Knitting - My First Alice Starmore
Not that I don't have any books of her nor that I don't like her design.
I love her design. I look for her books in any way possible.
But... well, I'm sort of a coward, sort of a chicken. Looks so complicated and that makes me stall.
One day, I happened to go see Virtual Yarns and found two kids wrapped around Dunadds as if they were vikings.
Wow! I want to knit one, I thought.
And the other day, when I came home late as usual something like 1:30 in the morning (or night?), they were waiting for me. They, awesome skeins of Hebridean 3Ply in Driftwodd colourway.
How can I tell the beauty of the yarn? It looks brown, but it's not; it looks gray, but it's not. And at the same time, it is brown and gray with dusky purple. Colours are so subtle just like a piece of wood left its home island and washed and washed uncoutable times by waves.
And how wonderful you feel when you squeeze one of the skeins. It's just marvelous. I can't resist this yarn.
So, last week, I came home after midnight as usual on weekdays, but I just couldn't leave Dunadd. I just put my sleeping time second to Dunadd.
Well, that did harm me a lot.
I learend a little and I didn't knit it this week until Saturday.
I have a long way to go, but I'm not worrying a bit.
I know I can make it.
Even though it takes me a year or two.
