The bobbles are growing, too and they are starting to look better and neater I think. The curling edge is driving me batty, it makes it harder to shift the stitches on the needles and is just a pain in the butt in general. But I so adore the bobbles! All in all I didn't make that much progress knittingwise for two reasons. One: I haven't been knitting as much as usual (I know, call an ambulance!). Two: When I've been knitting, I worked on these little beauties:The pattern is "Autumn Pumpkins" by Jan Lewis. I've actually made three so far. I gave one to Sebastian's mother and the two in the picture made their way to my godmother, who celebrates her birthday this week. Now I will have to make at least two more because my mother wants one, too and I want at least one for myself! They are easy and fun to make but knitting them is extremely hard on my wrists because the gauge better be tight as hell so the stuffing won't show through. But still, fun to make!
I even have a book to show this week, yay me! It's "Meditation des Lichts" - "Meditation of Light" by Leonardo Boff. Sebastian's mother gave it to me for Easter this year but apart from flipping through I just kept it on the "to read"-pile so far. I haven't read much yet but I kind of like it. It deals with methods and techniques for meditation of the highest light that are suitable even for everyday life. A how-to on filling up on divine energy of light so to say. I've always had trouble with meditating, not being able to focus and getting my mind to shut up and be quiet. I'm often so anxious and antsy, a bit of meditating and calming the mind would be so great. I've picked up on Yoga and it has helped me a lot, especially when it comes to getting some sleep. But I still have to work on surpressing or outletting (is that even a verb??) the constant buzz of thoughts.
