When life gives you lemon…

This week has been trying, on the family front! My husband was admitted in the acute care unit of our local hospital after spending an afternoon monitored in A&E… Long story short, he had a very resistant cellulitis, and after he was discharged we had to go back for new antibiotics… hoping it will work this time.

All this means I had looooooots of time to knit on a chair by his side, and I really worked on my Breathing Space jumper (here… Absolutely stunning pattern!!!).

I initially used the coral yarn to knit a Pie are Square shawl following Elizabeth Zimmerman recipe, but I found the yarn to be too thick for this kind of project. I will try to use lace instead… Watch this space!

On the other hand, I have been busy dyeing yarn, inspired by the beautiful Spring meadows in the Alps… All the colours!!! I wish I was back!

Do you knit when you are stressed out too?
