I am still suffering from a severe case of the Januaries. It’s still raining; half the village isn’t speaking to me (don’t ask, you’ll read all about it one day in my novel…); and for reasons entirely beyond my control, I can see the job and business I love slipping from my grasp. I’m pretty fed up.
It’s fortunate then that the making decided to behave this week, and all of my projects have been delighting me.
I dyed this set of purple mini skeins (note to self: there is a lot of winding in transforming a 100g skein into 5 20g skeins).
(Gifted, 100g/ 400m*)
This arrived in the post. Ahem. It’s for a commission, so that doesn’t count, yes?
It’s called Moonlight, and it’s turning into this Song of the Sea cowl.
This final project has been making me smile all weekend. I saw a link to Dropcloth samplers on a blog, and I swear I had ordered one in under a minute. It arrived in a happily short time from the US, and I have been forcing my family** to admire its progress all weekend.
Family: But what is it going to be?
Me: I do not care, I love it.
* The current running total for Stashdown 2014 is 710g/ 2490m knitted/ gifted.
**The family are currently indulging in manflu. They’re pretty tedious.
