Virginia Wolff Knitting, a portrait done by her sister Vanessa Bell, 1912. This painting is in The National Portrait Gallery in London. I was recently in London visiting family and friends. Number 1 on my list of things I wanted to do – if I was on my own – was to visit the National Portrait Gallery. Well the visit with family and friends was completely taken up with wonderful activities which did not include the NPG. Save that for next time. There is so much to do in London!!!
Sunshine At Last February 4, 2018
sun shining on my ongoing knitting project – I have in mind a wide mesh curtain which will allow some sunlight to filter through. I think it’s almost finished. I have to find my tape measure to assess. If it fails as a curtain it could be a blanket. You might call this mindless knitting while reading or watching television. It’s also making a slight dent in my stash.
Unfinished Knitting January 9, 2018
Unfinished object – I need help to get the sleeves fitting neatly – and I need to work on the neck
Another unfinished object – it’s easier to work on this puzzle than to figure out what I have to do with my knitting
Unfinished Objects – Knitting December 14, 2017
Just one of my many unfinished knitting projects. It’s just too tempting to leap into the next project before I really finish the current one. New Year’s resolution – Tackle this issue!
Images of Reading December 9, 2017
do you think my granddaughter has the right idea? a book, the cat companion, a favorite drink
or this man reading the newspaper in the painting by Edward Hopper
reading and knitting – the right combination for me – Dublin 1998?
In this case the reader took the picture – a sunny day in Dundrum – a good time for reading in the garden
