Some time ago, when Rowan Magazine 42 came out, I remember flipping through it and paused when I saw the Faeroe Wrap made out of Rowan Big Wool on page 4:
I remember raising my eyebrow and thinking: “Sure… when you are a supermodel and tall you can pull a design like that off … whoever is actually going to knit this?!?” I rolled my eyes, sighed deeply and proceeded to look at all the other designs.
And everytime I would see the Faeroe Wrap in that magazine, my opion did not change. My word, that thing again. I bet us normal people would look ridiculous in that wrap…
However, a costumer who walked in the yarnshop the other day, proved me terribly wrong.
Weak in the knees
Just a few days ago, while I was explaining to a costumer why you cannot knit bulky yarn with needle size #1, I saw in the corner of my eyes a gorgeous knitwear piece walking by.
I turned my head and there it was… a beautiful black cabled coat that made me hold my breath… I immediately recognized what piece it was:
Dear reader, this beautiful beautiful black Faeroe Wrap, worn so gracefully by its creator or should I say creatress, simply made me weak in the knees…
I am so happy that knitter Daniella agreed to pose for me so that I can show you what great work she delivered. Doesn’t she wear her Faeroe Wrap well?
Bravo, bravo Daniella, well done… and thank you for proven me wrong! Us mortals can look absolutely grand in certain pieces!
What a week
Ah…what a stressful week it was when my husband had that awful kidney stone attack.
Thank you so much my dear knitter friends for your encouraging and comforting words! It really lifted our spirits!
The husband is doing well, and I bet you in a few days, he will be all his usual self again.
Thank you for reading and until the next entry!
