This past weekend I picked up my embroidery needle for the first time in over a year. It was so nice. I think for me, stitching words with needle and thread brings the same meditative peace that my knitting friends speak of as they loop wool around long wooden needles. My knitting skills are so basic. However, I read through the Shalom pattern the other night and I think it made sense to me! Would you (experienced knitters out there) say it is a good first sweater pattern? I think my love for knitting would flourish if I could just move past scarves and fingerless gloves, you know? They can only be so interesting.
Anyway, much to show you about what this (and other) embroidery pieces are becoming.
(A hint... little pockets of lovely.) See you soon.
