  1. I love this pattern. The best thing about winter is when the weather is foul outside and, I am snuggled up inside, with a new bag of yarn, a hot latte and some chocolate.

  2. I live in Wisconsin and sometimes our winters seem 6 months long. I love being indoors, cozy and warm, with a supply of yarn and knitting patterns, some good books and lots of soup in the freezer.

  3. I love that first big fluffy snow, and the chance to go outside and capture a flake on my eyelashes and tongue. Childhood reborn.

  4. this is truly beautiful and inspiring! can’t wait till next winter so will wear it instead of a jacket the rest of the year

  5. It appears as though a French plumber has hijacked your link to when I click on the “this post” link above the page opens to “Debouchage Toilette Ile France.”
