gorgeous morning.

Here’s what I saw when I stepped outside with the dog this morning. I can’t think of anything that calms and readies me for the day the way this kind of sunrise does. (Well, sunrise AND coffee.)

Last night I reheated that curried soup and it was even more delicious the second day. Another picture, because I put it in one of my bright Le Creuset vintage pots — total ebay score.

Last night, I cast on for the Montego Bay Scarf, by Amy Singer (Ravelry link). I’ve been planning to make this for my mom, but was a bit late in ordering the yarn. It arrived yesterday, and I’m hoping I can get it done before Christmas. She has this fabulous bronze dress that looks incredible on her, and I think the Mineral colorway of this HandMaiden Sea Silk will complement the deep bronze of that dress. (We have a bunch of family weddings to attend in the coming year, and I’m hoping that she can wear this scarf with the dress.) Also, my mom has a wool allergy, so finding things to make for her can be a bit challenging, just because non-wool fiber is unfamiliar territory for me.

What do you think — can I finish this in time? Happy Tuesday!

  1. *Sigh* That picture is so beautiful. I am longing for some outdoorsy-ness.

    Of course you can finish it – I have faith :) It’ll be gorgeous!!

  2. Beautiful photo of the sunrise! I’ve been wanting to make a montego bay- I even have the yarn stashed for it… someday. I’m sure yours will be gorgeous and your mom will love it.
