… on a cloudy day.
It feels like London has been grey and overcast for months now but my current knitting is definitely helping to alleviate the winter blues. In fact, it’s so bright and cheerful that I don’t mind that I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve ripped out the swatch and re-started it (and, for once, I’m not being sarcastic). I’m working on a new design that I plan on submitting for publication so can’t say any more about what it’s going to be yet. However, I can tell you about the yarn.
The yarn is artesano 100% alpaca 4 ply that I bought in the Life Craft in Glasgow when Steven and I met up with Helen over Christmas. I love knitting with this yarn; it is beautifully soft (yet stands up well to repeated ripping out), the stitch definition is lovely and the colour is just amazing. So much so, that I always have a smile on my face when I pick it up to work with, even if it is to rip out the whole thing for the umpteenth time!
