Feel the difference, make the difference.

We can't make it

We cancelled the yarn festival "Handwerkbeurs Ghent"

I am so truly and deeply sorry about this. Because I was really looking forward to seeing our Belgian friends again, to meet new people, and to see other yarnshop friends again.
Events like these aren't just about selling stuff, they're just as much - or even more so - about feeling the connection, sharing the love of crafting, about inspiration and making it happen together.

Still, I have to cancel. Because of personal circumstances.
Usually, this means something very sad. But even though one of the consequences is sad, because I really don't like to cancel the yarn festival, in this case the "personal circumstances" are actually quite happy!
Yup, you're looking at it, the "personal circumstances"...

I am expecting a baby!

Me and Mr Yarnz are over the moon...
Only the temporary downside is that I am feeling sick as a dog and have been for weeks... I had hoped I'd feel better in time for the event, but I don't.
A yarn festival is already a very intense event for "normal" people.
Right now I just can't cope!
Sad, but true. I wish it were otherwise, but I have to take care of myself and my going-to-be-little one...

So it's good news with a sad consequence.
What do we do, be happy or sad?
Can we be both?

My mother-in-law artfully combined the speckled and semi-solid colours of Supertwist DK, using Roxy's Cafe for the body and Smokey Nights for the cabled border, cuffs and collar 💜
She used 800g of yarn. (Unfortunately I do not have the pattern for this sweater.)
