Gilet Named Greta…

A “Greta” waistcoat is undoubtedly the most popular item in my collection.
Most of them find their loving owners fairly quickly and I receive upbeat messages from Letizia, informing their departures from her boutique, DiGuardo.
I named this gilet as “Greta” because of its discreetly emphasised shoulder detail…

The shoulders are slightly puffed-up like Greta Garbo striking her signature masculine pose…

Image

I just love the fact that a string of yarn can somehow morphs into a solid object, like a simple doodle taking up a 3-D shape…

Image

Through endless trial & error, the optimum numbers of stitch for each row was established. Yet, I can’t still help treating each project as a work in progress…

Image

By the way, the shade of the yarn is strikingly similar to this ancient Instagram-like snap I came across at  the Photographers Gallery the other day…

Apparently, tomorrow will be a crisp and cold day. Will any of my babies find someone’s shoulders to cuddle?…

Nearly Over…

Finally, my cold seems to have reach its final leg.
I still have a fit of cough now and then and my throat is too raw for any prolonged chat. But I can feel that I am definitely on the mend.
Even though Mr.B is 100% healthy, thanks to his annual vaccination, he still loves to snuggle up to my hoodie and chills out. Shamelessly, being in & out of a snoozy land all day long…

Since I am no longer bedridden, my fingers get busy with knitting again…

Image

Shan’t push myself too hard too soon. Yet, feeling a strand of yarn between my fingers is simply pleasurable and highly satisfying…
