I am a hearty Yankee and I am ready for a real winter this year.  Yes, winter is coming and I look forward to my knitting to keep me focused and positive in 2017.  Here’s a sneak preview of several upcoming patterns:

 Stay tuned for the first week in January.  I am busily editing and proofing several right now.  Good thing my DH is on a business trip…

I also published a second shawl this fall, Greek to Me, worked in Uncommon Thread Uncommon Everyday and Periwinkle Sheep Delirium.  

Uncommon Thread Uncommon Everyday in Breath (light gray) and Pontus (blue)
Periwinkle Sheep Delirium in Cayenne (red) and Witch’s Cauldron (black)

By the way, if you have not yet tried Delirium, RUN to Karin’s Etsy shop and get some.  It has a lovely hand and works up like butter.
