summertime saturdays.3

There has been knitting happening over here, I promise.  Making progress on my seed-stitch throw.  Little by little.  Stitch by stitch.  Row by row.  A little boring, but totally mindless.  Perfect, actually.
I can't believe it is Saturday, again.  A run to the bagel store (by my husband) and we were all set.  So, no recipes to share.  Yet an ideal summer morning.
Hope everyone is having a super weekend.

This Saturday feels like a bonus day!! With our 4th of July holiday yesterday, it seems the relaxed nature of the weekend is being extended. Your Saturday morning breakfasts are so inviting and beautiful and I wish I were there!

Rainy said...

I swear your pictures of your breakfast table is right out of a magazine, and you knit too. What more can I say!

You really are making progress on that throw, you are so right that it is a row-by-row affair!

Great photos, love the colors in your throw and I really like the look of seed stitch. I spent my Saturday morning buying yarn at my local LYS at their 40% off sale.

I can't wait to see more!

Your knitting is so nice. I like this colors!

Poshyarns said...

Seed stitch on a throw!! Are you insane??? Gorgeous colours though and I am amazed how much of it there is already, your seed stitch is much faster than mine.

Breakfast looks so good, I wish I could join you.

Gigi said...

Looks like it is still the 4th with those red and blue berries along with the white cream cheese! Looks like a wonderful spread. =-)

Louise said...

What a lovely throw - gorgeous colours!! Do you know we call 'seed stitch' 'moss stitch'? Breakfast looks sooooo good!!

Queen of the froggers said...

The colours in your throw are great together, I am not sure if I could do it all in seed stich though!

Sandy said...

The colours here are fabulous. I'd love a colourful knit throw for the couch, but if I remember your calculations correctly, this may take me years. ;)

Alisha said...

Loving your Saturday posts!!

You should make up calenders for Christmas for family and friends with your Summer Saturday photos!

leslie,
your seed stitch throw is amazing. I love the color combination and the stripes.

Hurrayic said...

Mmmm...those bagels looks good. I miss NJ bagels. NY ones are good, NJ must have a special ingredient. Since we've moved to the midwest (ugh- no offense if you live in the midwest), I've been unable to find good bagels.

The Knitty Sisters said...

Mmmmmmm those bagels look quite tasty. I admire your perseverance to stick through the endless rows of seed stitch. You possess more patience than I do.

La Cabeza Grande said...

How perfectly delightful! I just received a package of cotton yarn that is destined for life as a colorful throw.

Gina said...

I love your stripes!!! The colors are just perfect.

Philigry said...

tiennie said...

You photograph little slices of heaven!! Love the throw!!!

Girl with the Purl said...

Seed stitch is beautiful, especially when different colors are used. I am so jealous! :)

Cinnamonamon said...

So, if I showed up unexpectantly some Saturday morning, would there be enough breakfast?
I need to get some grocery shopping done today- I should have a list for a week's worth of meals to shop for and all I can think of is some yummy and simple breakfast-y goodness... need some more fresh berries, now that our strawberry patch is pretty much done, sigh... and some melon...

Happy knitting-
ali

Looks like a nice Saturday morning! I should try to do something like that for my family. It seems like a nice little tradition!

The throw is looking great!
