With all the snow this year I have been enjoying small knitting projects at home, on the subway, and at cafes. No matter where I am I can bring out the knitting and feel readily relaxed.
I have fallen in love with Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino Wool and can’t stop knitting with it! I have made a few hats for friends from the Super Soft Merino Hats for Everyone pattern from the Purl Bee. As well as a beautiful cashmere hat for a friend.
One of the cuter knits I have done this winter has been a set of baby booties, baby hat, and baby scarf for my friends 4 month old. (image above) Using the same super soft merino in a bright pink color, it was the perfect gift for little Jane.
No matter how long a project takes or how it comes out the joy comes from taking the time to sit with each stitch and relax. It makes the chilly winters not seem so bad.
Live Light Practice:
Cozy up with your favorite knitting project (if you are not a knitting grab your favorite book). Make time for yourself and your favorite hobbies.
