Things have been rainy and cold here lately. It's almost England weather, and, while I crave summer, I don't mind too much. My car is still on the fritz, meaning I've been confined to my house for the past few weeks, so I really don't mind the cold and rain. It gives me an excuse to curl up with a cup of tea and knitting.
My Daybreak is coming along nicely. I'm very pleased with the colors I chose and, even though I'm not a shawl person, I feel like I can rock it. Hair up + some nice earrings = perfect shawl accompaniment. I've also been scrambling to work on my Cowboy Cowl, but I fear it won't be done before the Malabrigo March cutoff. Somebody needs to spend less time on Ravelry. Is there a support group for that yet?

So good, right?? Cove is my favorite new skein and it is absolutely breathtaking, though I was a bit disappointed by Ophelia. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful skein, but the photos I saw online were a bit misleading and I thought there would be some green in the skein. Maybe it's all inside? I don't have plans for Cove or Ophelia just yet, but I'm thinking Home and Faded Chinos would be perfect for Sweet Mama's Catkin. My LYS coworkers and I are anxiously awaiting the debut of that pattern. And I think my Earl Grey DK would look nice in a Pucker Up, don'tcha think?
My boss asked me a few days ago if I would be interested in doing a guest blogger post for the shop, so look for me over there sometime this week.
