I have turned into a knitting machine in the last couple of weeks. I am knitting gifts (shawls) for my family overseas. I have an uncle going there in July and he will take them for me. I thought I had plenty of time till I found out he's coming to visit his daughter in town for father's day and that was a great opportunity to give it to him personally instead of mailing it out of town. So I have been aiming for 6 shawls in total..but I think I can only do 4-5 realistically.
One thing I have learned is self-disciplined through all of this. I keep telling myself " Alice get knitting !! " I have discovered an appreciation of hard work. Knitting is a craft that takes a lot hours and dedication to do good work.
I can show you one of the completed I just finished. As well I wanted to share this really excellent article I just read. You are not impressing me.
These pictures are of Thunderstorm Cladonia. Love this one..I'll have to make for myself.
I will share more when I have more time and everything is finished.
See you soon,
