I knit it using Madelinetosh Vintage, with colours Nassau Blue, Button Jar, Coquette and Silver Fox. Its pretty bright and snappy but it is a great antidote to all the gloomy weather we have had lately.
It fits really well. I am definitely going to knit another one soon. I will try another colour in the mix. My felted mitts matched too-another bonus!
The weather here has been really monochromatic. It is hovering above and below freezing. No complaints there!. We get a lot of valley cloud in the winter, so we get really socked in. The plus side is the cloud protects us from very cold temperatures and it also protects our fruit trees and vineyards. We are all longing to see some sunshine and bright blue skies. It would sure be nice to see the top of our mountains again too!
Well there is always a bit of cooking to think about on cold dull days. I made some Focaccia bread and some Cream of Broccoli soup. The soup recipe is here. You can add some dill and herbs for seasoning. It's really good, good for you and super easy. I am always looking for new recipes or meal ideas. What are you cooking? Please share!
