Knitting, reading, (and tea). My favourite things to complete a perfect day. So I am joining Ginny on Wednesdays for Yarn Along to share my passions with you. Come and join in if you like!
This week I have conquered yet another knitting fear of mine: colorwork. I have been so in love with some projects I have seen at Loris, at Ravelry and Pinterest and in my new book. That book has really inspired me a lot so far and it made me dig into my stash, come up with some lovely dk merino colors and just give it a try. Okay, I was not mistaken, it does take ages (in the beginning) and the yarn gets tangled a lot and there was some frogging of course, but now, my first mitten is growing slowly but steadily and I might even be done with the first one by easter and finish the second one by the beginning of summer. Who cares? The knitting is great! I LOVE how colors and strange pattern turn into something so beautiful, like a painting. I have even dreamed about my mittens the last two nights. Please tell me, you also have some knitting dreams every now and then.
There was tea too this week of course, nothing new though, just my regular Chai, day by day, no desire for a change here.
Happy knitting to you!
