Knit related injury! and Art...
Bananadreaming arrived from Australia. Our new huge aboriginal painting. Framing first! My thumbs are sore. It is pinching the 3 stiches in the cables (6 stiches) for the heavy St Brigid .Grr.... so Im not into anything heavy. It hurts. Crochet? At least I can plan. That is how I fall asleep after my mind is going circles around my research paper. A nice yarn to pet. Like this little beauty. A rarity, from Sue. Im still thinking how to do some great soft unmentionables. Ok, Im knitting socks for mummy dearest. Nice and warm Yarn Patons, Jet - will not be enought -which requires creativity. Sue - who send me these blue jewels, are getting a Lopi Cardigan. Im just in that scary STEEKING moment. But every time I put up the fight with the sewing machine, I hope it gets better. So brim and collar to knit - which is a piece of cake if my thumbs did not complain. So I started yet another knit. Solsilke Schappesilk camisole from Poetry of Stitches. Norweigan knitting master at work. (the author!- Solveig Hisdahl!) It goes smooth. Maybe this could also be a camisole? I think that pattern is great as a starter for much innovation. Also giving heavy glances on this little yarn. 4 balls of Silk garden lite. Now. Is that a camisole or what? No, no lace shawl. Im on anti shawl for the moment. I need more clothes! Summer like - easy to wear and combine, and great! And there are so many patterns. Just time. So maybe a vest? a Lace vest? Hmm... Inspiration! My inner eye says....I got it. V. that is cool, like Jade Starmores complicated . Same shape. Knit three together in the middle, and adding in the sides. Or...Maybe this is the yoke of a great sweater. To combine with......? No, Im trying to finish some of my UFO's. But it is so fun, I keep starting new stuff. 3 socks in the making, and tons of sweaters. My thumbs. sigh.....Well, I wish I had some yarn in these last paintings wonderful colours - from my dear brother - the famous artist Johan Mauritzson. That would be a great sweater. Where is my yellow? Ahh.. cure me quick!
