Last week, I was able to go to a conference in Vancouver where I was able to sit and knit the entire course. It was educational and very relaxing.
When I got home, my partner and I started purging the house. I just want to have only what we need, but to have a clutter free and dust free home. That, and all of our storage boxes are in the exact spot where I want to set up my crafting studio.
While I was gone, I ducked into Michael’s to pick up a set of knitting circulars for my current knitting project. I love the fact these needles don’t have a long cable. Perfect for small projects.
While I was there, I stumbled onto some Caron Cakes that called to me. I normally didn’t like the colorway, but for some reason I had to have these. So I picked up two Red Velvet Caron Cakes. They sat in my car the entire weekend, waiting for me to figure a project out for them.
It didn’t feel right to make something for me with them, so even when I got home Sunday morning, they just sat.
But, alas, the perfect project presented itself. A dear friend is in the hospital, and while I can’t be with her in person, I thought to make a prayer shawl for her. It’s called Say A Little Prayer Shawl, and with this yarn, it’s working up so lovely.
It’s growing quickly, and I’m loving how cozy it is. Hopefully my friend likes it. It’s a nice little project to work on while I’m under the weather, and bedridden for the time being. I can’t believe how peaceful knitting and crocheting makes me.
