Coming Up Roses

Vogue Knitting Live was everything you'd expect: Glamourous surroundings, fantastic marketplace, A-list teachers, and of course, enthusiastic and talented students. Everyone was so jazzed to be there, and you just can't help but get swept up in that kind of atmosphere. 

And now I'm back home, enjoying some overdue R & R, plus a little something I call "work":

  Abstract Fiber Temptation ; 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon

Abstract Fiber Temptation; 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon

Can you believe this is my to-do list for today? It's for a project about roses. With cashmere. Somebody pinch me! So soft I can hardly even feel it. And the colors! It's a piece that will be worn up next to the face, so, beautiful + luxurious = perfect!

It's raining today, and just chilly enough for a sweater (finally!). I'm drinking tea and swatching, and there is one Scotty dog on either side of me.  I'm pretty much blissed out. 

I wish you a moment like this, somewhere in your day today. You deserve it.
