Here is a pair of knitting masterpieces (and my photo is nowhere near doing them justice, I know) made by my friend Rose, for the two delighted little recipients who are currently wearing them with great pleasure. The jumpers are knitted of lovely soft wool and are a treat to touch as well as to look at.
In the meanwhile we, although still lamenting the lack of time to learn to knit properly, haven't been idle either. I've had a crochet project going on for a while, and in the past few days I'm also recycling some yarn which was used in projects that were less than a smashing success. Shira expressed the desire to learn to crochet, so today we sat down for our first lesson... which wasn't a smashing success either, but it's a start.
I remember, long before I knew how to hold the knitting/crochet needles, my Grandma used to ask me to make balls of yarn for her. We would sit cosily, she knitting, me making those satisfyingly soft balls of yarn. I was very little, and so proud to have something useful to do.
It's a rainy day today, so we were forced to dispense with our usual walk, in favor of quiet pursuits here around the house... much to my liking. :o) I hope you all are having a wonderful day as well!
