When I was in Germany last week, I treated myself to a bunch of yarn. Now the first sleeve of my Maxwell Cardigan is already done. Never mind the other unfinished projects piling up, I’m knitting for myself – Kaya and the husband are equally unappreciative of handknits these days, and the baby is happy in his brother’s hand-me-downs (see below).
I thought I was going for something different with this purply grey – until the next time I wore this shawl and realised the colours are pretty much the same. Oh well. They are just too nice.
I was reading the third book in the Game of Thrones series while we were away, and promptly left it a my mum’s house. I took the fourth one… Hmm. So now I am waiting for a parcel with all those forgotten bits and bobs to carry on!
