Snowy days and winter knits

The weather has turned wintry. After feeding the sheep, a brisk walk in the snow, it's time for a cup of tea and sit by the fire, browse a magazine, finish a few knits and start a new project.

Typical view from the window over the last few days...

Typical view inside over the last few days...

The latest project is under way, another pair of socks. However, I did some research into a different pattern and found the Simple Skyp Socks by Adrienne Ku on Ravelry. Very similar to my favourite Simple Ribbed Socks pattern by Kate Atherley but with a herringbone type design incorporated into the rib. I'm using the Blue Moon hand dyed Indigo by The Border Tart. The stitch pattern is worked over two rows and very easy to remember. It's good to have something that's not too demanding, I can still look out of the window at the changing scenery and knit at the same time - in theory. 


  1. These are lovely-- I'm bookmarking the pattern! :)

  2. What a beautiful view you have there. Our temps are polar opposite to
    yours...we are expecting about 39C today. lol Love your knitting and
    the pattern is too cute. It's great when you get a simple but super looking
    pattern without too much fuss. I can't wait to see it finished.
    Cheers, Anita.

  3. That view is priceless. And knitting by the fire overlooking that winter scenery must be dreamy!
