If I had to go out everyday I would have a much different outlook on snow. But since I don't...I like it. I enjoy being holed up with lots of tea and knitting. My girls have also taken to knitting these days. I asked my husband last night, "What did I do all winter before knitting?"
I answered my own question. I read. I mean, I read more. I still read. I read quite a bit in fact. I always stayed up a bit too late reading. Now I stay up a bit too late knitting.
I don't exactly NEED more warm clothes. It's certainly not a necessity to knit these days. It's fun, it's relaxing and it feels good in cold weather to cozy up with a pot of home brewed chai and some nice soft yarn.
Here's my latest, a lacy shawl. I had to keep breaking the yarn and making little balls to knit with to get the colors exactly where I wanted them. It worked out and I'm happy with it.
I'm also happy with the brand new/made in London burgundy leather skirt I thrifted this week. Just right with the new shawl.
I had to give you a little peek of my Shirley Temple doll this week as a tribute to her.
