To me, from me

I was out shopping for some yarn for my SIL when I found a few goodies for myself.

Although I haven't been writing, I have been knitting.  In late October I started a sweater for my sister made from yarn she brought home from Iceland back in 2016.  I'm in the home stretch, working on the yoke of Mora.  I hope to have it finished to give to her when I see her next week.  She has stopped asking about it, and I haven't told her that I started it, so it will likely be a fun surprise.  

Knitting it has gotten me in the mood for more colorwork--which is good because I plan to make another Mora for myself--she brought home enough yarn for two sweaters. A few weeks ago some ravelry friends were mentioning the latest interweave knits.  I haven't had any interest in Interweave since I let my subscription lapse a few years ago.  But this issue was different.  This winter issue had some sweaters that looked like things I would wear.  So I grabbed it today.  

I have also been intrigued by posts over the past few months by Sonya Phillips on Mason Dixon Knitting.  They make me want to make my own clothes.  I have some books about sewing, but maybe this one will get me going.  

Looking forward to reading, knitting and sleeping over this winter break.
