Hello to all of you! I am up early this morning and what a beautiful morning it is! It is so quiet and still, a perfect time for a cup of tea and a few moments of early morning reading. I have several books laid aside for my must reads, but lately with so many things to do I find myself reading short poems or verses from my many small gift books. Don't you just love a lovely gift book....I try and carry one with me when leaving the house, they are perfect little pick me ups! One of my favorite is "Joy For The Journey" , it fits perfectly in your purse and is full of daily reminders on the beauty of life and God's unconditional love for all of us....wonderful!
I just had to share with you some knitting I was doing while on my blogging break. I am one of those girls who love to take long evening drives up the coast with a hand knit scarf wrapped around my neck to keep the breezes at bay. Other than keeping you warm, I think it is something quite sophisticated about a lovely piece covering a woman's neck that always catches my eye!
I have notice scarves have taken a nice turn, and it is the scarflette and neck cozy. Well I designed this one and it is somewhat loved! I tell everyone, it is simple in construction, but lovely in its completion! I have been knitting these neck cozies up a storm! The cranberry color is my Sweet Mother's the darker green is my daughter's who wanted it off my neck! I must say they are really beautiful. The yarn is a lamb's wool acrylic blend and comes in several beautiful colorways! I think I love the fact of not just being pretty but it stays put and easy to take with you! I am in the process of designing other styles, but I must complete my knitting on these.
I also plan to do a little shop restocking and decorating so look forward to that! I have a brand new blog in progress I will give you more info in the next few weeks. As for my knitted pieces, I do plan to put them in the Etsy Shop once I catch up outside orders. All the knitting has been wonderful for me...a lovely way to relax and enjoy pretty yarn! Wanted you to also have a little peek at a pair of fingerless gloves I made for myself and a little neck cozy to match! Now that I have filled your ear with all this knit talk, I want to wish all of you a fabulous week filled with all the things you love to do most! Have a beautiful week!
