At last, my love has come along. My lonely days are over, and life is like a song. Oh yeah, at last. The skies above are blue. My heart is wrapped up in clover, the night I looked at you. I found a dream, that I could speak to. A dream that I could call my own. I found a thrill to press my cheek to. A thrill that I have never known....
Ah, this is how happy I am to be knitting Spire. I've dreamed of it for the last two years, but there was always something else to do first. At last, it's time to cast on. My yarn choice changed often, until I finally settled on Shelter, by Brooklyn Tweed in the "Snowbound" colorway. I had wanted something tweedy, but really cozy and warm, so that the finished Spire could be a blanket at my wee cabin. I would have liked to begin yesterday, but unfortunately, I had lost 4 out of 5 of my size 8 DPN's, so I decided to wait until today, when I could pick up a set at my LYS. In the next few minutes, I'll start up the fireplace with a cup of white hot chocolate in hand, and get down to business!
I'll be excited to see everyone else's beginnings!
