Spent some time knitting in a coffee shop and I was reminded of how thankful I am for knitting. For those that don't know, I'm not naturally a detail-oriented person and it's usually hard for me to focus on one thing for long periods of time. With knitting, I have to focus on details and on projects like this sample, I have to give it my full attention. I'm thankful that knitting slows me down and it helps me understand detail-oriented people- like my husband-at least a little bit more 😊
Endelig! Ikveld skal disse nøstene #påpinnene 🌸 Og det blir samtidig en selfie (med ansikt!) som en oppfordring til alle dere fine insta-venner om å poste bilder med fjes innimellom også. Det er mye gråe og hvite bakgrunner (kjenner meg igjen 🙋♀️), men det er så flott å se fine dere iblant også! #duerfinsomduer#uperfekterperfekt 🙌 New project in the making with super soft silk mohair 🌸 And posting a selfie including my face, encouraging all my lovely instafriends to do the same. I’d love to see more faces and not just grey/white backgrounds 🙌 #youarebeautiful#notperfectisperfect
While attempting to organize my stash, I came across this combo that I feel needs to become a shawl? Any recommendations for a worsted weight pattern? It's over 16 oz all together and the big caramel cake is a full 100 gram skein.
"One day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest. You have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had. You have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities. You have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing. A host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories. A variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories. You have become an incredible self sustaining thing of epic proportions. And you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be." - @nikita_gill, You Have Become a Forest 🌲

Please, let me know what you think about the short story that comes with this pattern. It's the first chapter of a longer one which I'll be publishing... oh, I'm already talking too much! Sorry, you have to be patient but I promise you,I'll let you all, my Instagram follower, know things well in advance! For now, please, just leave me some comments if you like. 🙊
Back to the pattern... I'm so in love with this little shawlette. It sits gorgeously on the shoulders and I can't stop to admire the curly ends in the mirror. You all know I have a crush on @uschitita yarn. Steffi is really an artist, she pours dreams in her skeins that only waited to be knitted in something to wear close to your heart. 💜
I can imagine this shawl in many of her colours. Think about Tiny Dancer or Sugared Violets... or any other, really!
If you live here in Europe or are just visiting Amsterdam, you can find the yarn at @stephen.and.penelope
Have fun with Secret Passage! I hope to see your works, please share and tag me so I can see and leave a nice comment! 🤗
