More of the Same

We were back in Philadelphia.

We had drinks at a bar on the deck of this boat.
It was my birthday.

They had a lot of plants.


It was extremely hot.  (When the heat gets a bit oppressive, all I do is remember the dark frigidness of winter, and I feel fine.  I think to myself that if I could feel this heat for just 10 minutes in January, I would absolutely love it.)
I have not posted in a while because I have nothing new to post.  I am working hard on some designs that I cannot share.  I have done an amazing amount of swatching.  Bit by bit, swatch by swatch, I have been figuring  out what I will do...

Sometimes it feels all a jumble.  But I keep on with it.

I never stop knitting.
The answers come slowly...


  1. "Never stop knitting!" Should be a bumper sticker! I like your attitude about the heat. I just wilt and complain!

    Belated happy birthday!

  2. Every birthday is a great day, even the ones that seem too big! I plan on listening to my own advice in 4 years when I survive, no ... achieve, still no, celebrate - yes that is it, celebrate 70! (sigh)

    Happy Birthday dear blog friend.!

  3. Looks like you had a good birthday, enjoy seeing all your swatches. Have a great year!

  4. Happy belated Birthday, Carolyn!
    O, I do love the tall ships. I bet it was a great day.

    Lovely swatches and great colours too!

  5. Thanks, everyone, for the Birthday wishes. I am lucky to have you all as blog friends!

    Dixie, the colors will not all be together. Some of the swatches are made with scrap yarn and some are not. All will be revealed in time :-)

  6. It sounds like you had a great birthday, Carolyn! I enjoyed the photos and look forward to seeing what you will design with the swatches!
