reader of many books at the same time. This year I seem to have changed my strategy somewhat and find myself sticking with more-or-less one book at a time.
    Hope you feel right as rain again, spring does that to us, I am the same, out on the balcony, readying my pots for the warmer weather ;)

  6. Look at all your snow! I'll stop complaining about our chilly spring :0

    I DO read numerous books at a time. Right now I'm reading Painted Girls, Studio Saint-Ex and a Louise Penny mystery.

  7. What a pretty blue. Sorry bout the cold, but am betting sitting outside had nothing to do with your getting it. Germs cause colds, not being in the cold. Feel better soon.

  8. Oh no, not a cold! Please do take care of yourself, that doesn't sound good. At least you have plenty of knitting and good books to help you recover.

  9. How awful for you to catch a cold. Isn't it weird how it's sunny but cold? It's like that here as well. Total Yin & Yang. Hope you kick the bug soon and glad you're still in good spirits and getting some R&R in.

  10. Lovely photos; that snow scene reminds me of our ski cabin at Lake Tahoe. Makes me want to start knitting something warm and cozy.

  12. I am happy about your Spring weather ... and I'm amazed that you sit outside and knit where there is that much snow on the ground!

  13. So glad spring has sprung for you, can't say the same here in Colorado. 3 days straight snow, must be 2 plus feet out there. Yes I will read more than one book at a time but that usually means I am not to interested in either of them. Love your blog...thanks

  14. Hello! I'm visiting from the Yarn-Along list. Glad I'm not the only one still looking at snow. Minnesota is expecting another snowstorm tomorrow! Although it looks as if you at least have sunny weather. :-)

  15. You are so brave to be knitting outside with the snow still on the ground. I haven't ventured outside with my knitting yet still feeling it is too chilly. I hope you will be feeling better soon. Always have more than one book on the go. Usually a couple of non fiction as well as at least one fiction but usually at least one of these is on the kindle.

  16. Lovely photo.
    We experienced snow like that for the first time when visiting Austria over December (not used to it in South Africa - we get excited about a minutes worth of snowflakes, that melt before it hits the ground :-) Mu husband declared that we will definitely go again, we were like kids in the snow. I think I'll send them up the slopes and find myself a nice spot to do exactly that - read something great, hook a little bit, with einz cappucino on the side...
