actual knitting content.

On Saturday night, a couple hours after returning home, I went over to visit with my favorite greyhound and his people (who were kind enough to remind me to bring some knitting). We listened to an episode of This American Life, and I made a little bit of progress on the body of my Snowbird cardigan.

Remember this? The cold weather has me itching to knit cozy, cuddly accessories, so I dug out my Avery cowl and finished the first repeat. A couple more, and I’ll be able to wrap this around my neck. Twice.

I acquired some pink/purple cords, and I’m pretty sure these will help keep me happy this winter. I wear a lot of neutrals, so this bit of brightness should complement much of my wardrobe.

I snapped this shot on my way home after Thanksgiving. Snow was falling, and thick clouds were gathering over this silo. It will be December next week, and it’s time. I’m still getting used to bundling up! (Thank goodness for knitwear.)

And then there’s this guy. He’s been keeping me company on the couch these last few days. My mom was sick over Thanksgiving break, and on Sunday morning, I woke up with the first signs of the same thing: laryngitis and a chest cold. After overexerting myself yesterday, I decided to cancel everything today and focus on getting better. (And, I hope, writing at least a few pages of the diss chapter I’m working on.) I’m pretty sure I’ll be knitting a bit today too…

  1. Oh no…I hope you feel better soon! Glad you’re taking the day off to recuperate. Cozy knits will help, too!

    The booties in your last post are so, so cute. I really like how you’ve styled them and appreciated lollyknits fashion advice, too — I love the look of booties, but can never figure out how exactly to wear them. But I think you’ve got the right idea!

  2. See the first photo made me miss my Greyhounds so much. What great dogs they are. Big ol’ couch potatoes, kind of like Boh.

    Love the cords and they will really brighten up your winter. Cant wait to see all the knitting you have going as you make progress on each piece.

  3. Feel better. Put the tea kettle on and get the vitamin C out.
    Boh’s expression looks like a cross between wise and wonderful and “why are you disturbing me by taking my picture. He is a sweetie. I’m sure he’ll snuggle with you while you write and knit.

  4. I LOVE those cords! Just the ticket for winter. Hope you’re feeling better for the weekend!
