New Years Eve ðŸŽŠ

This was the sunrise that greeted me this morning as I headed into work, beautiful!
Now to show you all what I’ve been working on during the week I was off from my full-time bill paying job…
Knitting fingerless mitts…

These are knit from the pattern “Main Morning Mitts” I’m using a chunky weight yarn with sz. 6 DPN’s. The pattern is sized for Small, Med & Large. These mitts are for a pre-teen so I’m using the Small sz.as written in the pattern.

These are called Susie Rogers Reading Mitts”. I paired this pattern with Berroco Vintage Colors. The yarn is a pure delight to work with. It’s soft yet sturdy. These are for a friends wife. This pattern is also wrote with three sized available to the knitter to choose from. I’m using sz. 4 DPN’s and the small size of the pattern instructions.

My last Main Morning Mitt! I’ve just got to finish the thumb and then the 3 sets of fingerless mitts are on their way to their new home 😀

I took a walk the other evening, the sun had dropped below the horizon and the sky had this lovely illuminated blue color, looking at the sky through the big birch trees made for an intriguing photo…I couldn’t pass this photo opp up.

My fav coffee beverage from Starbucks is the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, ex wip cream 😎. Some days I just can’t make to my local Starbucks so I have to settle for my home brew latte. I did purchase the cinnamon dolce syrup…I must say…I make a dam good latte.

This lovely knit cowl is so simple. It’s my own design. Knit 3 purl 3 rib for a good 7 inches. Then I worked in short rows to give it a collared look. I came across a piece of beaded jewelry and decided to add it to my cowl. It added that little bit of visual interest and sparkle that was missing. The cowl is 3 lace wright yarns held together, one was a silk blend, one a wool blend and the last was a purple-white-green (long color ways) yarn, I’ve had them in my stash for quite some time. The silk blend and the wool blend were purchased from Blackberry Ridge in Wisconsin. The yarn with the long color ways that really brought the project together is a mystery yarn. I cannot recall the name of the yarn or where I purchased it…bummer

Now for your viewing pleasure…some of my local photography 😀. enjoy

On our way home from Mothers we were in a fender-bender…a $4700 dollar “fender bender” SMH

We went down to Sandgates Sunday, the weather was beautiful and the view was great! The River is the Patuxent.

After sporting blonde locks all summer I decided to go ombré red

I love my Starbucks! When I can’t get to them, I just have to make my own…what’s a girl to do??

Taking a walk to the mailbox…
