Thank you very much for the compliments on my Muslim socks, I miss them already and I'm thinking about knitting a pair for myself. ^^ But maybe further into the Autumn because right now it's been very hot in Poland and I had some problems with finishing the wool socks - they've been literary biting my hands in this temperatures! (just like the mohair Ella shawl last July. ^^)
You know what they say: if you have a dream you should say it out loud, so the Universe can hear it clearly and then all the good forces will unite to help you fulfill this dream. ^^
So without further ado, here is my dream (Universe, listen carefully!):
I want to live in Scandinavia, Sweden preferably (maybe I say so because I've been there several times and got to know it best, but Norway and Denmark are also cool!). I'm not happy where I am now, for many reasons, and I just feel that I would fit perfectly further up North.
If there is a place there for one IT administrator and one fiber&textile artist, Universe - book it for us, please!
Last night me and my friend Kate decided to have a mehendi night ^^, so I painted our hands with henna paste - I love this type of ornamenting the body and it's in a way more fun that the tattoo - it's not permanent, it only lasts up to about three weeks, so you can change the patterns! *^v^*
Kate had different patterns on both sides of her right hand.
Then I painted a pattern on my left hand, too, and we wrapped our hands in tissues and foil, and left them like that overnight so the henna paint could do the job. ^^
My hand this morning, after I've removed the dried henna powder.
Now, about my knitting plans:
Unfortunately I missed the sign ups deadline for the Summer of Socks KAL (they even have the Flickr group), but I feel that after the Muslim socks I caught the sock bug *^v^* and this Summer will be full of socks for me, so I decided to knit along with all the other participants and I've cast on today for a pair of Breeze (Summer Knitty).
I'm experimenting here a bit because I'm using cotton of unknown gauge, but these are small socks so I believe I'll be able to frog it and make any changes quickly. I'm also very curious about the potential of this cotton yarn as a sock yarn. We'll see the first results soon! *^v^*
