The work with the little blanket continues...
So far, I am happy with the yarn, it does not split. I am happy with the hook size, I think it is perfect. I am happy with how long one circle takes, it is just right, not too quick to feel rushed but not too slow either, I feel that the work is progressing. I am happy with the colors, they are bright but they don't feel pushy - at least not yet. The work is easy to pick up and then again lay aside when something else needs to be done.
I block every little circle before I continue with the last two border rows. This way they are easy to handle and the tendency to curl disappears. I don't stretch the pieces at all, just lay them flat and attach them with a few pins.
Last night I was standing down by the lake enjoying the warm weather and calm night. It was almost 10pm, very peaceful and light. There is nothing happening in the video (taken with phone), just plain, quiet evening but I find joy in this scenery and I love this bare land. I am not good at taking any kind of video (it is even tilted a little bit), but thought about you when enjoying the very first warm evening of this season. The water is very high and you could spot occasional ice drifting here and there and you can hear bird song. The ground is cold, but it is recovering from the winter. And I know that on the other side of the lake, there are all kinds of creatures enjoying this warm weather too.
Summer at the Arctic Circle.
Wool with you,
