knitting, life

In need of a little color…

This week has been very rainy, grey and freakishly warm. I am starting to feel foolish that I have continued to leave out my little garden flag that says “Let it snow.” Though with the major temperature drop coming later this week, I suppose it still could. Regardless, it has made me retreat to my favorite beverages from when we lived in England – Nescafe vanilla lattes (yesterday’s morning treat) and Twinings fruit tea (today’s choice) – since it seems appropriate for the weather.

My other remedy for the weather has been to do some knitting with fun, happy colors that make me think of spring.

I had loads of leftover cotton after my crazy 2010 Christmas knitting where I made 31 dishcloths for gifts (not a project I’d recommend for others unless you want to say goodbye to your sanity). I have yet to recover from that Christmas knitting project, which is why I didn’t do any this year.

So any guesses on what my colorful stack of knitting is? (My knitting groups are disqualified from guessing, since they know. :-))

In the meantime, I’m off to change out my garden flag to a Valentine’s Day one. At least that isn’t weather-dependent.
