☀ Sunlit Sunday (#8): Knit 1, Purl 1

I practised sprinting yesterday.
Perhaps sprinting is overstating the case, but a few quick dashes were made.
For a brief while in the afternoon, the sun would appear for a few moments,
then disappear behind a cloud,
while I dashed between rooms trying to capture a ray or two for "Sunlit Sunday".

I thought I'd see how the sun played on the knitting.
The neglected knitting.
The warm brown wool from Prince Edward Island knitting.
The where-did-I-leave-off-better-sort-this-out knitting.

I'm using a sweater pattern ("jumper" for the over-the-pond folks) from one source, but doing a bit of texture using a design from this book.

Rephrase: The plan is to do the aforementioned. 

The knitting needles haven't been clicking.
My follow-through hasn't been clicking.
I need a better routine to my day, one that clicks. 
I'm a dropped stitch in the ribbing of Blogland creativity!

Here's what is done so far, highlighted by the infrequent sunshine.
I thought if I showed it now that perhaps I could update its status later.
Some sunny inspiration would help.

 Tick tock, tick tock.
Knit 1, purl 1.
Click, click.

I hope you'll visit those who link below and share some of their sunshine.
Also, I have a little giveaway that you may read about and enter here.

Now it's time for: 


  1. Oh, look how beautiful the kitting in the basket is! I love the colors and the textures bathed in the warm sunlight! It is lovely!

  2. You're a better woman than I Karen; no patience for knitting. What if you save the sweater for a rainy day? :-)
    Don't know where my link went, hopefully it's there somewhere.

  3. Your yarn looks so soft and cozy. I wouldn't dare leave my yarn in a basket else Shadow would be snatching it away for play time.

  4. I love the colour and texture of that yarn.
    I started a little infant's dress last year and have it nearly finished. On Monday a friend is going to help me to finish it off - because I can't find my place in the pattern!

  5. My kitty's would love to play in your basket... Love the way the sunshine makes the yarn look so soft and warm...Have a wonderful week and thank you for the party ... hugs, Cherry

  6. Hi there. This is my first time participating in Sunlit Sunday and I thank you for hosting it. Your photos are lovely and I think your 'jumper' is coming along beautifully. I remember while visiting in England we heard that term for the first time and didn't know what they meant. lol Blessings, Pamela #4

  7. This is my first time participating, too. I admire people who can knit - I have not got the patience!

  8. Hi,Karen.

    Your knitting in the sunlight makes my heart warm.

    Thank you for helping me a lot. Next time!


  9. I find myself doing the same thing trying to catch a sunlit photo. I cannot knit but crochet all the time. Looks like you have a great start.

  10. It looks like you have a good start on the sweater. I cannot knit a stitch or purl a 1. I don't have the patience.
    Have a great weekend. I hope the sun stays out.

  11. I have a crochet basket full of half finished work,
    maybe today;).

  12. Such pretty pics Karen. Have a wonderful day, and enjoy!

  13. So sorry I forgot about Sunlit Sunday have been taking advantage of slightly warmer days to do some tidying in the garden.

  14. I do so enjoy Sunlit Sunday!!! Thank you. Your knitting is beautiful. I started a new scarf and I am enjoying the challenge of the pattern! Wishing you well! Cathy

  19. Great shots, I love the way the sun is hitting the knitting! Your knitting is wonderful, very talented and creative. I was never any good at it, my grandma tried to teach me.

  20. Cozy and warm..that's what I see in these images. The basket with yarn and knitting great looking; adds to the home decorating! Someday I'll pick up the needles and knit one etc..Great post!
