Knitted Gifts Are Warm And Fuzzy In Two Ways

Gentle reader,

Some people don’t care much for cold mornings and winter days, even many of the knitters and crocheters I know! But I love them. And you know what I love about them even more? I can wear the knitted gifts I’ve received! And that’s pretty amazeballs.

This beautiful hat was knitted by my beautiful friend Jules from Woollenflower. It’s from a Brooklyn Tweed pattern – Vega by Alexis Winslow – and I think the yarn is Morris Norway 10ply.

And don’t I look pleased about it! It was so snug and warm. This knitted gift keeps me warm and fuzzy on my head and in my heart, and I’m not even mad about how cheesy that sounded. ^_~

Are you knitting any gifties at the moment? Share in the comments!

Magical Mornings

Gentle reader,

On mornings such as these – when the light has that very particular and indescribable quality and extends itself out in flat, deliberate sheets, rigid and brittle, broken in places by branches, power poles and twisting leaves and dispersed into silent, dappled shards – I think to myself that perhaps it would not be such a foolish thing to believe in magic after all and maybe I ought not go to work but instead search for an entrance to Oz, or Narnia or Wonderland or somewhere entirely new.

Do you ever have mornings like that?
