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!

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

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!

I can see why you saluted to that flag...and congrats on being selected! I will watch with interest and envy as you whip through this one. Here's to not-having-to-go-out-in-wintry-weather! How much did you get done?
Cheers~

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.

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.
