Happy Sunday, loves!
Hello there...how are you? How was your week? Hopefully you are enjoying these Winter months (here in the states, as I know a dear friend in Australia is dealing with sweltering heat). Personally I cannot get enough of the cooler temps and wish they could go on forever- then again the state I live in has Winters that people travel for.
The WIP basket
Rainy beautiful grey days fuels my desire/need to knit. It is all about the cozy knitting for me. There is nothing quite like cuddling with hot tea, a candle and squishy yarn when there is a bit of a chill in the air.
The Arizona Winter weather is 100% responsible for my first FO of 2017. Yay! You may remember this was a hat that I knit up with some lush yarn that was sent my way for review from Baa Ram Ewe. I can say without a doubt that I will be purchasing some more of this butter-like yarn. The bloom of the Blue Faced Leicester, Wensleydale and Masham in this yarn almost jumps off the photo, so you can imagine how it is in "real life".
All the socks!
I know I showed you my WIP basket containing many of the projects that have been on the needles far too long, and keen observers may have noticed there were no socks in there. Well that is probably because I cast on all the socks in January and above is just some of the progress. So do you think I can get all these knits done this month? Yes, you can laugh because even I know that is impossible as I do have a 9-5 and only 2 hands. ;)
How are your projects going? Are you feeling the need to cast on all the things or finish all the things this time of year?
Before leaving you with a song, there is something that I must mention. My heart and spirit were overflowing with all the love you showed to this month's featured indie-dyer, Great Lakes Tweed. You all single-handedly purchased all of the yarn in her shop. Thank you for the generous spirit and love that you show to one another always.
Have the best day today!
