TRENDING NOW (what’s that mean anyway?)
Any time one of us had the droops or doldrums, especially in winter, my grandmother always said we needed a tonic. She never gave us a tonic, just said one was needed, which was probably a good thing since when I hear the word tonic, I think of cod liver or castor oil, both of which are off the scale on the official Disgust-O-Meter. My own personal winter tonic is this:
Take one cold and cloudy day
Add a nice fire and some knitting
Mix in a couple of grands, chocolate milk and cookies
Monitor closely as not to miss anything
Watch your contentment rise
Repeat as often as necessary

ON THE NEEDLES
I’ve done very little knitting the last day or so, still working on the second Phloem Sock; I did remember that I promised a quick show and tell of the Metalico yarn that The Yarn Mart ordered for me and it’s more beautiful than I remembered -
Here are the stats:
50% baby Alpaca and 50% raw silk
All natural/No dyes
This is going to transform into Sarah Smuland’s Etched Rio Wrap and I can’t wait to get started. The softness and shimmer of this yarn is amazing. Check out the Blue Sky Alpaca website for a look at the pattern.
