*: (full) moon viewing festival in autumn
Today was a lovely day. Sunny and dry, with the perfect, clear evening sky to look out for the hare in the moon and grab some of those dango (rice balls) he has been preparing for us.
Happy to see you are still there.
It was our first real back to school season and I must say, getting back into daily routines has kept us even more busy than those long holidays.
I thought I would come back earlier but, well... it always takes me longer than expected.
I did make a couple of things which I will show you over the next days. Sewing and knitting always seem to fit in, no matter how busy I might be.
A few days ago I started knitting Harvest Moon, a new pattern by Heidi Kirrmaier. It's so simple and has such lovely, little details... the pockets! The collar...
...which I will adorn with this button:
The yarn I am using (New Alpaca Wool by Naito Shoji) is very dark blue, a colour I am currently LOVING. I hope my cardigan will turn out alright. So far I am enjoying getting to know all those new (to me) techniques, like short row shaping or i-cord edges. It's like taking a knitting class.
Back soon with all those things I made in the meantime!
Take care and do take a moment and look at the moon tonight!
Wishing you clear skies :)
