I loved the sunset last night. It was just like a grand painting in the sky.
I watched the sun sink lower and lower, until finally, we got this:
It was awesome and mesmerizing. That three-dimensional effect of light on the various layers of cloud was stunning.
Beautiful sunsets aside, I had an interesting email exchange this morning with a lovely reader who was asking about knitting cables.
The outcome for me was that it got me dangerously sidetracked into finding new and glorious patterns to add to my queue:
Image courtesy of Rowan. This is a free pattern from Rowan, designed by Lisa Richardson. Nom, nom!! Love those cables!! Add to queue. Start intense ‘thinkings’ about what to knit this sweater with. (If you’re not a member of this site, you’ll need to sign up (it’s free) to download the pattern).
And how about this cute number?
Another free pattern from Rowan. It has a cute name too – the Wonky Sweater. I think I’d knit it a tad longer in the waist because I hate feeling drafts around my mid-section. However, I love the cable detail to an otherwise simple pullover. Very nice! Add to queue.
If you are like me, and starting to think about what you’d like to knit for yourself over the holidays, I hope these two sweaters might provide a bit of inspiration.
In the meantime, may all your Christmas knitting be progressing well!
