On what felt like the 5.673th attempt I finished my first tea leaves cardigan.
Photographed by our daughter, thanks to who, even the dressing process has been documented! As well as everything else, of course. Lovely.
The yarn has been waiting in the cupboard for about 15 (fifteen!) years. I had received it from a friend's mother, god rest her soul, who used to have sheep. I never used it, because the hue is sort of yellowish and I never had a project that would be quite fit. Now I am very happy with the result as well as with the process thinking a lot of times past and times to come while knitting.
(Short sleeves, because I thought I might not have enough yarn, being wrong but happy with the look of it.)
I have finally been able to finish the piece on a trip to my native town, kids having a great time with friends and family. Rummaging around in my childhood cupboards, we found this old collection of Grimm Stories which, appearently, I received from my grandmother for my third birthday.
If you know, how much I love Fairy Tales, you can imagine how I am enjoying this find with the kids.
Tales of old, family memories, family history we write. Exciting.
Joining Ginny today, curious about all the (creative) stories you've been writing.
