Random Joy – About Yarn, Needles And Angels

crocheting

I am so thankful that yarn exists on this planet. What would I do without it? I don’t even want to imagine.

Working with yarn always takes me into a different dimension – a calm one where everything is slow, quiet a peaceful… pure heaven.

These are some of my recent yarn-involving, bliss-inducing experiences…

 

crocheting

Trying a new colorful pattern for a cowl. This was really relaxing.

For the first time in my life, I knitted with short circular needles.

Oh, and by the way, I really enjoyed this short break from crocheting.

Also, I was quite surprised by how smooth and easy it is to work with this kind of needles. They seem to be just the perfect thing for cowls.

Would you like to hear a little secret of mine? Yes? Well… sometimes, just for fun, I spray the skeins of yarn with a few drops of my favorite perfume.

Have I mentioned other dimensions before? Then this takes you even further…

And now for something completely different. Actually, not that much, really…

I have long been an admirer of famous Icelandic knitting and especially their sweaters. As I found out lately, the sweaters are made using long circular needles.

The result?

I looted the nearest craft shop soon after and left the shop people completely bewildered and needle-less.

We are talking investments here… Investments? It is very important! And I like investing. A lot!

My new secret project. I am addicted already. You will see the result soon.

And this is the last thing that I wanted to show you today… It was only recently when I learned that angels like to feast on water that has evaporated near a burning candle.

So if there are any angels near me, which I firmly believe there are, I’d just like them to be well fed… I am also a food blogger, after all…

Have a lovely day!

With love,

Petra

    I love to knit and it is what I mostly do as I have only recently learn’t to crochet.
    So at the moment I seem to be only crocheting!! It is really nice to take a break from one of them so you don’t get bored! Do you find that crochet is much quicker than knitting? And well done, on using circular needles, I struggle with them! Not sure why?

    Loving your blog! X
