I cast on my Sugared Violets wrap in Canopy Fingering from The Fibre Company. Divine. I completely love this yarn and all the variations of purple in it. The picture above represents the color well and the pattern is interesting too. I didn't realize until I was casting on that it is worked top-down, increasing outwardly with a pretty little eyelet border along the top. This is the first thing I have knit for myself in a long time! I also finished my Pansy Mitts for my friend's birthday and forgot to take a picture before giving them to her- oops! That is another great pattern that I will make again.
In other news, Christmas music is in full swing at our house which is a little anachronistic with the fall decorations everywhere. But when one's husband (who was in previous years Scroogish about the holiday hoopla) says "I think it's time to start listening to Christmas music," one loses no time! I am looking forward to seeing the ways that our community will be blessed by the Lord this Christmas as His love pours from churches and families and individuals around the whole country to this little town of White Swan and the parts of the Reservation around it. I am looking forward to the smiles of the children, some of whom have nothing to smile about except the love of Christ. I am looking forward to joyous singing and rejoicing together with our new church - Hope Fellowship - over Christ, the Messiah, Savior, Divine Baby and Righteous King. It may only be November 19, but my heart is singing a month ahead.
I am joining up with Ginny for Yarn Along! Can't wait to see what other beautiful things are cooking along on needles this week!
