It's an afternoon of woolly warmth and Vanilla Spice Tea. I'm almost finished with my knitted/crocheted scarflette, which came together all delicate and lofty-like with this yarn from JoAnn. Even from the store shelf it seemed to promise a vanilla winter afternoon. And it has. It does. Pretty world of peace.
I got The Prairie Girl's Guide to Life for Christmas. It's charming, down to its recipe for homemade furniture polish. Definitely going to try that. The book stays in my knitting basket for now, so when I need a change in scenery I can flip it open and read about chopping wood. (Which, believe it or not, I need to know. I'm almost wrote another Girl's Guide To.... this fall, recounting my harrowing and hilarious attempt at chopping wood. Sheesh. If I can manage to chop off the edge of my finger with a knife, I'm terrified to think of what I could have lopped off with a sure-enough axe. But hey. At least now I know how to chop wood.)
But for now I think I'll stick with tea and knitting. Seems more in keeping with a winter paradise of peace, anyhow.
