Bouncing Back

I'm coming up for air after being under the weather for a good 24 hours or so.  Over the last couple weeks, I've been in contact with so many people who are sick, and I did my best to steer clear of the germs, but it was inevitable that eventually they would catch up with me.

Laying low definitely threw my schedule out of whack, and I'll be picking up the pieces for the next couple days, but the worst is over. In-between napping and feeling just plain miserable, I was able to knit a few rounds.  And that's all I needed to finish this.

3 Color Cashmere Cowl.  A quick bath, a little shaping . . . ready to go in no time.  This project was entertaining all around - mixing and matching colors, plenty of variety.  It was a good on-the-go project, and already I feel lost without it.

The yarn is Bertha Sport, colorways Cloud, Raven and Peacock.  The pattern is written for fingering weight, but I did a substitution and reduced the number of stitches.

A quick PSA.  If you're in the Boston area, tomorrow is the Handmade Holiday Market sponsored by gather here.  This year the event is in Inman Square at 1343 Cambridge St and runs from 11:00 - 6:00. They've put together a diverse collection of vendors, and I'm honored to be one of them.  Stop by and enjoy the festive fun.

For this week's color inspiration . . . 

A yellow spark.
