Fresh off the needles: two 7″ squares for the Gracious Parcels project! Both patterns are from the “365 Knitting Stitches a Year” perpetual calendar by Martingale. The pattern on the left is “King Charles Brocade”, found on the calendar page for Dec. 12; the other on the right is “Feather and Fan”, found on Feb. 9. Yarn by Filatura Di Crosa, style “501”, 100% virgin wool and washable.
While preparing my package for mailing, I made a cup of Holiday Spice tea. The antique tea cup, a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law, is a treasure that elevates the simplest of tasks.
