The calming influence of yarn...

So, how do you spend the day before The Big Day?




You go shopping...obviously.






Obviously, you need to stock up on yarn because the scarf is finished, pressed and folded in readiness for a drop in temperature - hasn't this weekend been glorious, though?





This scarf was a joy to knit. Lurking in the bottom of the Loop bag are 4 more balls of Rowan Cocoon, this time, Bilberry, (colourway 812) to make one as a Christmas gift for my lovely friend.






All well and good, if I ever have time to knit again...

  1. Good luck, good luck, good luck!!!
    (You won't need it but it will be nice to arrive with lots to spare)

    The scarf is quite beautiful and looks so soft - I think that you will find that for a short while you will not have time to knit but then you will find a new routine and the fingers will start to itch again. You will always find time for things that are important to you.

  7. It seems like a long time since I have visited and so I have spent some time doing a catch up on where you are and your news. Firstly - the scarf is gorgeous... such a lovely colour and the pattern is beautiful. Perfect for those first cold days ahead.

    Congratulations on your studies and good luck... I hope your first week is going well.

    The PYO dahlias are stunning - again the colours are fantastic.

    And the post about your spiritual retreat day was very special. So peaceful and I revisited the story of your son and your journey. Thanks again for sharing so openly.

  11. I hope your first day has been super (or as super as a first day can be!). I'm sure it will seem overwhelming at first, but then as Alice says, you'll settle into a new routine with time to knit! Thinking of you (wearing that gorgeous scarf). K x
