more odd balls...

found these odd balls
of bulky yarn
in my stash...

 

the purple is lambswool...the other is a crazy thick/thin ball of several fibers which seems to have a self-striping quality...

lord knows where they came from

what to do with these odd balls?

make a HAT of course!


this one is striped horizontally,
with a seed stitch border,
and vertical stripes at the crown...


and to celebrate the beginning of a 
new year
I will share the "recipe"
with you tomorrow...

knit on...



dear fellow knitter...

it has been a year of tragedy, both personal and collective...

but we knit on

we knit through the tears and the unbearable sorrow
we knit through the confusion,  the bewilderment,
and the terrible realization that we'll never understand


we knit on
stitch by painful stitch
knitting, knitting, knitting
until the light glimmers through the gloom
and the darkness fades

we knit on


may your holidays be filled with joy...
may you find peace and harmony...
may you bask in the light that returns, always, every year

and may you find yourself with needles and beautiful yarn

knitting on...

another hat...

working on the pattern...


it should be ready for testing next week...


it is really a quick knit, and the large central cable lends itself to embellishment...perhaps a couple pewter buttons?
