Two such things happened to me during the past two weeks (at least).
- For one, I knitted a linen vest effortlessly incorporating my own vision of it ( I wanted it longer, less bulk around the neck, some short rows in the back...). I tweaked a pattern I had previously used for a store sample Design 9+10 by Magdalena Neuer from the pamphlet "Lana Grossa Olympia Classic". This is how the store sample vest which I had knitted at the time, looks like:
I am pleased to say that the end result of my new vest knitted in Shibui Linen is just like I envisioned it and I am very pleased and looking forward to wear the vest come Summer.

- The other thing was a total surprise. I woke up Sunday morning to a message that my Facebook page "Knit With Doris/ Discover Your Inner Knitter" was tagged by a post from Titlili's Facebook page "Les reas de Tit'Lili". At closer inspection, I saw that Titlili had translated my Candle Flame Scarf pattern into French! This is a free pattern I had written some years back. This made me very happy; what a spectacular nice thing of her to do!!
