I’m not promising to make this a regular thing, but I’m going to do an occasional “Things that make me happy” post. Life is busy, messy, and not always much fun. But I don’t have anything (except a messy house, and who’s fault is that?) to complain about. And I don’t mean “things” in a material sense either.
Today I’m starting with this:
That’s enough to make me smile! I love the shawl. I love my jean jacket. And I love the fact that the hat on the manequin matches the outfit. I may never undress this thing. It may just decorate my house, at least until it gets cold here in Minnesota. That may be tomorrow. Who knows?!?
I used 3 skeins of Silk Garden Sock yarn, color 252, on size 6 needles. The pattern is called Langsgalid Barur by Sigridur Halldorsdottir. The book is available from Schoolhouse Press.
This is going to work great with my black pants or a pair of jeans added to the ensemble. I really should find a cute green hat to go with it. (Not!)
You know what else makes me happy? I don’t have to go to a laundromat. Bye!!!
