Look at that beautiful snaking curl of shawl!
My Bernina is serviced and ready to pick up! But how have I occupied myself whilst we’ve been apart?
I’ve been knitting. My Heaven And Space shawl definitely wins the award for most alien-like.
I knit this on the tube. As soon as the knitting emerges, I sense the intense prickle of scrutiny as any mathematicians or coders stare hard, trying to work out the formula for what I’m creating. I keep my eyes down!
Isn’t it a wonderful pattern? All or some of that 3D texture shall melt away when the piece is blocked. What shall be left are parallelograms of neatest, repeating delight.
I have also been prepping a coat. Which side of the fabric would you use as the right side? I’d love to think I might finish this in time to do battle with Siberian winters.
For extra warmth, I’m hoping to use a quilted lining bought from Stoff & Stil.
But mainly, I have been using the time to think and take stock. Which we all need to do, now and then. What have you been up to, friends?
