A Star Is Born

A raglan sweater is on my needles. One sleeve is half done.
A Norwegian quote by Henrik Wergeland tells us not to complain about missing spots of light under the stars. It may apply to life right now. 

Some do not see any light - everything is fear, darknes, loneliness and hopelessness. It is hard to see any tiny spots of light when the rest of the world seems dark. 

But if we allow the darkness to consume us, we put on the darkest of glasses.

I love Easter. It is a celebration and also a time to pray and give thanks. Giving thanks for those tiny or big spots of light I can find every single day.

The Horisont scarf is a spot of light.
I addition I knit as much as I can. It is not much - but who cares? I do what I manage and that is more than enough. 

And of course I eat as much marzipan eggs possible without having to buy a new wardrobe. LOL!

Right now I am knitting a sweater. It is a highly modified pattern in which I have added a stranded pattern. 

I am very excited to think that I maybe are wearing it this year. At least it is finished before the next winter. 

In between I knit a scarf in garter stitch that is really easy and not that hard on my shoulders and hands. 

That is another spot of light. Just as hearing the birds, seeing nature coming to life and see the love in other peoples eyes. 

Anyway, the scarf is called Horisont and I use Kauni in rainbow color in addition to a feather light mohair in turquoise. 

I wish you spots of light. I wish you a happy Easter. I wish you marzipan eggs. May you be blessed.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite of all the darknes
