For my granddaughter

My first grandchild was born five days ago. A little girl! I'm so happy, need I say that?

I was spinning a thread I thought would become part of a yarn for my Certificate in Handspinning. I didn't know what fiber it was, except that my hands said it was Merino and something else. So I asked the dyer, Jon Dunn-Ballam of EasyKnits. Merino-Cashmere he said.

Perfect for a little girl! I changed my mind and Navajo plied to keep the colors for a selfstranding yarn. I like it very much, as I like most of what Jon dyes.

Now I'm planning what to knit from it. A vest? A small cardi? I'll let it wait for a couple of days until it talks to me.

  1. Congratulations Barbro, on the birth of your first grandchild :-) What a lovely way to begin a new year!

  2. Congratulations! What could be nicer than a lovely little baby girl? Aren't you glad that you are retired now? You will need all your time to knit and spin and visit the baby. I can't wait to see what you knit with that pretty yarn.

  3. Yes Jody, it's a lovely way to begin a year :) And yes Nancy, I'm happy! I only wish my son and his family wouldn't live so far away (Stockholm). Far in the aspect of money, not distance.

  4. Congratulations! You were such an enthusiastic knitter and spinner before her birth, I can only imagine what creativity she will inspire. I am so pleased for you all!

    1. Thank you! Knitting a cardigan for her now... :D
