Damson, made in lovely MadelineTosh Merino Light in the "thunderstorm" colorway. The yarn and pattern were a gift in a Christmas exchange among my knitting circle. The knitting of it was more frustrating than a simple pattern like that really had the right to be. I cast on New Year's Day but ripped back at least 3 times before really getting started at the end of January... and then there was the little adventure of running out of yarn for the last 5 rows. I had to substitute some of my homespun in a similar value but with a thick-and-thin texture, so the border edging is not going to lie perfectly flat.
But then, I got rid of my perfectionism years ago or I would no longer be doing handwork at all.
Snow day today. Yes, that's just 2 or 3 inches of snow and the roads were fine, but that's how things go here. It makes a nice background for my photo shoot.
Gumbo Zeb from the freezer, with hot sausage.
The Damson is beautiful... think what the world would miss if no one got over perfectionism!
love your map puzzle find! Bruce also has a great fondness for maps. :-)
