Winter seems to have settled in on our Vermont farm, and it is the season for restoration, reflection, and knitting. After spending 8 months caring for new lambs, teaching fiber art students and serving overnight visitors to the farm, I look forward to winter. I love the short days and long nights. It is the time for hot tea, fires in the stove, reading, and knitting needles in hand.
I began this season catching up on the Fringe Hatalong. After knitting my Vermont Cardigan, I had some left over yarn, just enough to knit some hats. I decided I would start with Laurus as it would give me the opportunity to work with two shades of my Gotland gray. The Gotland yarn has a gentle halo which provides an extra layer of warmth, perfect for a Vermont winter.
What’s on your knitting needles?
