winding wool

Such a simple activity but so calming. We did this one evening last week when faithwas feeling quite excited and couldn't sleep. We sat on the sofa together, dimmed the lights and wound wool. The quiet and calm together with an activity that has a purpose and the feeling of having genuinly helped all make for a contented child. Faith went right off to sleep afterwards.

This is lovely manos del uraguay 100% merino (this colourway is arctic shadow) which will become a warm winter shawl.

  1. I love the yarn. Your helper was probably much better than mine is. :)(my husband)
