Something New! Pretty Pie Shawl.

A little while ago I had an idea for a knit thing. Ideas that actually make it from my brain to yarn to paper are few and far between in this time of small children.

You can check out the particulars here, over on Ravelry!

This triangle shawl is knit from the point up, in lovely, super squooshable garter stitch. After it is cast off, stitches are picked up and the triangle point border is worked. It’s so very easy, and really fills the need for easy evening knitting.

Along with this pattern, I am introducing a new yarn, Vesper Sparkle Handpaint! The shawl takes one entire 100g skein, and only about 10g of tonal semi solid for the border, but I am including a 25g hank for that.

I’ll have the pattern and kits available in the shop around Noon tomorrow. The first run will be limited, but more will follow quickly!

Comfort!

So I guess al this cold weather isn’t SO bad. At least it is perfect for comfort food. I tried butternut squash soup for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Delish! I did the same as for a roasted root vegetable soup I make, but using only the squash and an onion for the veggies.

This is definitely going into our soup rotation this season!

They were not kidding when they said it was going to be cold for awhile! 42 degrees here today, and a killer windchill! It’s like Halloween is over, so we’re jumping head first into Winter.

I’ve been working on a lovely, wooly, colorwork Cardi- for me! More on that soon!

My Baby Boy turned FOUR yesterday! Time is going by so fast. He is the BEST of everything, and definitely one of the most interesting people I have ever met.

Oh Hey!

I did not mean to leave for a month! I don’t know where the summer went. We’ve just been spending it hanging out. I had to drop in today to tell you that my shop is, sadly, for the moment, broken. I, or rather, the best IT guy in the whole world, who, despite being a super busy with work & being an awesome Dad, is trying to figure out what went wrong. Please hang in there, one way or the other I will have a shop up again!! (Soon!)

My Baby Girl turned one year old today! So surreal, this year went by so quickly. She’s an amazing person, so full of light. I love her beyond infinity, and cannot imagine our little family without her.
