march break



It may not be a vacation, but March has certainly been a break from "making". Jay's show is up and the opening over, so life can return to normal now. Sadie's Swing Thing is getting there - slowly - but here is a picture in progress. I've started a sleeve and the Noro is working up quite differently; it's less stripey but still a great combination of colour. And the best surprise of the month is this great Camilla Engman softie called Kola. Friends of ours got her for us as a good luck charm (we're so spoiled!) and the whole family is smitten with her. Sadie danced a jig and Jay moved around old collections to give her a prime spot on the mantle. I think she'll bring me some charm for sure - time to get back to creating!

The swing thing looks beautiful - the colours/stripes look great with that shape knit. Really lovely!

I love the swing thing! Multi-coloured yarn gives it a really nice dynamic. And, as someone who was blessed enough to see Kola in real life the other night, I must say he's a beauty.

That is the most precious dress I have seen in a long long while! Love the colors and stripes! Lucky you to be the recipient of one of Camilla's creations, she does wonderful work :)

Hey Sam: Your swing knit looks amazing- the way the round knitting needles have made the stripes flow! Wow! Kola is adorable!

So that's where Kola lives now! I'm very glad.
