I've bleached the shawlette scarf. I got the effect I wanted. The yarn change is less dramatic now that the whole thing was bleached...When it dries and I put it on, I'll decide if it was the correct course of action. I wish it would have bleached out more. Why is it than one drop of bleach can ruin a sweatshirt and a bucket of bleach water barely does the trick?
The flowering trees in Chicago are amazing this week. This Spring has truly been like
a fantastic painting. Well that came out wrong. A painting is supposed to mimic real sights, not the other way around! You know what I mean.....the beauty for the trees and flowers makes even the tiredest alleyways look lovely.
It is the workend.
I am ready. Sometimes the focus required at work is a welcome relief to a mind that wonders with worry at home. It has been a tough two weeks. I'm seeking calm. I'm seeking focus. Doing my job well is a great reward in many many ways.
The quiet of the night shift when there is no light from the windows and the inside lights are low, is also a welcome thing. We may have storms, which I find so calming and soothing.
I think if I seek peace I will find it.
Happy WEEKEND to you all. Wishing you some peaceful knit time
