It’s been a wintry week here in Pittsburgh… bitterly cold temperatures – which meant we had some sunshine! A knitter does not cry over cold… we have sweaters, hats, mittens, cowls, scarves… cold weather is every knitters dream! You know… the days you can wear.all.the.knits! And those slices of sunshine? Who all doesn’t need a bit of a Vitamin D boost as January draws to a close! The snow from our last snowstorm is still on the ground and this morning a fresh blanket of snow covered it. I love it when it is all fresh and white… it is visible reminder that each day we have a fresh start! Right?
Let’s see what’s in the mailbag this wintry Friday, shall we?
I know you thought that you were winning the battle in my head. I am usually adept at ignoring the ever-present noise during the day, but night time is a different matter. You have been winning the Battle of Darkness making me a casualty of far too many sleepless nights. But! No longer! I have some new armor that is splendidly effective at silencing you! Bose Sleep Buds have banished you to the Halls of Brown Noise! It is a wonder what uninterrupted sleep does for a body! And even more wonderful what weeks of uninterrupted sleep can do! So take that, Tinnitus. You are down for the count… at least at night!
Sorry not sorry,
A well-rested Kat
My most beloved Imagined Landscapes!
As I draw to a close on my January Gnome… I just had to take a moment to stop and thank you for so many things… perhaps too many to list in one short letter! But I wanted to thank you for your Insane Creativity… my goodness, you are a wonder! After knitting Gnutmeg I can now knit jog-less stripes, I have a better understanding of planned increases, and you have watered the joy that had withered inside me! I have one wee little leg to go… but the Gnome Boot! Oh my goodness!
Anxiously awaiting my February Gnome and I can’t wait to see what you can teach me about cabling!
Your most adoring fan!
Gnon-stop Gnitting Kat
And with that… I say Let the Weekending Begin! (if only, right?)
See you all back here on Monday! Have a great weekend everyone!
I like the tone of this positive post! You sound upbeat and happy. Thanks for the pick-me-up.
Great post and that little gnome boot? Oh my! Love it. Yay for uninterrupted sleep too (lacking that over here in Eastern PA). Happy weekend Kat – I’ll look forward to seeing your completed January Gnome!
Those crazy little details in Sarah’s gnome designs are THE BOMB!! Love it. Can’t wait for February!
Great letters! Tinnitus also plagues me, but I’m the opposite. It bothers me more during the day and not so much at night once I’m asleep. I’m glad you have found a way to get uninterrupted sleep!
And those gnome boots have made my day!
the new meds have made my tinnitus extra loud, so far I am good at ignoring it (I think it’s louder in the winter anyways…). Stay warm my dear friend!
Wintry weather, knits, gnomes, and new Bose buds–what a cheerful way to welcome the weekend! Enjoy.
The boot on that little gnome is darling. How does she design such things? Stay warm and let the weekend begin.
Did you see it’s actually going to get into the *40s* next week? I am really hoping we can stay above freezing for a few days so all this ice can melt. I don’t mind a little snow, but some people never cleared their sidewalks after the last storm and walking can be a bit treacherous.
Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and staying warm!
Your 1etters are fun. I 1ike to post 1etters too. Sorry, not sorry, ……!ove that!!!
Mending socks…..you shou1d win a prize for that!
I love the gnome boot! Wish I could do the gnome of the month, but my son has requested a sweater…I’m going to save the link, though, and maybe I can start when his sweater is finished! They’re so cute! Thanks for sharing!
The gnome boot. Be still my heart!
That gnome boot!!
