|Chunky yarn and huge needles|
Every year, every summer I hide away in my bolt hole, my security blanket if you will. I sleep better, I breathe the air around me and I craft every day without guilt. I have done this for most years of my life and hope to continue to do this for the rest of them too. It's my annual spa so to speak. Where is this magical crafting clean air breathing space...Norway of course and home with mamma.
|Chunky yarn galore a mix of wool and acrylic|
|Just look at the size of these needles and chunky yarn|
Using the 15 mm circular needles I cast on 44 stitches which was enough to cover one side of my cushion and leave enough to have seam space. It knitted up quickly but I must admit it was a work out on my arms and hands, any bigger a project and I think it would be one of those projects like reading a mammoth book that you have to read others in between. Saying that it was fun and I am delighted with the end result. Its' chunky and soft, what's not to like...
|Before I made it into a cushion, |
I tried it on as a cowl
|Mamma had a spare cushion that |
I used to cover with the chunky yarn

Once completed I had fun putting it in different places around mamma's house. I make no apologies for the abundance of photos to follow...
