Recuperating from major surgery affords one a lot of time to think and dream. In between the bouts of discomfort and the fog of pain meds, ideas drift through my hopeful head.
Shawls and capelets to knit and crochet, drawings and paintings of knitterly things seem to waft through the air as I convalesce.
I’ve taken to sketching them all down in my journal…who knows which ones might become reality one day?
I’m nearly finished with my second Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl! Only a few more rows of this spectacular lime green and I’ll show you the result. This one, however, is not a magic cake of leftover sock yarns, like the pattern calls for and which I made last time. I simply chose a ball of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn, which stripes the yummy colors on its own. I have a few other variations to Paula Emmons-Fuessle’s wonderful pattern that I’d like to try. It’s one of those super patterns that inspires many variations…you’re getting so much for the price of the one pattern.
I’m also nearing the end of the European Pillow Sham crochet covers. I’ll share this with you as well.
However, these dreamy yarn ideas are begging to have a go and it may need to be sooner rather than later!
We shall see.
In the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming…
