Hi to you! Hi to summer!!
I am writing to you all at the end of a major knitting slump. A truly disappointing time. I didn’t even want to look at my knitting. But I’m back with my heart in the craft again and it feels great! Distance does make the heart grow fonder.
I was feeling so uninspired by all my projects I just didn’t know what to do. But then I had an idea – what if I used some super precious yarn and made something I’ve had in my queue for ages? It worked! I decided on finally casting on Henslowe, which has been in my queue for TWO AND A HALF YEARS and gifted to me by Christelle. Time to check this baby off my list. And for yarn (which was actually my starting point) I chose two skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft I’d been hoarding for over a year and a half. I have a bad habit of not using project materials I’m obsessed with.
This is the Sap colorway and it is such a perfect description of this color! Bright, golden, earthy greens, but still slightly muddy. It’s wonderful. Ever time I’ve knit with Brooklyn Tweed yarns it just makes me fall in love with knitting all over again. I’ve been pretty much knitting monogamously on this shawl ever since I started, I can’t put it down. The BT yarns are in my top three yarn brands, perhaps even #1.
There are some socks going too. Duh.
I’m liking these more than I thought I would – I was a little hesitant about the angora in the yarn but it makes for the fluffiest warm cloud of a sock! More info on these here.
There’s also these socks, which are, hello, the most wonderful socks… more info here.
Well I’m off to tuck my kiddos in bed and get back to my Henslowe… <3
