Happy Belated Winter Solstice

Happy belated Winter Solstice! It has been far too long since I have been to my own blog. Life has gotten in the way. But one of my resolutions for 2022 is to get back to writing about knitting, and let’s be real, my knitting life has taken a back seat burner to the rest of my life. And 2022 is going to be the year I change this.

The sunset on December 21, 2021 (Winter Solstice) at around 2pm in Alaska.

I recently moved to Alaska with my husband. Everywhere you look, nature just takes your breath away. As I write, there is a winter storm baring down on us, with snow flying around like a snow globe (but you can only see this if you turn on the lights outside since it is so dark out  otherwise one could not even tell it is snowing outside 😆 ).

Alaska has taught me so much for the little time I have lived here. But it smacked me in the face with an important reminder, my knitting skills are ever so appreciated here. 😊  In the short time I have been here, I have knitted my husband a double sided hat in fingering weight yarn, myself a quick chunky cabled hat, started a cabled lap blanket, making myself a balaclava (for those -30 F days that I need to venture out into), and slowly working on finishing up pairs of socks I abandoned long ago (which was quite silly  on my part since they only needed the heels to be finished!). Knitting the basics for winter has reinvigorated my love for knitting again. 🧶 I hope you will join me on my journey of living life in Alaska while making knitting a larger role in my life.

Until next time,
