Do you ever create something you think is really neat, but then only make one of them for no reason in particular? I made a winter necklace scarf prototype last summer and was excited at the thought of them, but then just...didn't pursue the idea again.
Last night inspiration struck and I decided to make several, so I'll finally be listing them on Etsy! My Sunday afternoon will consist of vanilla coffee, a mini photo session, and some quality time with my Etsy listings tool.
Sometimes you just have to make camp on the floor with your coffee, mocs, yarn, and trusty notebook to sort out your knitwear life. And maybe your life in general.

Slouch level pondering session going on over here. How much slouch is too much? Maybe I'll have slouch level 1 and slouch level 2...slouch level 1 fits my tiny head just perfectly!
Also pretty excited I finally got around to trying out woolspun yarn! I've had it laying around for ages, and everyone seems to be creating such marvellous accessories out of it. I am so down with the squish factor.
'One is constantly reminded of the infinite lavishness and fertility of Nature — inexhaustible abundance amid what seems enormous waste. And yet when we look into any of her operations that lie within reach of our minds, we learn that no particle of her material is wasted or worn out. It is eternally flowing from use to use, beauty to yet higher beauty; and we soon cease to lament waste and death, and rather rejoice and exult in the imperishable, unspendable wealth of the universe, and faithfully watch and wait the reappearance of everything that melts and fades and dies about us, feeling sure that its next appearance will be better and more beautiful than the last.' - johnmuir
I only just finished saying how much I've appreciated my surroundings this winter, and today I woke up to another breathtaking view. Hoar frost blanketed Edmonton overnight, turning everything white with a delicate layer of glistening snow.
I've seen hoar frost only a handful of times, so I couldn't pass up a closer look and the chance for a few more knitwear pictures.
'Come to the woods, for here is rest.'
Every year I find myself more appreciative of my surroundings. I live in a place where I've seen forests of tall, old trees, and I've wandered beside clear streams and rivers. I've put my feet in the ocean and walked along sandy and rocky beaches. I've looked up at mountains towering magnificently above me. I've experienced four vastly different seasons, each with their own beauty.
I can't even bring myself to complain about the snow this winter, because there are some people who have never, and will never, experience it. And that kind of makes me a little bit sad for them.
