Indulgence knitting




 Sorry I've been a bit quiet. I've been under the weather lately, but finding much comfort in some tea and knitting.



More cardigan knitting, but this time for ME! In beautiful, sheepy, wooly Shelter.

:)))



I'm making Stranger, a gorgeous cabled cardigan from Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People 4 collection. It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a project for myself. I've spent so much time these past months knitting samples and items for Gris. It's lovely to indulge a bit.

I'm hoping to get this done for an upcoming trip to NYC. We're going mainly to see this. And also to go to a Dosa warehouse sale. Anyone familiar with my Pinterest account knows that I'm a HUGE fan of this gorgeous clothing company.

I'm also very very much looking forward to a meetup for good food with great friends. I can't wait!

I just bought this pattern and love it. Trying to scare up one more skein of yarn. Hope you're feeling better.

Sorry you've been under the weather Nicole but tea and knitting are surely the best remedies in the world for such things. I can't wait to see your finished cardigan, it will be amazing and such a beautiful colour. I'm feeling rather envious of your talent, hopefully one day I shall be making something like 'Stranger', too. As for an impending trip to NYC and Dosa, I am about to turn green!
Happy weekend to you x
