The Original Dropcloth Sampler, by Rebecca Ringquist.
I started another lace shawl but found it too hard to
concentrate on while everyone was home on holidays. So I frogged it and
cast on the Sunlight Shawl for Sad
People (and I do get sad!). There's lots of mistakes I didn't go back to fix as I
wasn’t use to working with slippery lace needles and such thin yarn. In
saying that, Malabrigo yarn has a wonderful feel and mesmerising colour way. I’m not bothered by the mistakes because they
remind me of special
moments in time, mostly difficult times. However aren't those times important
for personal growth, realisation and reflection?
Over the Summer holidays I (over) indulged in Netflix viewing. (One of the perks from moving out of Kosciuszko National Park) Currently knitting and cross stitching through Downton Abbey episodes. WW1 has just been declared over. Hurrah! Oh I do hope Lady Sybil and the chauffeur can fight against class barriers to be together...Aren't these British drama's - Call the Midwife, Land Girls and The Paradise - just the bees knees?
