Zooming in…

Ha! And there was me thinking we wouldn’t have any more snow this winter…

Turns out I was wrong.

A Snowflake Fell

February 10, 2013

As you may have guessed from my previous post, my favourite knitting project photographer was in town last week, and of course I had to take advantage of his skills to document all of my crafty doings:

Pattern: Walpole by Hannah Fettig
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed LOFT [colour: Faded Quilt]
Needles: 3.75mm
[More project details on Ravelry]

The project title was inspired by this lovely Christmas song that kept me company while I was working on this pattern:

I bought this lovely yarn back in October at my favourite London yarn shop during a fun weekend outing with my friend [e]. Who could say ‘no’ to those tweedy skeins in such a beautiful grey-ish blue? Certainly not me!

The knitting of this piece contributed a lot to keeping me sane during the last, rather crazy months, and it certainly has reminded me once more of the importance of making for my overall well-being. The cardigan has already been worn abundantly during the last week, and I can report that it is the perfect piece to keep me warm and cozy during those long afternoons in draft-y London libraries!

And since some of my Ravelry-friends already asked: Yes, I got a new haircut! After ten years of sporting a long braid it was definitively time for a change! More about that, and about other stories from my London life in 2012, hopefully soon…
