The yarn I’m using is lovely and soft, Socrates brand, and I’m using 2 strands.
Readers know I like to read while I knit.
I have just finished a splendid book. The Emigrants by Vilhelm Moberg. Originally written in Swedish and published in 1949. What a wonderful evocation of the emigrating experiences of a group of Europeans in the 1850’s. They made up their minds, for various reasons, to emigrate from Sweden and make a new life for themselves far across the sea in America. At the conclusion of this book, Volume I of a planned trilogy which turned into 4 volumes, they have at last reached the shores of America, New York, after a perilous voyage across the North Atlantic. And this was before the days of steam so they were all cramped together in a sailing vessel. These people many of whom had never even seen the sea before. I look forward to Volume II, Unto A Good Land.
And I am considering my next knitting project after I finish Ian’s sweater.
