On Sunday, I needed a rabbit. So I broke out my luscious silk Hip Knits yarn and started on the bunny on Jess's site. I have raved about Jess's patterns before, and while knitting up this little head all I could think was "My goodness- the cuteness! This girl (meaning Jess, not me) is pure genius!" I just love how perfectly round and sweet it is turning out to be.
It also brought me back in to my favorite newish Sunday ritual. It involves first, knitting at the kitchen table listening to the radio - Tapestry at 2:00 for a little bit of soul food, Between the Covers at 3:00 for my literary fix. Later on I listen to the World this Weekend followed by the program I wait for all afternoon,
Pearls of Wisdom. I try and time making dinner to this show because it is always the most delightful, obscure mix of music. It is fun to cook to and I love the host.
After dinner, I have taken comfort during my stressful small feeling last couple of months by watching Rosemary and Thyme on TV Ontario at 9:00. If you haven't seen it, it is a British show about two women gardeners who always come across some improbable dead body or other and solve mysteries! I love it- it is a gentle drama, not too scary or challenging and I love to see for once, older women as the protagonists. Ideally, it is watched in bed, under the covers with the cats cuddled up around me.
