Seashore Kerchief

Standard

Dear Blog,
Sorry to have been neglecting you. It’s been a busy week. I don’t really like busy weeks that much. I actually had to write on the calendar last Tuesday “Nothing!” to make sure I didn’t schedule something on the only clear day of the week.

And then I had an unavoidable commitment in the evening. Oh well!

The Brick top-down seamless sweater is coming along nicely. Not long until I get to the body ribbing.

While at the farmers market last Saturday, I made a quick extra bag for the stall.

And now I am working on a new project. The yarn was a gift from a friend. She bought it at Unwind Knit and Fibre Lounge in Gibsons, BC. It’s Queensland Collection Pima Lino in Colour 6. That doesn’t tell you anything, but it makes me think of ice cream flavours. Pink, orange, blue, green. 70% linen, 30% cotton. Made in Peru.

I searched for an appropriate one skein project and found the Seashore Kerchief. The edging is very pretty but you have to keep your wits about you and a firm grip on needles and yarn. I put a lifeline in on the first plain row, just in case. I don’t want to have to start from scratch in the event of a disaster.

Ds1 is going out of town for a music festival tomorrow, so today he is treating us to dinner out. As it’s a public holiday (BC Day) we’ve all had a quiet day at home and once my housework was done I started on the kerchief.

There you go, dear Blog, you are up to date.
Love,
Nicola
