Early Spring last year I started a knitting project. There was this beautiful wool in the half price bin at our local yarn shop (Lafayette didn’t know how good they had it with that shop!). It’s a sweet Peruvian merino. I made a pair of fingerless gloves (they are thumbless too). They are an extension of the glorified rectangles that I am so fond on making. And I had more yarn. I bought all they had of that lot.
Then there was Spring, and Summer, when almost no knitting happened at all. Then came Fall, and it was time to knit for Christmas gift-giving.
And so, I’m just now finishing my over-sized cowl. It is warm and soft. It can cover my neck and my head, and the colors are beautiful. After such a long wait, in such a cold winter, I’m enjoying it thoroughly.
Here’s hoping that your winter projects bring you so much joy…
