This is my first post in two weeks - glad to be back. Blogging and a number of other things have been on hold due to a tendonitis to my shoulder: no more browsing and typing allowed while breastfeeding. The bad news is that this will considerably limit my contribution to the online knitting and crafting community. The good news is that, weirdly enough, it doesn't stop me from knitting. Pheeewww!
In the past few days, I have finished the two cardigans I was working on. More about these on Friday! The great thing about finishing items is that I can start new ones completely guilt free. So here's what's in my project box now:
The red yarn that wants to jump in your face from this photo comes from my big stash of Caron Simply Soft that I bought on sale during the Christmas time. It is yarn to experiment, but also to play. I started this lovely little cape, Capuchon, for Gabrielle. I thought that since she lives pretty much all the time in a musical or in a play, she would love to be the little red riding hood. It is very simple and relaxing to knit...
In the picture, you might also have recognized the Lett Lopi I used for my Icelandic cardigan. I have a few skeins left and thought I could use some of it to make fingerless gloves. The cardigan is for the girls' godmother, you had requested, a while ago, a pair of such gloves.
I am now debating whether I will also make a hat or a scarf... but might just end up keeping the lovely Lopi to make some gloves for myself!
