As you know, I'm on vacation this week. Knitting for me is therapy. I get into the pattern, the tactile sensation of the wool, the sound of the needles softly clicking and I just zone out. The tension in my shoulders melts away, the frown lines in my face fade into the background and a smile starts to form on my face. Yep...this is my idea of vacation.
So, this week, I began working on a Ravelry KAL (knit along). I liked the idea of a knit along - it gives me a chance to connect with other knitters and keeps me challenged by making something that I would not normally take the time to knit. I was "struck" (pun intended) by how creative the designer, peargirl, must be. The pattern was challenging but not so difficult that I wanted to throw my hands up and quit. I liked the idea that I could "personalize" the end result by changing the colors to suit the individual that is getting this little hat for the holidays. So, here is the end result.
Thanks peargirl for a wonderful vacation day.
