I have been playing on Instagram.
Being sick did highlight I need more balance in my life and I need to S L O W down. Craft work and gardening are my soul restorers and I have not been doing enough of either with the naturopathy study load.
Abbey found me the perfect wool and pattern to knit myself a shawl. I've been reluctant to knit shawls as in my head they are for grandmas. Abbey found me a pattern I really can see myself wearing in autumn and winter walking the dogs and on cold nights of dog training.
The colour matches Louie the Doberman perfect don't yea think.
We will be matchy matchy GIGGLE.
It is more a scarf than a shawl and does not have a pointy edge (which reminds me of a how a cowboy wears their scarf). Instead it has a round edge.
The wool is from Scotland from Old Maiden Aunt Yarns. In colour way far darrig which is a Scottish sidhe (fairy folk)
Abbey caked the yarn for me.
And I've casted on my Beltane Shawl.
In the evenings while the boys are in the barn tinkering on their cars and trucks Abbey and I sit and do some knitting while watching a podcast. Above are two podcasters we have enjoyed. Anna Knitter is a primary school teacher in Austria and she teaches a German word to learn at each video.
Katie from Lavender & Leeks is from England and she podcasts about her allotment. Here in New Zealand we really take our land space for granted and there is no such things as allotments.
