Let it snow

I can't tell you how sick to death I was of orange and black after all my personal Halloween madness this year. Yesterday I woke up to a whole new non-Halloween world and I was SO HAPPY.

Not least because it was also the day on which I got to legitimately open my latest Biscotte Club yarn. Can you stand it?

Blues! Crisp pale blues! The kind of colour that says Winter - but the nicest kind of winter - and Spring buds all at the same time. Then I turned the label and saw the colourway is named 'Snowflake'. Bliss.

As always, an adorable pattern came along with these, a pretty sock with a lattice stitch, and I know I can wear mine right through spring and summer, too. If only my 10 minute stint of housekeeping yesterday hadn't turned into a 10-hour cleanup... but hey, at least I got the skein into a knit-able state before I fell back into bed at the end of it.
