doubts & certainty

"Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty" {quote} from the movie DOUBT... When I purchased this Rowan Summer Tweed I was certain what I was going to knit..... it was going to be Whitby from this new magazine ... but,I doubted that I would like it in the end... so, instead I decided to make this Veste Croisse... this,I had no doubt,that I would love... I was certain of it at first,I was doubtful of the yarn, but as I made progress, I knew,with all certainty that this yarn...silk and cotton...tweed would be perfect...light,summery,just was I was hoping for... yes,I am certain I will love wrapping in this. and when this arrived from Elaine {thank you again} I knew, without a doubt, that I loved it, I still am not certain,however of what to make... but,whatever it becomes, I am certain it will be loved...no doubt here and this,well the Rowan Summer Tweed... reminds me of this color... without a doubt...

Without a doubt, I am certain that it will be beautiful! :) I've used Rowan Summer Tweed before and it is perfect yarn for a spring/summer knit. That Gray color with flecks of blue is gorgeous!

I am certain this yarn you have chosen is more than perfect for the Vest Croisse, it's will be stunning as always. I hope mine will be a pretty as yours.

No need to thank me, just a little gift for someone who is special to me :)

What a fun post! I also love Whitby but agree it might be a bit iffy to wear. On the other hand Veste is certain to be very wearable (and very "you").

Looking at your pictures I can almost smell the salt in the air!

It's doubtful that you could make anything you didn't like in the end. Beautiful words and pictures.

Nora said...

Whitby is indeed beautiful but I think the Veste Croisse will be perfect. And that colour is just divine.

golly what a beautiful colour x

kirsten said...

mmm. that veste croisee is most distracting, isn't it. :)

I have ordered the same Rowan yarn, and I'm also having doubts about Whitby -- too blousey (?) I'm afraid. Love the idea of using the yarn for the Veste Croisse -- great looking pattern.
