Our weekend starts on Saturday and rolls through Monday in the winter. So today is technically still a weekend day but I wanted to pop over and say hello to you all. Our weekend (so far) has been filled with homemade nettle chai (adapted a bit to replace the black tea with nettle, rooibus, and raspberry leaf. Yum.), visits with old friends, lots of knitting, plenty of quiet, and lazy afternoons spent snuggled up reading on the couch.
I cast off the stash mittens last night (here they are on Ravelry if you need details) and joyfully wore them out into the cold this morning. Cozy! Today we've been reading our favorite wild edibles books, dreaming of spring, and spending the day in a long string of serial-crafting: watercolor. paper crafting. sewing. knitting…
I do hope your weekend was filled with sweetness and pleasure of your own making. Right now I'm late for a (ridiculously adorable) Lupine-made game of "pin the crown on the princess". I'm off to play! Happy Monday, friends.

Homemade Nettle Chai? How wonderful! And your mittens are beautiful. I aspire to make to make mittens (I have a schmatta on the needles now).
Lovely game and photos!
Its wonderful. I make a big batch every two days or so. And the nettle is a great source of minerals.
I thought I recognised that pattern – I have had it in my queue at Ravelry for far too long! They look lovely, I think I am inspired to cast-on…just need to look in my stash! 😀
