But, yarn along and no more sock-knitting grandmas made it happen! I conquered my fears and cast on for socks. I bought the most beautiful yarn I could find (Olè, by katia) to get the right motivation and almost finished the first cuff - when I noticed it was too tight and would never slip over my rather big ankle like this. So, after a night of frustration, I remembered Enim Sous brave ravelling last week and did the same. And started again with 8 more stitches.
So, here I am, still at the cuff. but I am VERY motivated to keep going until the very sweet end aka warm new socks on my feet.
I also got some lovely Manos del Uruguay for my first Shalom, ment to be worn by Aaron, but I am afraid I will need some more details on the pattern for boys from JenMuna. I hope she will be well again soon and help me out ;-)
Btw: am I the only one around here, who has trouble taking undisturbed pictures during day light?
The book I got from the library this week is called "Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting". Writen by Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn. It is kind of spiritual, maybe a little too much for my taste, but still I was drawn to it and I like where it says to stop optimizing your child and start to just watch it grow. The more I read it, the more I like it.
My cup of tea today and most of last week is a white tea with rose blossoms. Very tender without the need for sugar or milk. And a very lovely scent. Do you smell it?
