After finishing Brandon’s birthday sweater this week (yes, I made it in time!!) I picked back up my Koivua. I so enjoy knitting for others, but I do ache to get a few projects done for myself that I actually need in my wardrobe! 🙂 It’s early February but it feels like people are rushing into spring already. I don’t feel like we’ve had a proper winter yet. So I’m hoping I can finish this sweater soon and have opportunity to wear it before spring! 🙂 At the same time, I’m trying to knit mindfully and make it last because it is lovely to work on. The yarn is so squishy. I think rambouillet is one of my favorite fibers to work with!
Also, I’m still reading Fierce Convictions, a biography on the life of Hannah More who was a poet, reformer and abolitionist. I am quite captivated thus far by this extraordinary woman and just getting into the part of the book where she makes acquaintance with John Newton and begins to become more aware of the atrocities of the slave trade.
