I find winter in Johannesburg very pleasant and a joy. It is not extremely cold, and the sun is pleasant and comforting. I would not mind very much if we had our fair share of snow, since I do love snow.
But in Johannesburg we make the most of the pleasant winters days. Like spending a glorious sunny cozy morning, having a cup of coffee and enjoying the stunning view of the country clubs’ lawns. I bit dry in patches, which is to be expected in mid winter.
I have been patiently knitting away at my grey sweater. I have already reached the under the arm length, and have now cast on for the sleeves. The progress is steady, and I am loving the way the cable insert is turning out. I have no pattern for this, so I will need to look at the top construction as soon as the sleeves are long enough.
And I spoiled myself with a little bit of happy mail. Stunning bright, cheerful yarns from Linda’s Treehouse, in Kingfisher. I chose Bee Eater and Sunshine Grows. I think these would be great summer wear items. 🙂 Or winter, as they are so cheerful.
My latest find in project bags are these Box Project bags. They are square and deep with a zipper. If you open them all the way, you can fold the top back and they double as a portable fabric yarn bowl. The cute sheepies print on these were just irresistible. I got two sizes, one for sock size projects and one for shawl size projects.
