December and gifts
Now,tell me,is it wrong to model a gift? Is it wrong to want to keep that gift? Of course,I will give it away,but I had to have the softness against my skin just once! It is the colinette zero...this one the one called whirley fig, the yarn is a chunky weight,but it is both thick and thin, creating a textural landscape over your knit. I thought the color went well with my new red coat... the pattern is the Dolores Park Cowl and if you have never made one,you should.. it works up quickly,in a couple of hours, even if you stop and admire the yarn every 15 minutes! I've made 2 this fall for gifting...I am hoping they like them... I also finished the Side Slip Cloche from Boutique Knits as a gift... another dust pink yarn...this one is a handspun from Shadyside Farms. It also worked up slubby,thick and thin..but an aran weight. I did not model this as you can see...didn't want to mold it to my head,I may not take it off!
And I modified Nora's Zakka bag pattern ,to use a felted wool,
and Japanese cotton...all pieces were cut and sewn...
I have the instructions all written down and I promise to share!
Hard to believe it's December already.
It will soon become winter officially.
Winter is the time for comfort,for
good food and warmth,for the touch
of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:it is the time for home.
(I call him my junior senior citizen!)
May you enjoy December.
