It's a dreary day here in Western Washington.
Snow is falling in the mountains.
Rain is falling here.
I'm staying warm and cozy indoors with my tea :)
Today's tea is "Orange Dulce."
Dulce means sweet, and this tea does have a natural sweetness to it.
I think it might be orange blossoms.
Do you see the heart shaped petal in the mound of tea?
I've also pictured my very cool fold-over tea bags ... so much easier than a ball strainer.
Today is a good day for knitting too :)
These are the finished sweaters I made for my girls.
(Don't look too closely - you'll see the mistakes!)
But they love them - and feel an imaginary hug from Mom when they wear them to school.
This is a scarf I began ..... and it's got me excited for Christmas preparations.
Scarves and other quick knits are perfect, cozy, loving gifts to give.
This is a bulky wool on size 9 sticks.
The pattern is soooo easy!
Cast on 22 stitches.
Knit 2 Purl 2 - row 1.
Purl 2 knit 2 - row 2.
Knit row 3.
Purl row 4.
For row 5, repeat row 1.
For row 6, repeat row 2.
Purl row 7.
Knit row 8.
Repeat rows 1-8.
If this scarf doesn't come out very long (I only have 1 skein of the wool), I'll make a button hole and sew in a large button and it will be one you can button together .... more like a neck warmer. In any case, I'll show it when I'm done.
Cheers! and Happy Tuesday :)
