I went downtown on a mission to buy a new watch strap which I found in a chestnut brown leather...I was hoping to find a red one but there were none that fit my watch.
While in the store I perused the petite section
and spied a soft cozy sweater
in a simple style that works with my wardrobe basic colours
at a super low price...
what's not to love about that?
Style and Co.
(I think Macy's carry that line in the US)
the colour of salt and pepper
in a basic style
that I have already worn with my black swingy short skirt
black ponte knit dress pants
it is warm and cozy
with bell sleeves
which I thought I might find bothersome but they are quite lovely
I can roll them up if need be...
like when I was making pizza dough
and dealing cards at bridge.
I wore it under my down jacket beach combing...
We found another heart shaped rock!
I am knitting the Bateaux Mouches scarf that I purchased from Churchmouse Yarns on Bainbridge Island.
The fingering weight of yarn is very fine and is super soft...
by Drops and is a blend of alpaca and silk.
I have started on the second skein and hope that I will be able to finish it before next Spring!
I bring my knitting to the cottage.
I knit while waiting for the ferry and on the ride over...
then if I feel so inclined I will knit for about an hour each day at the cottage.
It is a basic garter stitch but looks very different on the larger needles.
Are you working on any projects?
It's pouring rain this morning and I will have to put on my wellies when I get out for my walk.
My down jacket and this cozy sweater will keep me warm.
Thank you for popping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
