A creation for Grandad!

I've started work on my Grandad's birthday pressie - but I can't say much more because he and my Gran sometimes pop in to see the blog and I don't want any surprises spoiled!
gdads yarn
This is the yarn I'm using, and I've been knitting it quite quickly, particularly now I'm past the time consuming initial stage of short row shaping *winks at Michelle and Yin*

I had some hesitation over the colourway to start with, but after talking with my lovely Mum about it, we've decided it's PERFECT! Yay!

Surprisingly (it's certainly not my normal tune) I've been quite low the last couple of days, so I'm trying to take this weekend as a recovery and rejuvenation period, a time to nurture myself and get back to 100%. I'm finding knitting to be a constant companion and a calming quiet time to sit, breathe, create and be still.

I'm sure your Granddad will love it!! The colorway is really nice.

I hope you have a great weekend of rest and nurture yourself!
