"Sweden?" I hear you ask. Yes, indeed! The borders were opened at the end of July so we rapidly organised flights to catch up with our daughter and son-in-law and meet our gorgeous new grandson, now 10 months old. And yes, he truly is gorgeous and I am, of course, only marginally biased about that! If you would like to see a photo of him from back in January, please click here.
I have also been enjoying knitting along with Anna and seeing her future projects taking shape. There's nothing quite like knitting with your daughter to bring a sense of normality back into the world. I hope everyone else reading this can enjoy similar moments with their families very soon.
The pattern also includes a lovely draping wrap to complete an evening ensemble. I have to say I really love using the wrap. It is a perfect weight – warm enough to take the edge off a cool evening outside, yet with a soft silky drape that adds a special touch to any outfit.
I worked the wrap shown here in a lovely dusky blue bamboo/merino yarn, but it would also look gorgeous in other colours. I could imagine this in a stunning white for a summer bridal party, or in a pale apricot to accent a holiday outfit.
Looking ahead to the winter too, I could see the scarves in a deep red colour or stunning Midnight Blue to drape under the lapels of a jacket for a holiday gathering.
Until next time – Happy knitting!
