Sometimes Mondays.

...look like the start of something new!

I was delighted to be chosen as a tester for Heidi Kirrmaier's new pattern, Footprints in the Snow.  I'm a huge fan of Heidi's patterns and this one - a simple topdown pullover with a mock turtleneck (here's her Instagram teaser photo) - looks super wearable. I'm using Shibui Linen + Silk Cloud (yay for stash!) and love the idea of a sweater in linen, silk and a touch of mohair for spring ... you know ... eventually!

We have a "winter weather advisory" happening here this morning. Icy rain is supposed to start any minute now. Seems like a great excuse to stay home and knit!

Hope you're all staying warm!

  2. Love the teaser! The choice of knitting over icy roads and walkways is a good call.

    1. I was smitten as soon as I saw that photo! and re the weather, I'm almost always the first in the group to wimp out when the weather's bad ... and it doesn't bother me one bit!

  11. I hope your Tuesday is turning out to be warmer and safer than your Monday! The sweater looks like something you would enjoy wearing, so simply elegant.

  12. I love how that swatch looks, can't wait to see the FO. I was glad that the weather didn't delay my flight, but the need to cancel school I think was a little premature.
