I finished it!
London, New York, Paris
It’s been a while since I posted on here. Running out of thread put a temporary stop to the cupcake piece and my motivation slowed down significantly. BUT. I’m back! I’ve just discovered these pretty designs from Satsuma Street and am desperate to get stitching again!
These are precious and I should get them after I finish some of my current things.
Day Sixty Six
This is a cross-stitch mum did for me when I was little. I picked it out and she did it for me. I have it hung up because it’s a nice picture, and it brings back the memory of me asking her to do it for me after seeing it in Hobbycraft.
Today I had the blessing of visiting a close friend of mine and her daughter.
The hat is a Pikachu hat I knit for my brother, Charlie, back when he was a young’un of the same size. Being that he’s now four years-old, he gave the hat back to me to give to Gwen ‘cause “she’s not a big boy yet”. Right on, kiddo.
Scarf knitting for my aunt attempt #2. I wasn’t having problems with the previous pattern, but I was having problems having the brain space to work on lace regularly.
This way, she’ll actually get it soon-ish and won’t have to block it after washing. Plus I really like letting the sparkle in the yarn be the special element instead of competing with fancy lace.
Knitting Inspiration - Sunlight. It’s just starting to make an appearance in the mornings, and is hanging around just a little while longer in the evenings. It’s not anywhere close to warm yet, but something about the glow of sunlight, even in the middle of Winter, makes it seem like things could burst into bloom at any moment.
I’m particularly fond of the edge between sunlight and shadows, that seems to gleam extra bright. I find it echoed in the edges of stitch pattern sections, especially where lace transitions to stockinette stitch.
