One peculiar thing about the Dutch language is that any word can get deformed into a diminutive form. Like huis (house) can become huisje (little house), or spook (ghost), spookje (little ghost). So you can have little giants (reusjes) or even small skyscrapers (wolkenkrabbertjes). 

Anyway spookje was a very nice project. M wanted to have a pullover in KidSilk Haze for the longest time. Her big sister has two sweaters in it and she just loves the fussiness and softness. So it was about time and I wanted to knit Spook ever since the booklet came out…  One of the nicer aspects of KSH is that it is very light and thus feels good for spring-time, but it is also surprisingly warm and very comfortable. It is also much sturdier than it kind of looks like. Like I said, big sister has sweaters in it and they are keeping up so very very well.

This was not a difficult project, but it took a bit of time, I have been a bit under the weather lately.Not enough to not go to work, enough to not do a lot of things at home. I think it is just an end of winter thing and surely it will pass…..
