For Christmas (or was it birthday?) I was given
a skein of lovely grey 100% mink yarn.
It's lovey, so soft and so very delicate but with a
still noticeable durability for all it's delicate features...
It took a while to make into a ball.
I am making a shawl,
as easy as is possible:
start with three and increase.
I am using my Oma's knitting needles
that I was given for my birthday.
I am hoping for a beautiful finish to this,
and it is so calming to knit.
It will take me a while but that
is just fine!
Cast on a bulky brown scarf,
started with some knit rows and now
Will be a DV Christmas present,
size 13 needles.
The sunshine squares blanket is going well.
Much work to be done on it yet
but it will be cute and cheery when it's done!
I loved this book.
It was so many wonderful things.
I wrote about this book yesterday.
It's such a lovely book;
encouraging, restorative, at times light and funny,
at times enlightening, profound;
it was full of love and encouragement.
It was exactly what I needed.
What are you creating and reading??!
