Work in progress

This is my current project. When it grows up it'll be a massive afghan with a diamond bobble pattern. I'm making it with a 5.5mm hook & wool blend Aran DK that has flecks of auburn & chestnut in the fibres. It has it's own bag & I'm carrying it everywhere with me. I have no idea what I'll do when it grows. I've no idea how I'll cart it around!

Reconnecting with the sky

The past few months I've been staring at my feet. I've been unable to look up, incapable of seeing the middle distance let alone the horizon. This weekend I spent time watching the clouds mill across the sky & saw the sun sink and paint the clouds with a palette of beautiful hues. I don't ever want to wait that long to see the sky again.
