knittin' and sangin'

Oh Lordie what would I do without either!
I finished the most delicious Griffin vest for Mr P, who loved it at first sight!
Check out the puddle jumping action!

I am now knitting another Griffin vest for my big high school chicken, who has suddenly been released from the tyranny of black and blue! Free to wear emerald green!! Hooray!
The yarn is Malabrigo Worsted, in a delightful Sapphire Green colourway. This is my "go to" yarn for so many occasions! It's so squishy and comforting to knit with.  (Ravelry notes here)

I am reading Maya Ward's unique book The Comfort of Water about her pilgrimage up the Yarra River from the mouth to the source! It is so rewarding and nourishing to read about my local river (it takes me fifteen minutes to walk there) and her writing is so holistic and evolved. Love!

I'm also researching for some Autumn yarn dyeing! More on that a little later...

Oh! and the sangin'! Been indulging in some three part mountain mama sangin' with two sweet friends, this fair maiden and this fair maiden. What a joy! Shiveringly gorgeous harmonies, so gooood for the soul!

Oh Oh! One more thang: been very much enjoying looking at these lovely "plain jane" creations from Anna Branford.

I'm joining Ginny for her Yarn Along

I completely agree with you about the yarn; it's one of my go tos for knitting baby items.
