March in Connecticut will perhaps always be the coldest,
but April is the cruellest.
Why do I attach myself to what is fleeting and ephemeral?
For the most fiery ideas only cause struggle and suffering.
But is suffering harmful in the least?
In 100 years, I’ll be gone. And in my old age, I won’t have any good memories of my childhood and adolescence. I don’t know exactly what I’ll remember of it.
I’ve realized that I haven’t lived, really.
I need to do something about that.
Pattern: Bowtie Scarf [ravelry link]
Yarn: Aslan Trends Invernal in indigo, approx 150 yds (.5 skein)
Needles: Size 8 straight needles
For my mother for her birthday. Very soft yarn. I like it; I hope she does too.
Pattern: Coraline, by Ysolda. good pattern, but Ysolda obviously took the yoke pattern from another blog without crediting her.
Yarn: Aslan Trends Invernal in indigo, approx 900 yards, that is, 3 skeins and a little bit more
Needles: Size 4 (3.5 mm) dpns for sleeves, size 6 (4 mm) circular needles for the body and yoke
Very pretty cardigan. I get quite a few compliments on it. It’s different from anything you would find in a store, which is excellent. Also, the yarn is GREAT. It is very soft (being an angora blend) and the color is rather perfect.
I just won a blog contest?
Haha, I never win anything. This is strange.
This time it wasn’t based on chance. I had to write a story. My story turned to be a bit sad, and yet emotionally detached with a child-like innocence. And it won, strangely enough..
And thus, I won a few skeins of yarn. The non-knitter will not understand my glee over the prize.
