Here is the muse
As I was busy Kitchenering these little beauties the other day, I thought how much easier life would be if closure could always be achieved so easily. After all, most of life's ups and downs and various problems involve a variety of threads. Just being able to weave all the ends in to a harmonious whole would lighten the load for most of us. Enough musing, already.
This Sunday's knitting meet up was kindly hosted by one of the group, since our usual venue was out of action. A great time was had by all, I think it fair to say, with the homemade goodies going down particularly well. My knit of choice for the day was another of those little projects that I made a trip to the States for. Took me all of 90 seconds this time. I had hoped to knit it in Rowan Wool Cotton, which I reckoned was pretty close to the yarn recommended. However, I'm knitting it in Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere. Although I love the colour (nothing like it appears here, naturally!) and feel of the yarn, it splits very easily, so I'm not sure how durable it will prove to be. The socks, however, I am delighted with. Knit in Cashmerino Baby, I am sure they will pill, but I don't care. I knat them on 3mm bamboo DPNs, instead of the recommended 3.25mm, and carried the cable right down to the toes, instead of stopping at the ankle. They are soooo comfortable that I'm about to do another pair in pale green. An everyday sock for wearing around the house to relax in.
Speaking of not relaxing, in other words going to work, how do y'all fancy commuting in this baby? Mr India and I spotted it while we were out walking last weekend. Never mind being a 2 or 3 car family. It seems that a paraffin budgie is what the discerning family need to get about these days.
and, finally, in this bitty little blog, here is a little pic to gladden your heart if you've had a grey day, weather or otherwise. Have to say my heart was getting a tad frustrated trying to post this and the helicopter pic - in the end I had to save this post as a draft, close it down, open up another page, upload the pics to that, reopen this one and finally cut and paste them here. Bet you needed to know that?. Anyway, enjoy the spring weather
