quiet today. A has gone snowboarding on the north island without me, and i'm just puttering about at home. the tiniest of flakes occasionally swirl from the sky, and i'm waiting for the forecasted snow to start anytime. just a few centimetres overnight, but i look forward to a fresh new blanket. i might head out for a little walk later if the snow really does start to fall, in the still and quiet that usually accompanies it.
a few glimpses of what i'm working on today. above, a the smallest of packages that will be slipped into an envelope to be mailed out.
some new socks i started for my mom. we bought a couple of skeins of wonderfully soft malabrigo last weekend, and she strongly suggested this green would make wonderful socks for her. the colour is called "lettuce", so i have named these my lettuce leaf socks. i'm enjoying the pattern very much so far and you can see they are going fairly quickly (i just started them on thursday).
and a little stitching. a black and white whale...oh whatever could it be? ;p i hope there will be more to share tomorrow. thanks for your sweet words - i'm doing some healing this weekend! also, thinking of making this for dinner.
