I started this piece on Christmas day, when I finally found a moment to myself about 9pm at night. My sister Bre and I love sitting on the big, comfy chairs in my parent’s kitchen. We don’t say much, but we enjoy being in each other’s company. Perhaps this is because, in years past, when we talk, I usually get a little bossy, Breanne usually gets pretty moody and it can create explosive results.
I loved this design. I learned so many new stitches, made a lot of frustrating mistakes that I learned new skills by fixing, and I worked it with a cashmerino fibre, which was devine to touch. I completed most of it on the plane ride back to Vancouver as well. (Yes, they will let you on a plane with knitting needles and no, they will not let you on a plane with a half finished bottle of Baileys…quite the disappointment.)
I forced my work wife Melissa to take some pictures of me with the hat on at during some ‘down time’. Here they are…
