I love to sew, but there's one disadvantage: you are dependent upon a machine. So what to do if you're on holiday? Option 1: bring along all your stuff (sewing machine, fabrics, scissors, unpicker, patterns, sewing thread etc.) or option 2: do something else.
This summer, I went all the way. I brought my faithful Pfaff and even my serger to the campsite, into our cabin. And I absolutely loved being busy in the evenings. But then we went to the southern part of the Netherlands, and there was no room left in our car. So I choose option 2. I brought my needles and yarn along.
A simple stitch, a simple pattern, and a wonderful yarn: Purelife Revive from Rowan. It's made from used garments which are carded and made into new yarn, containing a mixture of recycled silk, cotton and viscose. I love the pink colour, with spickles of other tinges.
|No, this is no me. It's the model from the rowan website, showing the piece, called Spelt, in grey tones.|
It will take some time before the cardigan is finished, but I don't mind. It's not only the result that counts, but also the joy of making.
