~Enjoying sweet solitude on a snowy day at home pictured above.
~Listening to my Anonymous 4 station on Pandora, I can't get enough of the close harmonies, and I love the mix of folksy ballads and Gregorian chant. If you haven't heard A4, you should. (Check out their website --I just did, and I discovered they are coming to Tulsa on March 11!) Another folk artist to love is Kate Rusby, who harks from West Yorkshire. Hear her rendition of Blooming Heather on YouTube.
~Etsying, I stumbled upon this enchanting portrait of Jane Austen. Since we have few pictorial representations of Miss Austen, I enjoy it when artists attempt to portray her.
~Knitting feverishly continues, thanks to such inspiration as Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed and others. I'm commencing on a knitted tam from his pattern "Relm" that was featured in Knit.1 magazine last fall. I suppose yarn is supposed to be a big deal, but I'm still stuck on Caron's Simply Soft, which is some of the cheapest stuff out there. This hat will be gray, and if I like the pattern, I'll upgrade to a more prestigious yarn for the second run.
Where are you this winter day? What occupies your mind, heart, and hands?
