Reflections and Ornaments
The sun has been shining this past week nearly every day. After two weeks of clouds from the hurricane, the sun lifted my spirits and made life seem back to normal. I thrive on boring and normal.
As much as I love the time change in the fall, I find it difficult to squeeze in a walk with Frodo before sunset. We walk after dinner and it feels weird to bundle up and walk before I start cooking. Can I tell you the knits I've been wearing this week since it's been a bundling kind of week?
I've finally worn my color affection shawl. I loved knitting it but when it was off the needles I wondered would I like to wear it. I'm here to say that I LOVED wearing it, it was very toasty warm and the best part was the wrong side looked just as beautiful as the right side. I might have to make another one. I've worn my fetching mitts nearly every walk and my wurm hat. Also this week I've worn hand knit socks.
Two days ago I started knitting some ornament stockings. I haven't made a project page as of yet, it's on the to do list. Here is a sneak peek of the wee little stockings. Every time I knit one of these up, it reminds me of my mom, she knit one over 40 years ago. I think of her when I decorate the tree and I also think of the little mouse who bit a tiny hole in it. I invented the pattern based on her ornament and knitting them gives me such joy.
I entered an Ornament Swap over at Christina Lowry Designs. I'm excited to share an ornament but I'm even more excited to receive!! Presents in the mail, how great is that?
Have a lovely weekend :)
