If you've been following my blog, you may know that I'm obsessed with autumn.
Well, I have a confession to make.
The past two years, I've fallen in love with winter. It's been PERFECT here.
Aside from one very cold week, we are in the 60s during the day and 30s at night. Typically it rains but we are in a drought.
The landscape is very different now, fields that are bright green this time of year because of the rain are muted ochre. It's pretty much the best palette of colors. Lots of creams, tans, bits of dark brown, tiny spots of greens...I love it.
When I saw Miss Babs had a new Babette (one of a kind!) called Coffee Break, I turned showed Chop & was like "IT LOOKS LIKE GRAY LODGE!!!" That's where Chop duck hunts and we go birding, it's very close to our house and I love knitting in the car while he gets a number for morning hunting. I hemmed and hawed about buying it, I realllllly don't need any new sock yarn and it's quite different than what I usually get but a week later, I couldn't stop thinking about it and I got Ashleigh obsessed with it.
I love that she ships yarn SO fast. I typically receive my orders within 72 hours. That's amazing right?! And she's in Tennessee!
These socks were cast on Christmas Day here in Gridley, I worked on them in Chico. In Vina. In Corning. In Redding. In Ashland. And I finished them this weekend in McCloud. They saw a lot of beautiful winter landscapes and kept me company through my discovery of sugar free s'more flavored coffee syrup (World Market!).
