I wrote in my last post about a current lack of focus for reading. Happily, I am finding the opposite with knitting and crochet. I can hardly tear myself away from my main projects which is a great feeling. This weekend is diary-clear so I am hoping to make some good progress with my needles and hooks.
My brioche wrap is coming along nicely – I’ll soon be in the depths of that deep lilac and can’t wait!
And my Rozeta throw is growing apace. I recently finished the corners….

Meanwhile, I have recently decided to learn how to knit socks. As you can see from these projects above, I tend to work on rather epic-sized blankets and wraps at home, which are of course totally unsuitable for travel knitting. I often find myself on trains or buses with itchy hands (not a symptom of Covid-19 as far as I know) and the perfect solution is to work on something small and easily portable. Here is my fledgling attempt at a basic sock, with huge thanks to my lovely friend Catherine for donating such beautiful yarn. More on this sock adventure in due course if I can make some progress! 😀🧶
Meanwhile, knitting in front of the TV inevitably influences one’s viewing experience. I was watching the film The Aftermath last night and could not help but snap a reference image of Alexander Skarsgård playing Stephen Lubert in this magnificent cable jumper! 😂
