I layered my new Balsam over a sweater today before heading out for an afternoon walk. Layers of knits. Spirals of warmth that gently wraps the shoulders. A bit of knitted elegance for the everyday.

modification: knit neck warmer length for 11 inches and then started shaping
At my yoga class this morning the front door was propped open with a large rock, allowing a gentle breeze to flow into the room. We moved through the poses to dancing leaves on the sidewalk outside. I’ve recently renewed my practice after a long break and am amazed at how much the breathing and stretching has invigorated my mind and body.
The movement and energy of the day will continue with my knitting this evening in the form of Balsam by Ilga Leja. (Now if I could only find a chair like this gorgeous one the evening would be perfect.)
