I woke up this morning, got out of bed...and I was cold. Usually I wake up warm every morning. I used to be REALLY warm in the morning, like a sweaty mess warm but I'm past a few milestones in the menopause adventure and luckily those days are behind me. So, today...cold. Might be because instead of my usual long-sleeved pj top, I had on a t-shirt with my flannel pants. So I thought about grabbing my usual morning "sweater". It's a shorty-robe type thingie that is made of super soft fleece-y type material my sister gave me for Christmas. I love it and live in it from about 8pm to bedtime every day. And I usually put it on in the mornings too...but I can't fit it under my coat for my early morning walk with Gracie. The thought of having to take it off and wear just a t-shirt and my coat to fend off the cold morning made me shiver. It's 23 degrees out there folks! And icy! Sooooo...I grabbed my Dark and Stormy sweater instead. It fits beautifully under my coat for cold morning dog walkies. Oh Dark and Stormy, how I love thee!! You may be the perfect sweater. Perfect for me because I modified the pattern to make you so. And the yarn is so nice, too. Wool...but soft as can be, right up against my bare arms. Cozy. Here she is:
Anyway, I know it's been a while since I posted. Thought I'd share this sweater with you. I have many, many projects on the needles and a bunch to share. I'll work on that and blog about it soon. I should post again today with a Ten for Tuesday on my knitting projects. I probably have close to ten on the needles. At least that many spinning around in my head to cast on soon. Please starteritis, keep yourself at bay till I cast off a few projects!
