For the past few days, it has been very very windy at the sea. The lifeguard has put out the red and black flags out, but also the purple flag as a warning for jelly fish!
No doubt that these beautiful colored creatures from the sea are etherically gracious in their element, but laying there in the sand they looked so akwardly out of place… nonetheless, still beautiful.
I spotted a lady examining these beautiful creatures too and it struck me how similar the colors of her kite was to the color of the jelly fish:
Lately, I am very taken by Louisa Harding’s designs and yarns. I therefore took one of her latest books, called Venezia, Una Volta with me and am now working on one of her hat designs called “Portia” and I am using her yarn called “Grace” a yummy merino and silk blend.
This beret is, pleasantly surprising to me, not knitted in the round. At first I had a bit of a hard time with the lace pattern because I was not able to fully comprehend the lay out of it and besides that, I did not enjoy the “rythm” of this lace pattern too much. I really had to concentrate and my poor husband would get an ear full whenever he tried to get my attention.
Thanks to his understanding, I was able to work on Portia without being disturbed and I am halfway through! I expect to finish tomorrow.
I told you I got my mojo back…
Thanks for reading and untill the next entry!
