The yellow cardigan is done. It is “Golden Harvest” by Veera Valimaki. Golden, indeed! Look at that glowing yellow yarn. It looks like a crocus in the snow. A bowl of honey. Actual gold, even. It is Malabrigo Rios, in “Frank Ochre” and I am completely bowled over by its beauty. When I wear this, I feel like I am glowing, too.
Trying to take my own advice, I started something a little more complicated:
This is the beautiful Birkin sweater, knit in a monochrome palette. I got this far in an advanced state of monogamous devotion, and then ran out of the cream contrast yarn, so until the supply train leaves the distant warehouse, I guess I’ll have to find something else to do.
Socks! There is no excuse not to make socks. It snowed today.
I want to thank you all for your lovely, warm comments last week, on my new favorite topic: Making vs. Stuff. I loved the conversation, and it gave me a lot to think about. Let there ever be knitting and making in my life, all of my days.
