This, I think is a fun idea - shoot and share twelve or more pictures throughout the year, one picture for each month. Tag and share your photos in the 007 - Snap a Dozen Days Flickr group photo pool, and you're done. I love it. A project that can be completed in 20 minutes or less? Yes, please, sign me up.So, January 2007 - here you are. Cold and snowy, with winter coats everywhere.
I walked past this coat a number of times this weekend while in Toronto on a quick road trip. I find the idea of a coat hung on a fence absurd in these cold January days, and suffered the cold to take take the shot. Winter came on with a bang this year; before this recent drop in weather, I was beginning to doubt it would ever come. But, after weeks of backwards weather and the first green Christmas in my lifetime, January proved to be winter worthy indeed.
A bit overdue on this one... I made this simple scarf for Rob before Christmas with two different colours of brown and grey-ish Noro Silk Garden to match his winter coat.
While it does match his winter coat, this scarf has spent much more time complementing my winter coat. A simple but satisfying knit to say the least. 4 balls of silk garden, 1x1 rib, alternating every second row with a fringe. No cables, no stranding, no fancy stitches, just plain and simple.
