Down Time

So for the past 9 wks, I have been MOVING.  Since hubby & I moved to another state it's been just the two of us packing and moving boxes in the mom-mobile.  This past weekend was the last weekend for moving.  We really hustled to finish.  Then, Mon & yesterday I was washing laundry & dishes, and unpacking like a fiend.  This morning I woke up and my joints, muscles, and feet are getting their revenge.  Everything hurts!  (I think this means I'm getting old.)  BUT - for every negative, there is a positive.  And the positive is that I curled up in a blanket and started reading Eat Pray Love and knitting the Jasmine Lace Fingerless Mitts.  A little down time is just what the doctor ordered.

Let me just say, that I'm only in Book 1 of Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and already am smitten with this book!   I adore her writing style and sense of humor as well as her candor. My goal is to finish the book so I can go see the movie with the goils!

Here are the mitts I started:

I'm knitting the Jasmine Lace Fingerless Mitts by Adrienne Fong in Regia Color 4-Ply (Classic Brasil Color) for my mom's birthday.  I'm also making her a batch of my hand lotion for her to go along with the mitts.

Now all that's missing is a foot massage and some chocolate!  ;p



  1. Eat Pray Love is on my wishlist of books to read, but finding the time to finish a book isn't always easy. I started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo about a month ago, and although it's a really good book, I still haven't finished..ugh!

    I love those gloves and the color you chose. I'm going to have to add this pattern to the growing list of things I want to knit :)

  2. I have a somewhat odd question - were you knitting and reading at the same time? If so, how? If I could figure out to do both at the same time then I could knit a lot more.

  3. Sounds very relaxing! Hope it did what you needed!

  4. I adore that book. I really didn't think I'd like it, but I loved her honesty and humility about those whole experience. And yeah... how do you read and knit at the same time???

  5. I don't knit and read at the same time! LOL!! :) I DO listen to audiobooks and knit at the same time. So far, I really like this book!
