Sunshine & yarn

12/52: Favorite things

 

This is my favorite corner of my room. I don't spend a lot of time at home, so when I'm there, I try and spend about as much of my time as possible sitting in my rocking chair and knitting (I'm a grandma, I know...). This is the best time of year for it because the tree has no leaves, so my room gets full sun from about noon until the sun goes down.

 

I've developed a slight obsession with knitting, since it's a very portable thing to take on tour. It's also really cool to collect yarn from around the world. The project I'm currently working on is a lace shawl made from an alpaca/silk blend I bought in Utah. I recently finished the sweater I'm wearing in the photo (made with yarn I bought in New York), and the socks (which I was wearing by coincidence!) are the first pair I ever made, and made of wool from Austria.

 

And on Sunday, I'll be off to collect some yarn from Chile! :)
