All wrapped up

In a new shawl, for me.

When I saw this beautiful creation, I knew I had to make one for myself. (Click on Ravelry link for instructions on how to make your own. Thank you, EraLunaris for the gorgeous inspiration!)

It's the ultimate automatic-pilot knitting. With beautiful yarn. My favourite kind of project.

I decided against the fringe, adding a little garter border instead.

The yarn looks grey from a few feet away, but up close, it's bursting with colours.



Flecks that show up beautifully through sunlight.

A change in (seasonal) scenery, finally!

It's 4:30 am, and I cannot sleep. Too many to-do's rattling around in the ol'brain. Why not get up and take pictures of my Christmas tree instead?

I couldn't bear to leave up a post sporting jack-o-lanterns any longer (regardless of how cute that baby is).

I want to show you all the knitting I've been doing. But I can't.

It's secret knitting. And it's a big amorphous pile of grey stocking stitch anyway, so there's not much to see.

Twinkling lights and red wool pom poms are all I got for you, for now...

Stay warm,
