the lighter side of winter

"Why, what's the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?"

William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing 

And so we find ourselves in February! Trying hard not to hibernate the rest of winter away by injecting as much sunlight and colors into my days as possible. Luckily, adding a little brightness to my knitting is as easy as casting on a new pair of stripey socks in Valentine's Day colors:

And my winter fade is heading into the lighter side of the season:

Any plans for Valentine's Day? We'll probably spend it at home. I'm thinking of ordering lobster, filet mignon & chocolate covered strawberries from a local restaurant to celebrate my two guys. Hope that you are finding ways to brighten your February days as well!


  1. Love the Valentine's socks! To be honest, I don't think I've ever celebrated Valentine's day in my life, so again I didn't really plan anything this year.

  2. The Vanilla Latte pattern is perfect for that stripy yarn. Love your fade. Tuesdays the tween has tennis so nothing really big going on for our crew. But I think I'll make lasagna tomorrow so we'll have leftovers.

  3. I love the colours of your winter fade! Looks like you are making great progress.

  4. Your dinner plans sound divine! I am not doing anything special :). I saw your Fade on IG - what a beauty!

  5. Your Fade is gorgeous! And those socks are fun. Your dinner plans sound yummy. We are going out to a Mexican restaurant.

  6. Oh your colorplay is always so beautiful! You've got me eyeing that Fade pattern despite my better sense of practicality.
