The mild winter is spurting to an end and spring is around the corner...some days upon us, some days teasing us with slushy rain and snow. I'd better finish showing you some of the winter knitting that went on here. Unfortunately for me, there's not much of it. Most of the autumn and winter was spent knitting and unraveling the same sweater (February Lady Sweater) 3 times in 2 different colors. Fun, huh?
After the first unravel, I pulled out this sweet Cascade Farms heathered eco-wool and knit this jumper for Miel. It's the same one I knit 2 years prior, and I'm so glad I did it again. The pattern is from Catherine Tough's Easy Knits for Little Kids. It's Miel's go-to layer for wintertime. Perfect for school and for layering under jackets and sweaters with tights or pants underneath. There's nothing like seeing your little one in a layer of hand-knit wool when she sets of for a chilly day at preschool.
The big motivation for getting going on it was the sweetest store on a backstreet of our Motomachi neighborhood with a gorgeous assortment of buttons. Miel took the longest time choosing the pearly flowers that grace the jumper.
So now I've been project-less for the past month or so. I did make a quick headband for myself and the next day found it with the clothes that were coming out of the dryer reincarnated as a felted coffee cup sleeve. Not in the flow. So I waffle between trying to force myself to create something from my stash to prove that I am worthy or just to take a trip to the yarn store, buy something lovely, and cross my fingers that I'll pull it off this time. The answer seems obvious, but still I waffle.
