Pretty in Pink.

Hi there friends.
We have now started the count down to move to our house and we think we are about 2 to 3 weeks away ... I'm so very happy and I feel so blessed. Our house is turning out just perfect for us and I can hardly wait for the day I can tell you all ... Yes we are here in our house :)
But I have to be honest I'm not looking forward to the transition... The move .
And that is why I haven't been very present here or even to visit your blogs... I just haven't had much energy left ... But I know it is all for a good final destination... and I'm trying to enjoy the journey.
And talking about journey ... I finished my SIL's blanket just in time for her birthday. She had a glorious party and I got to give it to her... However, I didn't have the time ( or the space) to get a proper photo shoot yet. So I think I will have to wait for a little while before I can show it to you. But I promise it will very soon.

In the mean time, yesterday while reading Kirsten's blog, I was so very inspired to pick up my lacy scarf again. She is knitting a beautiful lacy shawl and she is enjoying it so much. I had stopped mine because the yarn is so very thin it was taking fffffffffoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvveeeeeerrrrrrrrr to get anywhere.
After reading her post I thought to myself " and what is the hurry? " I am not going anywhere or have a deadline to finish it today ... So, all of the sudden, just like magic, I feel a huge sense of relief and I'm relaxing knitting away... As slow as I want and enjoying every single moment of it ....
After all Thank God Is Friday....

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

***The pretty pink scarf is heavily inspired on a ravelry free pattern: Florence. I modified it a little by adding a few rows of stockinette stitches and I really like it. The yarn is Swan Island - Natural Colors Collection in the color Blush.


  1. I'm so excited for you Taci! Moving I to your new house. Fun! But I know it's also a very stressful time so be sure to take good care of yourself my friend. Your scarf is gorgeous and you're right. There is no hurry. Just the soothing motion of the needles.

  2. That is soon that you'll be moving into your very own home designed especially for your family. You are so lucky! That is a dream I'll never live. Your pink scarf is just amazing, bravo! I look forward to seeing you again soon.. and someday seeing your new home!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Oh Taci, that yarn is beautifully delicious!!! And I am so thrilled for you, to be almost....home!!!! I can't wait to see your new place! AND the blanket you just finished!!!! Pace yourself! Moving is so hard!

  4. Oh, it's absolutely perfect! The perfect color, and lovely pattern. I'm so glad you're still enjoying the knitting of it. :)

  5. So delicate! It will be well worth the time. Simply gorgeous and the color is lovely too.

  6. Your knitting project is beautiful and the yarn looks very soft. I hope the transition goes smoothly for you as you move into your new home. Have a wonderful evening, Heather

  7. Oh how exciting Taci to be moving to a new home that you have designed yourself. The scarf is going to be beautiful. I used to stress about taking so long to finish or having unfinished projects. I've stopped worrying! Feel much better. :-) Happy Moving Hugs Anne x

  8. Hi Taci, I feel for you, moving home is a very stressful thing, it's good to hear things are progressing for you in the right direction though. The knitting is pretty even if it doesn't grow very quickly, i agree, what's the rush, just enjoy the moment :-)

  9. Both the color and pattern for your scarf are lovely! Enjoy the process!

  10. Taci,

    I wish you the best of luck on the move and the scarf. Seems like lace takes forever, but you are right there is no hurry, enjoy the process and the beauty of the yarn and pattern.

    Sending you a hug and a Happy Mother's Day a bit late.

  11. Hi Taci, congrats on getting closer to the move-in date. Will be so worth it in the end. And then you can breathe a sigh of relief and really enjoy your new home. I am learning more and more just to relax and lean into everything. :) Best wishes, Tammy
