It is raining here and it's very very gloomy. I think it's starting to bother me. The best way to chase away the rainy day blues is to talk about yarn. More specifically yarn that I own. The above photo is the luxurious yarn that I won from Twist &Twine yarns. Camilla is so talented with colorways so you must check out her website. I have decided to cast on the Cinnamon Grace shawl. I wanted a very simple knit so that the yarn colorway could shine! That little bit of sparkle helps the shine too :)
I bought these three skeins when I was with my sister last weekend. The yarn is Araucania itata solid. I've knit with this yarn before and I love how it blocks out and the touch of silk is heavenly. I'm thinking of a cardigan right now for this yarn but not sure of the pattern yet. Still thinking.
So today I will be knitting away while the rain continues to fall from the sky.
How do you cope with the rainy day blues?
