Hi, my dear readers ♥
In September Sylvia Bo Bilvia alias Softsweater released a new knitting pattern with a great idea. I don´t know it this happens to everyone of you too, but I have some events, thoughts, words, whole coversations or maybe just a smell or taste connected with clothing I wore in that time. (how weird is it?) And it´s the same with things I create, when I start making something and I am in some kind of specific mood I always remember it when I wear it or look at it. For example my knitted infinity scarf from last year - I finished it after an argument with my mother on the second day of Christmas and I was so damn angry that we had to be in fight even on Christmas because of such a stupid thing like facebook that now everytime I wear this scarf I remember it and it makes me a bit angry again =D
When you purchase the pattern you will read that Silvia had a similar connection of emotions to the progress of making this pattern and decided to make an advantage of it !
"Your assignment if you choose to take it on, is to take little notes while you knit
this, mark down any important things that are happening in your world. If you chose to
gift the finished piece write it into a little note for the person you’re gifting it to, if you’re
keeping it for yourself, you could write yourself a little postcard with all your notes on it.
It’s all about inspiring your creativity and also about being present with your thoughts and
experiences in the moment. It’s super lovely and rewarding and even if you don’t choose
to write them down, I bet you’ll walk away thinking about this concept a little bit while you
find yourself knitting."
I fell in love with this idea, so even though I had a sweater to finish and tons of Christams gifts to knit before me, I picked up a yarn from my stash and started with knitting and taking notes at the same time ♪
And here´s the result !
I used circular needles n.5 and two skeins of Cilka from Vlnika
And my notes ♥
I like this scarf so much !
It looks great, the light-grey matches with everything and it´s so comfortable ♥
I´m in such a knitting rush lately =D
My stash is full of beautiful handspun yarns from Hana Paimen Yarns and I have project for each
I just can´t wait to start working on them ! But first - I need to finish Christmas gifts =D
(but to tell the truth, I´m cheating - I already finished a scarf and today I will finish a pair of fingerless gloves for me, because I JUST HAD TO)
And what´s on your needles/crochet hooks ?
If your´re not yarn-addict, then what´s your biggest hobby right now?
I really wish I have more time for reading and playing games on PC and PS3 AND PS4, but for that I would desperately need a day to have at least 50 hours and never get tired =D
THERE´S SO MUCH TO DO
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
