What a week! Oh, what a week! I was on my own with A. for two weeks, as hubby is exploring the Orient for work (poor him, I know).
You may remember that I was looking forward to a knitting course at this wonderful little yarn store called Espace Tricot. I’ve never knitted a two-color project, and I felt it was time to learn a new skill. To my delight I saw that they had a colorwork course scheduled and I thought to myself, what better way to spend a snowy March evening than in a cozy little store surrounded by a myriad of colorful yarn, books and all kinds of knitting gadgets, and in the company of fellow knitters intent on acquiring a new skill? So I signed up.
The plan was to photograph the whole experience and tell you all about it. Well, unfortunately, 10 rows into my knitted swatch I got a phone-call from my baby-sitter, that my son was not feeling well and I better rush home. Which of course I did, and it turned out that A. had a pretty bad case of gastro. Now, a week later, he’s recovered and is back to his usual mischief.
So I finished my little swatch at home, and I can say that I now know the basics of Intarsia, but that’s about it. Then again, not bad for an hour, right? I am hoping that soon enough there’ll be another course I can sign up for because there is so much more I want to learn!
