Tonight finds me cold, writing this blog, my knitting on the table beside me. The house is quiet save for the fireplace video on the television. I saved the Yule Log that comes once a year at Christmas time on the satellite. Certainly is a lot easier to maintain a fire this way!
This is my knitting project, a simple scarf of Bouton d’Or, Made In France ( mais oui ) of 60% alpaca and 40% wool. It looks like what we used to call a rag wool but oh, it is such a sweet, fine yarn and my friend, Howard is going to love it.
This yarn s available in three colorways in Diva at $15.20 a skein and I can mail it to you. ( 360-385-4844, daily 11-5, closed Tuesdays or www.divayarn940@ gmail.com. )
Now my other little “ addiction ” - knitting bags. I swear, each of my projects needs its own bag for carrying about and this one was made by Virginia King in Port Townsend, two years ago. I purchased it because I love the vintage look bark cloth and carefully stashed it away until a week ago. The bag reminds me that spring truly is coming and the bright yellow interior makes me smile.
