Today I'm thankful for dear friends, letters in the mail, the light through the leaves, the smoky taste of gunpowder green tea in a delicate tea cup, the first chapter of a good book . . .

. . . and the list could go on and on.

I'm currently reading a wonderful book that has my imagination skipping along. I read the first two pages and I knew that I was in love, so I guess I have my weekend pretty much planned out.

1. Brew a pot of tea.

2. Snuggle into my favorite place on the sofa that looks out into the turning leaves with book.

3. Refill teacup as needed.

4. Get up for a walk around the neighborhood, then return to favorite spot to read another chapter and perhaps knit a few rows.

5. Pop a leg of lamb in the oven for dinner, so the whole house smells delicious all afternoon.

The mittens I'm working on are an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern - her mitered mittens - from "The Knitter's Almanac." The yarns I'm using are a combination of store bought and home grown. You can find the dark brown yarn here.


  1. Love the mitered mitts - that looks like a fun project and one I know I can master as I made you a pair a few years back. Too bad someone else liked them so well they nabbed them off your studio desk at school and we never saw them again. Hope they still are keeping someones fingers nice and toasty!

  2. Your coloured kale photo is beautiful. Nothing beats settling into a good book. I currently have about 10 on my bedside table at present - the only problem when all my library requests arrive at once.
    Thank you also for your kind comments on my blog.

  3. There are so many things I love about this post! The pictures, the yarn, the rose cabbage (?), the tea! Thank you for the look into your beautiful life!

    PS do you ever take requests for mittens?
