my creative space... the story of twosuh
It began with a quiet house. Just two people, a cat, a long winter and a need to make something for the first belly babe. Huz and I knitted squares each in pinks, purples and blues. We sewed them together to make a blanket with lots of character, made with much love and anticipation. She loved it. Its still her favourite thing, along with the red cardigan knitted by her nanny. She loves it best cold and wet... not something us mere mortals can understand. It needs fixing...
When there was a second belly babe, the house was different, on an island far away and not so quiet. We found the time though, to knit. Different colours this time, greens and blues for our new green and blue home. Huz didn't quite finish. There's a square missing. This twosuh is loved, but not a part of her. What is loved now is the tradition and that we made it. For her.
And now there is a third. I've had the yarn for a while, waiting for the right time to begin. Looking forward to working with the red, navy, grey and cream... I got very close a couple of times. Now the time is right. This week we begin work on the new twosuh.
See what lovely things others are up to at Kirsty's. x
