Possibilities

I've once again dug out the beautiful celery green yarn (Donegal Tweed by Tahki Yarns) I bought when this girl was a baby. I purchased enough skeins to create the perfect sweater for myself. I wanted to wait till I lost my baby weight. Then I got pregnant again. Then I used a skein here and there to create baby sweaters for friends.

I've a hankering now to make a sweater (even if I haven't lost the so-called baby weight). I think I like this one...we'll see. I have enough yarn left to do it, once Christmas gifts are all tucked away and ready to give.

For now, I'm winding the skeins into "cakes" under the watchful eye of the little girl who will one day become my apprentice. Oh, the possibilities in a skein of yarn, and in the hands of a child.

  1. Love that pattern! I do the same thing.. whittling down a stash of one thing with a little project here and there til it's gone.

  4. The look on the face of your apprentice takes me back into childhood where so many interests were piqued by actually watching life happen. Reality remains my favorite pastime.

  8. I want a sweater like this one and I want a child like that one, too. Oh I could just lick her face (in a good way/not a creepy way!!). Great colour too.
