Favorite Things: Back to the Yarn Stash!


I’ve returned to my beloved, much-neglected pastimes — knitting and crocheting! I can thank my husband John for the inspiration. My husband is a gifted pen and ink artist who works with beautiful colors. I was able to match yarn to the colors in these two pieces, which hang above our living room sofa:

Midnight on the China Sea, by John G Evans
Faith as Big as Texas, by John G Evans

I’ve been working on throw for the back of the couch with these colors. I’m making randomly-sized squares using stockinette stitch with seed stitch borders. I was surprised that I was able to match the colors so well, especially the yellow.

It’s good to hear the knitting needles clicking again. Definitely one of my favorite sounds!
