My top five moments for the month of May

It seems that just a few weeks ago it was snowing outside and everything was sugar-glazed and yet my burned nose still remebers the knitting session by the lake a few weeks ago. I love how seasons change but I am mesmerized of how fast time flies. And it seems to just go faster as I grow older wiser.

In an attempt of recording some of the little day to day, seasonal pleasures that make life so beautiful I’ll introduce a best of post at the end of every month. It would be so cool if you would joing me in doing the same.

5. This scribbled poem on a library desk

I was working at the library the other day and I saw this poem scribbled on my old, wooden desk:

“Why ain’t it always summer?

Why must it end?

Who wants to put their shoes on?

NOT ME, MY FRIEND”

Hah 🙂 And what better time to see this than Spring, so you can really appreciate the coming of summer?

4. Not rushing through my knitting

When i work on a project I get this strong feeling of having to FINISH IT as soon as possible. Which makes treat things I like to do like a chore sometimes. So this time I’ve only picked up this project when i wanted to and only did a few rows if that is all I felt like it. A great inspiration for knitting is Jen, who I think might be responsible for my new found love of knitting.

3. Getting new, wooden needles

Since my new addiction passion for knitting, I’ve realised how important it is to have the ride size needles when working on an imagined project and how wonderful it feels to work with wooden needles. I love the texture and their soft toc-toc.

Hey, you, knitters out there, do you do anything to keep you wooden needles happy? Like oil or wax? Is it crazy to ask?

2. Spring!

We moved to Canada a few months ago and it was strange to leave Barcelona in almost spring and then wait for it for so long. In one week everything exploded into green leaves and posh flowers.

1. Knitting in public

The best moment this month was knitting in public for the first time. I love it when Heidi talks about kitting and sewing in public transport, but it was never something I did. It was beautiful to feel the lake breeze (get a sunburn) and knit at the same time.

What about you? What was our favourite thing about this month?
