Colour and light

Ooo something to cheer me lovely, talented sister has just posted these photos of my Christmas present. It is a Fair Isle scarf in production and I am so excited about it. She is making it from King Cole pure merino DK yarn. I have used this myself previously and love it. She assures me that the colours are nicer in real life but I think it looks gorgeous anyway. It is lovely to get hand made gifts. I really appreciate that someone has taken the time and trouble to make something just for me.....

I am busy making progress with the zig-zag blanket. I did consider ripping it out but am so pleased I have continued with it. That is the thing about these striped blankets...they don't really 'blossom' until you are quite a way on with it. I think it is starting to look quite lovely now! I hope my mum thinks so as it is for her.

And yes.....started another granny stripe too!!!!!! This one is for me, I think!

Depression is a hard place and those who suffer from it need to find little things that bring colour and light into a dark world. My stripes, my friends and especially my boy and my sister bring those. xxx
