Steps to Contentment---Wrapped in Yarn

RE: Yesterday's Wordless Wednesday pic

That picture of my sister has always cracked me up!

My caption for it: Are you sure I'm the father??!


My favorite knitting spot and the steps to achieve it:

1. Warm, sunny day

2. Deck minus snow and ice (though it does need to be swept)

3. Basket of Plymouth Encore yarns

4. Diet Coke in a bottle, not a can

5. Yarn bobbins for Intarsia

6. Little red row counter

7. Clipboard with pattern chart

8. Citronella candle to anchor clipboard

9. Pencil for marking chart

10. Book stand

11. Good book to read while knitting

12. Sunglasses, as needed

13. Comfortable chairs: one for sitting/one for propping up feet

14. Laptop to read blogs while knitting (Use when wanting a change from the good book)

15. Capable knitting assistant, Max the Maximum Boxer

16. Last panel of the World Map ghan on appropriately sized circs

Yield: A glorious day of knitting for hours and hours

Note: Stop when you're tired!

Do what you love. Love what you do.

I love reading and knitting. It's so satisfying! It's gotta be garter or stockinette though.
