with whales and the wild. Water and Ocean is so healing.
I worry about what my true nature really is. Who am I once those erroneous beliefs and false expectations are released?
It is only by the act of stripping away those layers of beliefs and expectations that I will discover my true nature
my own uniqueness and individuality.
In the act of releasing false thought processes, I experience the freedom and joy of being true to myself and comfortable in my own skin.♥
After all, this is still a knitting blog. Knitting is what I do for fun and relaxation. And I did have a couple finished knits to prove it.
Show above is Tuff Love, in my own hand-dyed yarns with Wilton Icing Gels. I went with subtle color contrast and dyed my own not once, twice…but three times due to miscalculation of specific yardage for the Caribbean Blue (variegated teal.) I LOVE the design and will definite knit another pair in better gauge and tension Faye Kennington has beautiful eyes for capturing the nature scenes.
Next is my first ever pair of boot toppers, finished over a week ago. This pair is knitted in worsted weight and Sizes 6 and 8 needles so it knits up quickly. Mine was done in just a few hours.
just in time for a winter storm. I love them…actually wearing them more often upside down as legwarmers. One of these days, I’ll show you a picture of that.
Both designs are by Faye aka UkeeKnits, who lives in beautiful Ucluelet, BC. Both designs were really fun to knit and the instructions are well written. Do you love fair-isle knit? What’s your favorite pattern and stranding technique?
Cascade Winds was awesome this afternoon, again! Thanks, Dan Judd and all the fabulous band members. I can’t wait for the next one in June
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
