Perfect Knitting Day

Today is the perfect day for knitting.  It's steadily raining.  I have the windows open so I can listen to the rain.

It's cool enough that a hot cup of coffee is needed.  The Oreos are not needed but taste delicious.

And I have two new projects on the needles.  EZ's Raglan Sweater for my hubby.  We've been together 19 years and this is the first sweater I will knit him.  I'm using Tahki New Tweed and it's working up great.

The other project I started is the Dane Shawl.  This is being made with Stricken Smitten's Smitten Boo (merino/bamboo).  I am in love with her yarn...all of them!  This is a Xmas gift for someone (shhh...secret).  I started this the same time as the sweater to offset the boring stockinette.  The sweater is great mindless TV knitting but when I have quiet time during the day I want a mindful project...and more Oreos.... :)
