Welcome. Come on in. What can I get you to drink? Coffee, tea? Maybe an ice tea?
April has been a whirlwind month. Whole weeks have just disappeared!
I love this yarn. I used Vanna White Glamour in Sapphire. A stunning yarn full of sparkle. It’s hue changed with the light. Everything from a midnight blue almost black next to my black dress to a bright ocean blue in the sunlight.
I think the darker yarn and not taking the time to block it gave my shawl a different look from the original pattern. I do want to try Fortune’s Shawlette again. This corner to corner pattern worked up quickly and I’d love to see it in a different colour.
Then just before Easter when it was time to deliver the Sherbert and Cream blanket. My friend asked for a media pouch to be made. She was giving the blanket to her cousin’s little girl and wanted a gift for another child.
This was the first time I added a zipper to my work. It felt kind of awkward. I think if the occasion arises in future I’ll plan better. I think sewing the zipper in first then finishing the pouch would have been better.
Then it was time to pick up our daughter from university. I just didn’t believe how quickly her first year would go. In September it felt like she’d be away for an eternity. When we got up there to get her she was still sick and no help packing her belongings. Which wouldn’t have been bad expect her room is a city block over and 4 flights of stairs up from the doors.
What was on your hook this month?
