good stuff coming up

This week, I got a good chunk of my exams done and then used the opportunity to reward myself with craftiness and happiness! My camera has also been busier than usual, so there’ll be lots to see here soon. To start off with, here’s some photographic evidence of my knitterly indulgence.

Remember when I talked about a yarn that I really wanted to try? Well, here it is! In the end I chose a light shade, because I want to make a hat with it, and I think the soft color will go well with my (new) dark hair.

I also got two Kim Hargreaves’ books, Precious and Breeze, that are just a joy to look at, and plan projects from! It’s been a happy weekend having all these new friends around the house… I hope you’re enjoying your weekend too! :)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. I love the texture of that yarn. It’s not overly perfect and you’ll still get nice stitch definition. Can’t bwait to see what you do with it.

  2. That yarn looks fascinating to knit with. I hope you make a great hat with it.

    Kim Hargreaves has such a talent! I have only one of her books – I should consider getting others, I think.

  3. Congrats on your exams! Such a relief to get stuff like that out of the way. Best of luck (not that you’ll need it) for the rest of them.
    I haven’t used a yarn like this before, it’ll be interesting to see the result!
