Walking home from school Friday afternoon, I had to stop and take this rather silly picture:
It was another warm day. The leaves crunched under my feet, but not loudly enough to drown out the sounds of the UW-Madison Marching Band practicing. I gave myself a break from paperwork for the last part of the week and spent all my time working with students -- which is the good part of my job. It was one of those golden afternoons where everything felt right.
Like the leggings? They are really fun an comfortable. A few months ago I discovered Gudrun Sjoden, a Swedish designer, and I am crazy about her clothes. I bought a few with my birthday money and I'm pretty sure that's were some holiday gift money will go, too. These were part of the summer collection.
I've been doing some gift knitting. I wish I could remember and thank the blogger who pointed me to this pattern:
This is the Darn Knit Kinetic Cowl by Carly Stipe, knit up here in Berroco Brio. This is a great, fast knit. It just flew off my needles. And I love the result. It is very light and comfortable to wear. I might have to do one for myself.
My brother is visiting from Washington, D.C., this weekend, so life is good. Hope yours is, too!
