Knittin and reading. 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!
I hope you enjoyed this little video: I must admit that I can sympathize with that lady somehow. I feel a bit like her these days with the greed for knitting I have for that yummy handspon goodness I found last week. At work today, in a meeting, I was day dreaming about getting my knitting out of my bag, I even did, just to look at it and feel good but I didn't dare to start knitting because I believe my boss wouldn't understand that you can take a meeting serious whilst knitting...
I started with Sams lovely vest pattern for Aaron but frogged the first go because I noticed soon that I wouldn't have enough yarn to finish the piece in the size I wanted to. So I went back to get some more handspun yarn. They only had left some natural very soft (and expensive) alpaca yarn but I think it blends in nicely with the bright colors and I hope it will give a good contrast as collar, sleeves and ribbing.
As I suspected I never finished the book I started last week but instead found this one by Paulo Coelho at the library. I am feeling a bit like this book has been written just for me for this very time of my life. On the backcover it says:
"Pause. Contemplate. Dream. Prove yourself. Rediscover yourself. Wake up. Dare. Act. Win. "
But then again, thats what I usually feel about Coelhos books. I have read the first 60 pages and can't wait to continue. If only there wasn't all that knitting..
