I think everyone here is feeling in need of some comfort after last week's earthquake in Christchurch.
Another thing I do in times of needing comfort, is easy knitting...scarves are very good fitting into this category. For the scarf in the photo (the same as the one I made for my daughter-in-law's birthday last month), I used Debbie Bliss Baby Casmerino...so super soft and drapey. It is like giving yourself a warm hug every time you wear it.
and I am also using the same wool in different colours to crochet granny squares for this afghan, a warm comforting thing to do .
Sometime soon I would like to make the scarf featured in this book...showcasing the beautiful designs by all my favourite blogging knitters.
I ordered the book from the UK Depository (free worldwide shipping) and it arrived in less than a week .........a huge comfort !!
