Amazing Threads Cold Weather Knitting, Cocoa & Cashmere

I finally have my knitting jojo back. I had surgery on my thumb last May and it was successful.  BUT my wrist has deteriorated.  Gosh darn it I need my hands to knit, work and play.  PLUS pick up those sweet grandbabies of mine.  I am a process knitter.  I love the way I relax with the rhythm of the needles.  It truly soothes my soul. 

So, what am I knitting? I was knitting away on Plathe in Shibui Echo & Cima..and then we received Artfil Sweater. I am obsessed with the new Artfil Sweater yarn and am knitting Big Love by Ankestrick.  Unique construction and a simple textured pattern that is easy to knit. 

While I love shawls but I REALLY wear lots of capelets cause they keep me warm and stay put. Angel made me the Simple Pleasures Poncho for Xmas and it is so wonderful in Embrace 100% Yak.(no pilling and so soft). It is time for a sweater or 2...especially with our weather in January and now continuing in February.  There is no warm weather trip scheduled for me this winter..So I think I will turn on my gas fireplace and knit to stay out of the MN winter~
