Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part,
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.
Charles G. Stater
This summer I visited a spinning mill called Solkusten (sunshine coast). I bought one skein of gray wool from the farm’s own sheep and a pattern for a knitted cap, knitted in the round.
I am pleased by the fact that I only bought one skein, that I now have used that skein and produced something useful. I use this every day right now, because it’s still freezing cold in Sweden. It will be a while until the snow piles melts and the icy patches, in some places very thick, disappears. I long for that day right now, I’m so through with winter.
But until then, I really like how my knitted cap turned out, with the ombre colour and the soft fleece.
