Knitting season has officially begun.

How satisfying is it to grab a few skeins of wool off the basket, put them together, and fashion a sweater?  Yes.  This is a nice little something for The Girl.  The cap sleeves make it the perfect sweater for this in-between time of Fall.  Also satisfying was how quickly it came together, despite the very persistent beckoning of my spinning wheel, which I’ve answered regularly.

Today has brought rain, the promise of blustery winds, and the pitiful company of a sick boy.  I hope to scrounge up some kindling to light the home fire, brew some catnip tea and miso soup, and rock my sweet little man to the gentle percussion of knitting needles at work.  If that doesn’t banish our collective ills…well, then, I don’t know what will.

Ravelry details here.

PS:  I just got a Big Girl Camera.  Holy. Smokes.  Get ready to live.  (as soon as I shake this lingering sickness)

      Squeeaaall! I feel like this thing is making me look like a rock star. I went with a Canon 2Ti and a 50mm 1.4 lens.
      AND how are you, Ms, Momma? Turning your thoughts to birthing now, right? I’m going to muster up all my peaceful bliss vibes and send them your way. Go wait by the mailbox. 🙂
