February Theme: Comfort

SONY DSC Last month I introduced you to the idea of monthly themes here at Wool Pickle.  I went with the theme "Bonjour" for January and we spent the month French Knitting, sharing a Bonjour Baby Cowl free pattern (and showed you one in Debbie Bliss), and going to Paris with a new beret!  Lots of other miscellanious projects took place as well, such as my Didymos inspired babywearing blanket (part 1 and part 2), a rainbow babywearing blanket, a baby dalek and a throwback to big dalek, a sugar cookie scarf and a throwback to a snowflake scarf, and fingerless gloves that matched my mama & baby earwarmers.  I re-published a tutorial for a yarn tassel garland and wrote a new tutorial for a star blanket.  I showed you my Street Shawl and some beading upcycles.  Whew, what a month! By the way, if you want to see all those projects side by side, please check out my Portfolio Page!

Now that we're in February things will be slowing down just a hair.  It's time for us to savor the last real winter month of the year and the last days that will be spent primarily indoors.  That's why I decided on the word "Comfort" this month.  I'm going to be focusing my energy on knitting up useful, warm, woolly goodness that will keep my family warm, cozy, and comfortable this month.  When spring comes melting into presence there will be much bustling about, cleaning, planting, and walking, but for now we are cuddled up close against the cold and snow.  I don't want to give away all my plotting and planning for the month, but I can say that there will be a touch more knitting and therefore perhaps more progress posts than ta-das.  It takes me a good while longer to knit than it does to crochet.

Well that's all for today, folks.  I hope I see you around these parts this month and I can't wait to show you what I'm working on!  What do you like to make in February?  Post a comment or drop a link in the comment section.  I love to read them.SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC
