Approaching the Weekend

I decided that the only positive way to proceed was to approach the weekend with forward momentum.

So this is how it went:

There was lots of weeding while listening to a new audiobook : This Must Be The Place by Maggie O'Farrell, review here

I cast on a new sweater:  True Friend by Veera Välimäki using lovely lovely yarn from The Wool Kitchen
You should check out her shop on Etsy  - I caught the update on Friday evening at 8pm... woo hoo!

I selected a pretty new cloud of fibre from the stash to start spinning for a new shawl project:  Spindrift by Helen Stewart.

I also signed up for the same designer's Shawl Society:  6 months of new patterns, one a month, promising
  • Close-knit camaraderie
  • Dreaming
  • The particular glow you get from a really good secret :)
I also allowed myself to be seduced by an unexpectedly thrilling new pattern on Ravelry, the P-Rex, even though I have not yet learned how to knit brioche.
Call it aspirational.
P-Rex by Sosu Knits
I reassessed the stash to permit the knitting of said pattern asap...  and I managed the cast on i-cord but the rest will have to wait until after my brioche lesson (4 June!).

So much yarny goodness!


  1. i LOVE that rainbow and navy yarn! off to stalk her etsy shop. and then i am going to google brioche knitting as i have never heard of it. see, you are good for me (learning new stuff) and bad for me (making me shop etsy) in one post!

  2. I love the p-rex its perfect! Do share tips on your class, I'm going to hunt out a knitting class down here - once I've finished my quilt that is.

  3. So many pretty, scrumptious woolly projects! Hope the weekend was a good one and that this upcoming one is good as well :-). Falling under the spell of nostalgia seems understandable, as does the desire to go an entire weekend without doing so. Here's to some yarny delight! Much love to you, Jessica
