It's a quiet, rainy day here today. Right now there's a late loaf of bread in the oven. There's a sky full of grey clouds and a coffee table covered in lego. (And an untimely clothesline full of dripping wet clothes.) There's paper pots waiting on the table, with soil and seeds at the ready. There's three giveaways in the works for next month. There's two napping children. And there is also one finished project, cast off last night.
My first knitted kerchief, 'The Age of Brass and Steam.' It is a fairly simple and quick pattern, as long as you follow the photo tutorial for the garter tab beginning - a technique that was new to me. It has been completed in moments grabbed here and there the past five days. The Madelinetosh yarn has been especially lovely to work with and is soft and warm against the skin. I am a convert for sure.
