WHEN LIFE IS WHIRLING AROUND YOU ...



When you find that life is
whirling around you, and you
don't quite know which way to turn
...this is what you do!


You first find a comfy place to relax ....



Then you pour yourself a nice cuppa tea....
and then .....




You KNIT!





Darling Daughter picked this out on one of her visits.
This is what I'm working on while taking a break from the world!
This pattern calls for Noro 'Silk Garden' sock yarn.
I'm using color #S84.
There is a wonderful selection of Noro Yarn here

It's a super cute shrug ....




From this new Noro yarn pattern book. The patterns are absolutely adorable. Darling Daughter also picked out a few more items she wanted from this book. The next one I'll be working on is....


....this adorable jacket. It's made with a new Noro Yarn called "Taiyo". A cotton blend version of Silk Garden that's also self-striping like Kureyon.

I'm hoping that a few hours of quiet time will slow the world down for me just a bit ...and make me feel a whole lot better!

Lucky daughter to be able to order custom knits:>) Cute stuff, and the cream mug is pretty. I have just begun doing some simple crochet projects, it really is relaxing.
