Through All Things, I Knit

Has it really been 2.5 years since I blogged about knitting?!?  Well, the knitting hasn't stopped.  Today is wonderfully cool, breezy, and sunny and I sat out back while Lila napped.  Wrapped up in my Kauni Eleanor Stole, with an afternoon home-made caramel mocha in my favorite giant mug, my current knitting project, and an audiobook of Graceling by Kristin Cashore, I snapped this shot on my iPhone. I'm typically frustrated with phone photos but I love how the colors and light turned out in this one.

perfect afternoon

My Kauni Eleanor Stole has turned out to be one of my most worn and beloved knitting projects.  If you are new to my blog, you can read about its genesis and creation in these posts: Bad Blogger, Anne and Some Stole Pics, and Some Winter Pictures.  Last year during Hanukkah, Stephen took this photo of Lila and me with my stole and it is one of my favorites.

Hanukkah and the stole

I love my stole.  I still have another gigantic cake of rainbow Kauni yarn that has yet to find its destiny.  It's waiting patiently until I find the perfect project to inspire me.

Through all things in my life, knitting is there.  I'll go in bits and spurts or in mad jags.  Sometimes when it's hot and I want to be in the garden instead of inside with wool on my lap, I won't knit for days or even weeks.  But, man, when the weather cools off like it has, my fingers itch for the needles and my mind overflows with project ideas.

Here is a mini gallery of some of my favorite finished projects through the last couple of years.  You can click on an image to visit the Ravelry page for my project and see more details.

That last delicious baby is my niece Molly.  Now that I have another girl on the way, I'm dreaming up matching hats and sweaters in sets of 3 for all of these sweet girls to wear this winter.
