Finished Gifts to Give
Over the weekend not only did I finish two gifts that have been in my knitting bag for a few weeks but I tagged them with their washing instructions, photographed them AND wrapped them up. Ready to give. I believe this gift giving is balm for the soul.
My wurm hat turned out nicely! I only repeated the purl ridge seven times because of the drape of the cotton blend yarn. I prefer knitting with wool but for the recipient who will be undergoing chemo treatments, I thought cotton would be much much more comfortable than wool.
The baby blanket is done and believe it or not, I still have left over yarn in that dye lot. It's like the seven loaves and two fish(es) deal. It just keeps meeting the needs of the many! This yarn is a cotton blend as well and now that it's done, my hands can rest. Cotton can be rough on the hands since it has little give.
My wrist/hand keeps improving and I feel good overall. I just need to slow down and listen more to my body signals. If you know me at all, that is one huge challenge for me.
