New Knitting

Snowed in with a heaping stash of yarn! What could be more perfect?

Last night (Christmas night) I began knitting from a new pattern book that was a gift from my brother-in-law. The book, natural nursery knits by Erika Knight, contains a collection of wonderful patterns. The samples are in natural pinks, taupes, oatmeals and grays.

One pattern was so adorable I had to knit it the moment I curled up on the couch...a rattle in a warm oatmeal tone with a pink checkered sash around its neck. One night, a few hours of knitting and a few glances out the window to admire the falling snow and it was complete!
