The baby wants a wee bit more inside, that's fine! We are having a relaxed long weekend (in NZ Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays, yay). The autumn light and colors paint everything in a golden haze, fabulous. Yesterday I finished a 'funky' cardi for Lievie, made it in just two days - after my own design (just fidgeting around really). I think things don't always need to be straight! Made it from one of my favorite NZ yarns : 12 ply Touch mohair - in one of my favorite colors : chartreuse (you know that yellowish greenish kiwi inside with mustardy effervescence sort of...). It was fast on the 6mm needles, supersoft - I only had one 100 gram skein, but it worked out wonderfully well and it is exactly the same color as a linen dress I made some time ago for Lieve. And she loves wearing it - she wore it to Cornwell park this afternoon - we -just the three of us- had a stroll and a cuddle.
Happy Easter all (enjoy the chocolate eggs!!!), perhaps we'll have our little chick after the long weekend.
