Everything is very sad in our family at the moment, as we nurse my brother through terminal cancer. I need to keep myself steady, and knitting helps when I need some calm. This gorgeous pattern includes lace pattern rows, and knit and purl rows, the perfect combination of "focus and relax" - and the delightful variegated Zauberball yarn is a journey in colour. I absolutely love it! I've used the hottag "happyknitter" because it's keeping my spirits up when every day life is stressful.
