I celebrated the day in good company with other knitters. What I enjoy most about knitting with other people is that even though you’re rather different you still have something in common, something very concrete that is easy to talk about. Somehow this always results in happy people, good vibes, and mutual inspiration. It was a great day!
I started two new projects for this special occasion. I didn’t want to bring Jasmine or my cardigan because they need seaming, and since we celebrated knitting, I naturally wanted to knit. So I started the Monkey Socks by Cookie A., which I like so far. I had some sock yarn in my stash, which I’ve wanted to try out; wool, acrylic and cashmere. It’s nice and soft.
The other project I started was the Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark, which was one of the “Readers’ Choice Award Winners” on Knitting Daily. I’m using another yarn from my stash for this, a blend of wool and silk, which Karin gave me some time ago. It’s lovely (and it smells good too…)
