snowfall







The first snowfall of the season, and by all accounts it's here to stay. My mother came to visit me today and brought with her some pictures she had taken of the sheep and the farm. Is there anything more cozy than an image of some fluffy sheep in the snow? They certainly are not feeling the cold.

This is their season.

I finished this pair of entrelac mittens this week. They came from this pattern book - Knit Noro: Accessories - lots of fun. I've already cast on for another pair and I think I'll be keeping them for myself, since I liked my first set so much.

Happy weekend, everyone.

  1. It looks so beautiful, but so cold. Like those mittens - they'll certainly keep you warm. Does this mean you will be having a white Christmas?

  2. Wow, I love the way those mittens look! I couldn't see what book the pattern came from, though, because I don't have a Goodreads account.

  3. What a unique mitten pattern - so different from the normal patterns you see! On a separate note - Jillian - you are the winner of my Hump Day Give-A-Way Contest from last Wednesday for the goat's milk soap. I couldn't find any email for you, so thought I'd get in touch with you here. I'll need an address to mail the soaps to, so stop on over and let me know.

  6. Remember knitting group and everyone working on the entrelac scarf pattern you put together and shared with all the gals? Those beautiful mittens bring back some great memories with old friends.

    1. That's what I was thinking of when I made these mittens - I miss our old knitting circle.
