Thank you, Rose, for inspiring me to start a Guernsey Wrap. This Jared Flood pattern is perfect for winter break: cozy and rhythmic.
Shelter, which the pattern calls for. I like it, but I'm thinking it might be nicer in the lighter wool. Oh well, I might have to make a second one!
Confession: I am not very good at "reading' my knitting. I read about how other knitters can memorize lace patterns and then knit by watching the pattern emerge. Not me. I need to check the pattern every row or two. I think this might be related to my lifelong struggle with math.
Reading a pattern all the time can be tedious and time consuming. A few weeks ago, while I was shopping for embroidery supplies, I noticed these magnetic pattern boards and wondered if these might speed up pattern reading.
As for reading, I started a book that has long been on my list, Life Drawing, by Robin Black.
I have a very quiet break planned and it is just what I need after a tough fall at school. Informal gatherings with friends, family time with my parents and kids, and lots of arts and crafts. What could be better?
Wishing a wonderful holiday to my blog friends. Do know that I treasure each and every one of you. Reading your blogs and your comments is one of my favorite activities. Thank you for being part of my life!
