Adam was shy so the kids sit a bit of distance away and came to join me once in a while to watch us knitting...
It was a good day indeed..
I get to wear one of my knitting projects I just finished which I'm very happy about..the Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi shawl.
This one is going to be an heirloom... and trust me it looks complicated but it's not. At all...So easy, and yet so beautiful! if you have a copy of the Knitter Almanac you must make one. I'd love to make another one, maybe in a silky laceweight..
I used natural Shetland wool (fingering weight, colour Katmollet) for this one and it is just lovely...Shetland sheep comes in a variety of colours (which is how fair isle began back then before colour dyes were available) and this is one of them.
Held together at the front simply with a crocheted flower (I crocheted a safety pin into the back of the flower) it makes a lovely wrap on a breezy summer(-ish) day.
this is one project I'm very satisfied about..I can imagine it being beautiful as a new baby's blanket, or as a decoration for the home and it'll make a gorgeous photo prop too..
Adam on that day learnt a new skill - scootering! bought that same day from Camden Market, when we got to the park he was a bit reluctant to try to learn it because every other kid around the park was using it fast and he didn't get the balance right yet..after some trials and error..he finally got the hang of it.
He said, "Yes! I got it now!". Him and the scooter has been inseparable since.
