I’ve been knitting a lot lately, while reading books. But it’s not exactly “Christmas knitting”.
The holidays are stress filled, so I’m enjoying the process of knitting up some of the yarn I’ve collected.
Look: here’s some Tosh DK knit up in Vanilla bean.
It’s lovely, with crisp definition, and flecked with purple in the brown. If you are a knitter (or you have a knitter in your life), a skein or 2 of this is a terrific gift. Vanilla bean doesn’t look like it’s in the shops anymore, but there are other really lovely colors.
I know I will have to head out to shop for presents and cooking supplies sometime soon, but for now, it’s time to take a break.
