WOYWW 272 - Knitting My Heart Out!

Hello dear friends.  Happy Wednesday.   It's the day we meet up at Julia's place, at Stamping Ground.  This is the day that desks are shared from around the world.  Not only desks but sometimes we get to see wonderful projects too!

In my previous post I shared the backgrounds that I created in the Art Journaling class I took with Dyan.  It was non-stop action!

I started a new position at work so this week has been exhausting - so not much playing.  The sound of my knitting needles is very calming so I've been doing that while watching t.v.  I've been knitting spa cloths using the seed stitch.  If you're a regular here you've heard about these before.

So, my desk has been my comfy arm chair (that rocks - can you see it?  Me rocking and knitting at the same time?).   I didn't take a photo of my spa cloths so I thought I'd share the owl that my friend knitted for me.  Yep, I love all things owl!
As always, I will visit those that visit me and end in the same number as me.  I will more than likely get around on either Friday or Saturday.

Hi Kay!

Aw, I love your owl - so cute :)

I hope the new job is less stressful for you? Need to send you a catch up email!

Love and hugs, Di xx

Oh my gosh! The owl has wee little glasses. I love it. I wish I knew how to knit but really one hobby is all I have time for and can afford. Good luck at the new job. PJ #59

Congrats on the new job, always a little stressful starting a new job, or position.

I LOVE your little owl, it's just precious in his glasses.

Look at his spectacles! Sooooo cute. Goodness, your friend is clever :-)
I didn't realise you were starting a new work role, it's always hard settling into that, isn't it? Be careful and give yourself some TLC. Knitting sounds good xx
Hugs, LLJ 10 xx

Your knitting sounds like a nice relaxing balance for the challenge of a new job. Especially when done in a rocking chair!
Have a fun week

OmGoodness how cute is your new owl friend he just make you smile every time you see him the glasses are too cute.
It's always tough the 1st week at a new job but I'm sure you'll have a less stressful time once your use to it :)
