Trying on a new pair of socks before I weave in the ends. I used the same yarn for my favorite pair of leg warmers (different colorway).
Do you knit socks? If not, I think you should. It’s so satisfying to knit a pair of perfect fitting socks. (Even if they are small like these which can be finished in a few days.) This book has always been very helpful…

I love working with materials that are organic and not treated with chemicals. There’s nothing covering the beauty of the wool, nothing masking the true nature of the yarn. A bit rustic and wooly on the needles, the yarn knitted up is softer, full of depth. Long, ribbed leg warmers for a cold day.

Sometimes there are evenings that call for knitting without fuss or excess detail. And rounds and rounds of stockinette stitch can be quite satisfying in small doses. I set out to knit myself a pair of wrist warmers after seeing this pattern, based on warmers from toast. I cast off late last night and found the warmers this morning catching the most amazing morning light.
