Sunday Loves

Happy Sunday! As much as I love sharing with you finished, blocked and all pretty knits, I think there is a certain beauty in a WIP’s mess with its uneven stitches, loose threads and open stitches. It shows behind the scenes progress that I personally cherish as much as the final result. My experiment with mixing Heritage and Wheat has moved to the sleeves stage and this is definitely my favorite part of the pattern. New summer knit in Daisy is waiting to be blocked and threads have to be fixed, this is my plan for today. I am looking forward to see how the yarn will open up after a nice bath – so far the fabric feels so smooth.

Another weekend plan is to continue my current fascinating read – The Diary of Anne Frank. I have no idea why I didn’t read it earlier though always had it on my must-read list. I decided to combine a good read and practicing my Spanish grammar, hence the Spanish translation. From my experience, this is the best way to learn the language, even if you don’t understand everything and it takes more time this way while you are looking for a certain word in the dictionary, with the time the language sort of sinks into you and before you know it, you speak it. I also downloaded Quizlet app – a great tool to learn new words and practice them, highly recommended!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

      From all the methods I am using this is probably the most effective one!

    I’ve read the book twice and would read it again. I love all your in progress projects 🙂
