A few days of negative degree weather will make you forget all about your resolutions for the new year and compel you to bake scones. It was either the weather (which I blame everything on since I moved from California to Vermont) or one of the inspiring books I received for Christmas - "The Apron Book", which captivated my domestic side throughout the recent storm.
I received a library of craft-related books for Christmas this year, which confirms that I was a really good grrrl in 2007. "The Apron Book" by EllynAnne Geisel (shown above), "Vogue Knitting Quick Reference" by the editors of Vogue Knitting Magazine,"Knitting Lingerie Style" by Joan McGowan-Michael, "The Ultimate Sock Book" by Vogue Knitting, and "Sew Everything Workshop" by Diana Rupp.
Jon, Nico and I went snowshoeing this morning, followed by a trip to the recycling house... so that should justify consuming a few extra comfort calories, snuggling up with a good book and starting a new project.
