Rays of Light, Mojo and Little Loves...


These beautiful rays of sunlight on a frosty morning foretold a beautiful day to come... full of sunshine and warmth... I loved it!


And, the knitting mojo... well, it's getting there. Though there may have been an incident of backing out a few rows... I'm just sayin'...

This alpaca is SOOOOO soft.  I think I am going to love this one!  (I hope.  I seem to have a love-hate relationship with sweaters... we'll see.)


Then, there were a couple of SWEET, SWEET Valentine's that arrived a little late, but not a bit less appreciated!!

I hope some beautiful rays of sunlight shine on your life today... and wish warmer days for those in the extreme cold.

The rays of sunlight through the trees are beautiful, but I am sure that the real sunlight for you was the beautiful cards!! How lovely! xx

Your knitting mojo is back and I can't wait to see the finished piece. It's looking yummy, so soft.
Love your sweet little cards, such treasures. That would make my week!!

I love love letters like those..

That stitch..es..my first manager Rosemarie Faber was a fine knitter like you..I have seen something made by her that looked like that♥

Christine said...

Seeing those precious cards is enough "ray of sunshine" for me right now.
Don't you just love the hand writing?
Do you keep all their art work, like I do? Can't let go.

Sandy said...

Love your work in progress but as the others have commented, those valentine's cards are beyond precious. As I type this it is 3 degrees here in NC. Brrrr!!!
Blessings on your day!

Cute cards! They sign their names well. It looks like a lot of sunshine at your house! It's so cold here, but the bright sun makes it not seem so bad.

It looks a lovely pattern, I love alpaca too. I have some lovely balls of it in my stash which are quite possibly just there for stroking purposes only!

What a beautiful shot of the sun's rays shining through the trees. It does warm the soul, doesn't it? What cute little love letters. That would warm my soul, too! Our temps, today, are the lowest it's been all winter, I believe. It's a balmy 28 right now. We don't get many days like this. That's what sweaters are for, right? ;)

What a beautiful photo with the streams of light coming through the trees! Wish you could have been with my daughter and I too when we took a class on hand dyeing our own yarn.

Dewena said...

Did you realize that the snowy field pictured seems to duplicate your knitting texture?

I have a grandson named Alex too, only he is a big 21.

Glad you're back to clicking those needles, Tanna! Looks like a very pretty pattern also. Our valentines are even later as we thought we'd mailed them in Florida and found them in our suitcase when we got home. Early for next year, maybe?

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Oh what a lovely project you are working on. So glad you are back to knitting. Blessings to you always sweet friend.

Kerin said...

Beautiful picture... you captured the light shining through the trees just perfectly!

What wonderful and sweet Valentines... you sure are loved.

I keep sending my creative knitting and crocheting friends to your blog. They are as impressed as I am with your talents! You always make such beautiful things.

The sweater is coming along beautifully!

So lucky to have warm weather. It was -3 this morning when I gor up. The windchill factor feels -13! Schools had a two hour dely just so it would warm up a bit for children to stand at bus stop. Brrrrrrr

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

That sweater looks like it's going to be beautiful. It's beginning "vest" stage is charming, too. =)

Sorry about the late valentine arrival. You know my relationship with the post office. LOL!

So thankful for the rays of sunshine on a crisp, cold morning. I'm grateful that even though we've had highs in the teens, we've had sunshine streaming down on us. Makes it a hair more bearable. =)

Love you! xoxo

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, That sunshine sure looks good!!
It is cold here. The promise of spring keeps everything in focus.
The sweater is very gentle and pretty looking.
Thank you for the warm wishes and have a beautiful weekend. xoxo Catherine
