November Fibre Club // Frozen Grapes

If I have ever related to one of Felicia’s fibre club reflections, it was this month. I found myself nodding as I read her notes about enjoying life in the moment rather than always waiting or looking to the future to savour something.

mallard blue.

I am hooked on seamed sweaters. Like really hooked. They are brilliant. And so fast. I knit this in about 10 days! I’ve had this yarn languishing in the my stash, which was originally meant for a sweater for one of the men in my life. In the end, I just never ended feeling inspired… Continue reading mallard blue.
