The sun is hanging lower in the sky and the light that cascades through my living room by late morning is glorious. All my worries about this room being dark and dreary over the winter have been cast aside. Between the sun and the glowing fire, it's the best place to be.
Over the last few weeks I have visited with many friends and family in this space, all the while knitting a few stitches here and there. The solo mitten that had been in my stash f-o-r-e-v-e-r (along with matching hat) got its mate and made their way to my little nephew. Yes, I forgot to take a picture before I packed them up. Speaking of forgetting, or truly just the art of being busy, the beautiful pile of beeswax dipped leaves never made their way to becoming garland. Ahhh, well. Good intentions anyway.
I tried again to capture the green of the living room…. no luck. It insists on being yellow in photographs. I don't blame it really, I love yellow too.
Would you like a peek at my current knitting project? The fisherman sweater for my little guy in Jackie's Spectra. (spice colorway) It's delicious and quick in such a bulky yarn….. perfect for a gal who can only manage a row or two here and there. I just finished the yoke & split the sleeves. Adding a bit of stripes next with those other colors you see. One is a grayish-coco and the other is curry. See, I told you her yarn was delicious….. all food colors!
I'm off to get some sewing done for the fair this weekend! I'll be in New Hampshire here. Over 50 artists with goods priced under $50. It looks like it will be a wonderful event.
See you tomorrow with some link love and Saturday for a giveaway from the shop!
