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
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.
