(two months later)
It's been two months since I blogged, and I really didn't know how to start again. A Scotland post? A homestead post? A new recipe? A Yarn Along post?
A Yarn Along post it is...
Current projects in the yarnbowl are a mobius cowl/shawl being knit in Knitpicks' Hawthorne fingering in the Inverness colorway (the blue) and a shawl/wrap being knit in Knitpicks' new lace weight "Luminance" in the Indulgence colorway (the red). Both are new designs that I hope to release later this summer. :)
The pale green shawl modeled by my beautiful AnnaLynn is a collaberation project with Amanda Makes Yarn! Amanda's gorgeous Duplicity merino/alpaca fingering in the Jadeite colorway is the foundation for my new Viridescent shawl pattern which will be released soon on Ravelry; we'll be hosting an IG giveaway, so follow along (DoleValleyGirl & LittleHouseBigWoods) if you'd like a chance to win a copy of the pattern along with a skein of yarn and a nifty project bag made especially for our giveaway! Yay! Many, many thanks to Tracey who blogs at Clover and Sarah who blogs at His Little Wife for testing for us! xoxoxo
The Baker's Daughter was a good read in keeping with my WWII theme of late. An enjoyable, easy summer read that I finished two nights ago. The story switches back and forth between the 1940s and the present day as the characters deal with the hardships of war and life. Baking is featured throughout which kindled my desire to heat up the oven...
About blogging, I'm pondering how to go forward with this space. IG is easy, convenient, and it's on my phone which makes consistent posting more of a possibility. BUT, I've got ideas, thoughts, recipes, and musings that just don't necessarily fit into the IG format. So... stay tuned, happy changes here are coming! :)
