Yarn Along: Home...
While we were on the phone yesterday, my sister asked me about my current knitting project. With Holy Week Services and preparations for Pascha, I hadn't knit a stitch and had no projects in mind. I decided to cast on (160 stitches rather than 100) to a Lottie Cowl for our daughter last night, though. I needed something to keep my hands busy and this cowl is extremely simple. I love the texture of it and think that it was the perfect use of my last skein of Farmhouse White. I knit it (and the Lottie Beret) for my little niece a few autumns ago and since Sugar Plum lost her Worn Denim Honey Cowl (grrrr), she's been asking for something new. It should be done in another day or two.
We are reading Home on repeat around here. It is a gorgeous little picture book with very few words and the illustrations are amazing (especially the page that pictures a babushka's house).
