I LOVE my knitting. I love the creativity of choosing the project, just the right yarn, the perfect colour and the matching beads if required. I often tweak patterns these days and they feel more like mine if you know what I mean. I've been working on a soothing, repetitive project recently, the lovely Swoon from Juju's Loops. I've made it once already, exactly like the pattern but this time I've made it my own. Instead of wrap stitches I placed tiny beads and for the endings and lace I used feather and fan. I started it on the plane on the way to Paris, whilst I was there and also in Barcelona and on the flight on the way back. It's almost finished, only 1 small piece of lace for one of the sleeves to do. What do you think?
Things are tough at the moment and I need something at the extremely simple, no thinking end of the knitting spectrum so I have cast on this , Boxy by Joji Locatelli in Lavanda, Malabrigo Finito. Shhhhhh, I should have knit that small piece of lace first.
