The darker days of December, with their overcast filtered light are some of my favorite days.

A time for warm toast, iced coffee and cozy reads. This book may have been purchased solely based on the fact that it contains my most favorite sock knitting pattern ever (Emily’s Favourite Socks) that and the Persephone mitten pattern totally knocked me out.

The bleak landscapes of rural life in winter always get me right in the heart.

A season when the metal tools get colder, the knits plumper, the crochet more delicate and a simple candle bulb swap out for bubble lights makes the kitchen window view a little brighter.

(When I first learned to crochet all I could get my hands on were vintage workbasket patterns, I fell in love with thread crochet and making snowflakes and doilies and witching up scalding slurries of sugar starch.)

It’s also the time of year, I happily make more hats than ever.

Some days you just need little reminders, honesty, a loaf size bread squishy, too many adorable pens, and a few hours of alone time.

This vintage floral print is giving my newest bag all the 1970s bridesmaid/1980s barbie feels πŸ’•
