hello friend

Monday, April 04, 2022

 Well, hello friend!  It's been a while.  

What an interesting first quarter it has been.  Not only for the world but for myself personally.

If you follow me on Instagram or watch my YouTube channel you will know that I broke my wrist while skiing at the end of January.  10 days later, on February 4th I had surgery.  Everything went well, however, because of the way my wrist was broken,  I was not allowed to use my fingers for the next 5 weeks.  No typing, no knitting.  

So, knitting did not happen and this space became a little dusty. 
I am over the moon happy that I am able to knit again.  It was a little slow going but things are almost back to normal in my knitting world.  Full movement will take some time, but I am thrilled that I can knit. 
As I dreamt of knitting, I dreamt of what my wardrobe needed.  
A vest?  Definitely.
So, I made a simple vest!  Every time I picked up this project I greeted it by saying "hello friend".  It was as if I was being acquainted with an old friend.  And it felt soothing and wonderful. 

Pattern: Hello Friend Vest  (My own... I am going to try to write up the pattern.)
Yarn:  Brooklyn Tweed Dapple.  This light as a feather yarn is the perfect blend of wool and cotton for this type of garment.
Needle:  US 7
