knitting, wool

a little knit

hello dear friends…gosh

its been such a long while since ive been here

and so much has happened

happy things and sad things

twists and twirls of life

some things cannot be placed into words properly

they can only been seen and heard and imagined

but never written

or read

to their justification

so lets just talk knitting instead.

i knitted this hat over christmas holidays – i love it. so much fun to see the pattern grow into place.i cant wait to knit it again using a plain yarn – the varigated hacho is lovely and soft (not to mention ive still got 6 skeins of it…). I do believe a plain yarn will make the rose leaves pop out. its a ysolda pattern. i love ysolda. we have a special friendship arrangement, she and i . she makes the patterns, and i buy them. i love them. this hat is the rose red.

this is my first knitting project in three months time.

it feels good to be knitting once again.

my grandmother said recently on the phone ” laughter is better than a pill”.

i think that is true. and when you feel like it, knitting is a great mender.

it can help you to pull yourself back together, stand against the wind, be brave,

and look forward to tomorrow.

  6. My gosh I have nearly finished the beret but don’t think I will attempt your shawl just yet…. What a wonderful colour, the depth of the red offset by the crisp stark white….. won’t that be a delight to wear….

    Keep knitting my dear. Enjoy your weekend… I am off to finish my cream little hat and then I will try and send you a photo of it…
    Love to you all Rose xxxx
