A cozy winter FO to share at last, finished a month ago and today finally have pictures.
Irish Coffee by Thea Colman in Berroco Blackstone Tweed.
Wonderful and well written pattern plus great yarn,
a tweedy blend of wool, mohair and angora.
The pattern calls for short sleeves and think this would be great
in a summer cotton yarn with the shorter sleeves.
In these pictures I'm wearing mother's Christmas tree brooch.
Together we have a great collection and
over the years she has gifted most of hers to me.
Starting December 1st, I wear one everyday!
The brooch on the far right is mother's and was given to me on Sunday at church.
Very special! She remembers getting it at Geary's in Beverly Hills in the 80's
The tree to the left of that is also mother's, a signed Kramer from the 70's.
The green pin below it with 5 candles is a signed Weiss from the 40's.
The others are dime store varieties that are fun to wear too!
This week I had to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the season.
I started to feel squeezed for time and decided to remove some of the
self imposed work that was spoiling my Christmas fun.
As I let go of things I felt the squeeze disappear
and later had to laugh at the extraneous minutiae that I had been holding on to!
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful time of year!
