Save Sunday

I saw some bloggers were "Saving Sunday". Maybe they meant a picture of a lovely relaxing Sunday. Maybe they meant just a picture. I tried to make it the best, most fun, tastiest, Sunday I ever had.
It was exhausting. I did have fun but worked awfully hard to make it fun. I read the papers, made pumpkin bread and roasted a chicken, started some socks for Christmas presents, walked the dogs, and generally worried I might not be having enough fun. Next Sunday maybe I'll settle for a picture while I'm doing nothing.

I will say that the socks I'm knitting are a pattern I've knit for years.
Some of our guy friends like them for hunting or ski boots. It was so much fun to start knitting. It wasn't long before I got the rhythm back and just relaxed with them. The pattern is the IBH socks from Green Mountain Spinnery and the wool is Eco Wool from Cascade. And regardless of what the pattern or the yarn says I knit them on size 4 needles.

This morning I ended my "Save Sunday" with a yoga class. That was a great way to start the week !

Those socks are gorgeous. I would just wear them around the house (probably on a lazy Sunday!). They look too nice to take out hunting in the woods.

love the socks too...and your bittersweet in the background. I used to be able to get some of that at a local street fair, but haven't seen any for years. It is so pretty. Hope next Sunday is more relaxing for you!

Oh I have to have a do nothing day on Sunday or it seems I'm tired the rest of the week. I like your idea of a picture while you're doing nothing ;).
Lovely looking wool. I just ordered some eco wool -- can't wait to get it in and start something. My guys love thick woolie socks in the winter too. I've only gotten one pair made so far - better get going -- Christmas is looming ;).

I've been quietly saving Sunday by taking a photo of our restful day. Looks like you found a lot to do on your Sunday! love the color of your new project.

Sounds like my Sundays...they usually are not too relaxing!
