Knitting in peacefulness ....

This whole pandemic really has me reflecting on life, the universe and everything else. What is important/meaningful to me?

For one thing, I refuse to look at this as social isolation but more as a quiet, peaceful time. An opportunity to spend time with myself, away from social distractions. It is allowing me to think about my priorities, my life and the next paths I will choose ... What really matters to me? ... my family, friends and hobbies. The rest, is just small stuff!

Sure I miss our weekly get-together at our local coffee shop, what we gals refer to as "Coffee Shoping" ... but this peaceful time only makes me more grateful for the friendships I have cultivated. When the quarantine has been lifted, we will have a wonderful show & tell party! Now there's something to look forward!

In the meantime, I have been knitting. Seems quilting has been put on the side for now. It's easier for me to sit in the living room and pick up the needles than it is to sit at my machine. That's ok ...

I finished this winter hat for my little Pumpkin, who is not so little anymore. 

I used Cuzco Cashmere, by the Plymouth Yarn Company ... 40% Superbaby Alpaca, 40% Mulberry Silk & 20% Cashmere ... As you can imagine, it is super soft. This is a birds eye view! 

Pumpkin wanted a pompom ... so I bought this gorgeous vegan pompon at my favourite brick & mortar yarn shop in Montreal ... Espace Tricot ... Le Pompom

And now, voici le pompom with le hat!

Now my little Pumpkin is all set for the winter! She be stylin' lol

How have you been doing? 

Thank you for stopping my! Wishing you a wonderful day! Cheers!

That is a beautiful hat, and pattern. I find it easier to work on projects while I relax in the living room too, so I do hand quilting and stitchery, but I am also sewing a little more too, going into another room gives me a break.

What a cute hat! I love the fun pompoms that are available now. Looks like you've been keeping busy -- I love your take on our quiet, peaceful time. Now, if only our houses wouldn't get dirty, there could be a lot more quiet and peaceful LOL!
