I'm way behind in posting, Mara was cast on and off beginning of January just before I broke my finger.
The yarn is delicious, the colourway is one of my favourites.
Love my grays either darkly saturated or light and fresh.
Very simple pattern and a pleasure to knit.
This shawl is going to see a lot of wear. It's an accessory that can easily be dressed up or down.
Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I love the colour, the produce and especially wearing sweaters and boots. I'm a boot gal and newly shod too! My well worn, comfy barn and hiking boots have seen better days. These are my brand spanking new ones.
Love. Me. Some. Great. Boots! Definitely not office or going out wear, but for outdoors, I'm most comfortable in something solid and warm. They're "Lowa" brand and extremely comfortable. I can feel a sock knitting spree coming on...
My funky boots are "Bogs". They come in various heights and styles. The colours and patterns range from plain black to all sorts of flowers and designs, are rated to -65 degrees and truth be told - there's never been a more comfortable rubber lined boot. They take rain/winter boots to a whole new level with neoprene uppers and handles for easy on and off.
Been doing a lot of painting in the house fall makes me feel nesty and creative. My favourite blog to fuel my reno mojo is Kevin and Layla Palmer's The Lettered Cottage. Fall is also when I drink tea non-stop. Visit Claudia at Mr Puffy's Knitting Blog for great info about tea. Thanks Claudia, you've upped my tea learning and pleasure. I never thought to use a French Press and can't wait to try it.
Be well, be happy and have a great day,
