The View From...

I seem to have adopted a new knitting spot and I think it has the feline seal of approval. The cats change 'their' place fairly regularly. They normally have a couple in rotation as a minimum, a daytime one and an evening one. If they can manage to get a hold on a seat that is disapproved of by their servants then so much the better; even if it seems like a hard, miserable surface, like say a table. My two knitting spots are normally snug on the sofa or the deckchair for a sunny weekend. Just lately the garden table and chairs seem right. Yep, I can see that if we get much dry weather this summer this will be the place to find Lil and I.
The view from here is very lush and green at the moment.
It's definitely been influencing the yarn choices for the three projects I've cast on in the last week or so. Angee, Lazy Leaves and Baktus.
The scarf was an accidental cast-on, in so much as something so deliberate can be accidental. I was winding the Natural Dye Studios yarn intending it for the Lazy Leaves socks but found it was so soft it seemed a waste to wrap it round toes. I've seen so many lovey Bakti of late that it was on the needles before I knew it.

What a lovely knitting spot! My cat is the same - sleeps just where I don't want her to! (mostly...)

Lovely new projects too, all of them! The Baktus is a hard-to-resist project isn't it!

gosh everyone's making that scarf!! I can see why.

I think sitting there looks just lovely. And green.

Knitting outside in the garden with a friend - what could beat that?

That looks like a pretty idyllic spot! I hope you get enough summery weather to sit out there!

Charity said...

That looks like a wonderful place to relax and knit and think...

Don't you hate it when those knitting projects sneak up on you? :o)

The new knitting spot looks very tempting, what with lovely greenery and cat-endorsement, but what's happened to the weather? Gah.

Your garden-inspired knits are looking good!

Nice knitting spot! Look at your kitty so content :D
My knitting spot is on a swiveling armchair from Ikea (currently taken over by Kumo). You have been busy with lots of projects. I love the colours!

Isn't it funny how we seem to get into colour ruts? Someone pointed out ot me that I was on a blue sock kick and I didn't believe them until I checked. I think green is perfect for this time of year.

What an adorable kitty companion!

the garden and knits all look gorgeous.

What I'm amazed by is how sweetly your cat is sitting on the table when he could be off investigating the garden!
