-::- Rainy days
November brought us heavy rains, which flooded parts of our garden. Leaving it looking melancholic and eerie.
-::- Split pea soup
Yesterday we made split pea soup. My favourite. The epitome of winter fare, warming and comforting. And most importantly, thick enough to stand a spoon up in. Used this recipe and added some leftover sausage. Delicious.
-::- Miss Wonderly Socks
The Miss Wonderly socks are finished and they are very possibly the prettiest socks I’ve ever knit. The lace pattern is easy to remember and adds a lovely, vintage touch. I knitted the socks from the cuff down, on dpns, which is how I prefer to knit my socks. The Malabrigo Yarn Sock is a pure pleasure to work with: 100% merino, soft and silky.
I know I’m repeating myself, but I just love knitting socks. There’s something very relaxing and soothing about knitting socks, and I usually have a pair on my needles, either as an in-between project, or as a smaller, more portable project when I’m knitting something bigger. Whenever I look on Ravelry, a new design catches my eye, and I’m off ordering more sock yarn.
