I was knitting for hours yesterday, but have nothing to show for it, well, nothing interesting. I was looking for a pattern for a gift I'm going to knit with this cashmere yarn. You can not describe it's softness, it's unbelievable! (Artyarns cashmere5, color # 247, 100% 5-stranded cashmere, 50 gr -102 yds). I got overwhelmed while I was looking through all my pattern books. There are so many wonderful ones, which I would like to try out sometime and I thought, that I will not be able to make all that I want to do in my lifetime! I've knit several swatches but nothing was right for this purpose, even though I liked the patterns, they were just not right. Well, you guessed it, in the end I found one which was acceptable at last. I had something else in mind but it just didn't work out. I can't show pictures of it just now, because it will be a gift. I've never knit with pure cashmere before and I guess I never will (sooo expensive!).
Yesterday was not my day. Outside, it was raining on and off, my mood was not so sunny either and I was knitting with grey yarn. But there's one thing which will cheer me up for sure, looking at doggy pictures.
Here's one which I LOVE, naturally it's Sammy when he was a few weeks old.
A funny note on the side: I was using spell check and it wanted to replace "Artyarns" with "earthworm"! Ha!
