I made this

The only thing I’m going to say today about the sweater I’m wearing below is this: I MADE it. I want to talk more about the process and how to get started with knitting later, but for now I’m just going to bask in the afterglow of a finished project. One reason I love knitting is that I’m really passionate about handmade clothes. And clothes you can make yourself? Even better.

I was lucky enough to inherit my great-grandmother’s engagement ring when James and I decided to get married. The original setting is still in place except for two bands that were added to strengthen the ring. It’s one my most beloved possessions. The only thing is that I’m terrified that since the setting is so old (it’s from the late 1800s) that something will come loose and I’ll lose a stone. I also work with my hands a lot making jewelry and I always catch the ring on things. I recently put the ring in storage and I’ve been wanting a simple diamond band to wear on my ring finger since it’s just a little more comfortable. These simple diamond bands from Vrai & Oro are quite appealing. And, if you don’t already know about this brand, they offer fine jewelry without the markup which is pretty spectacular. They’re offering free shipping now through Valentine’s Day.

spring in winter

Would you believe me (given the amount of snow on the ground right now) that I took these photos just a few day ago? Colorado weather can be just so strange…60 degrees in the middle of winter followed by a 30 degree temperature drop and snow. Oh well, I just try to enjoy each twist as it comes. Every time in snows I just get excited about knitting projects (I just finished my first sweater, more on that soon) and cozying in. I’ve recently taken to sending handwritten letters, which is a great cold evening activity. The outfit below, on the other hand, just screams spring to me. I’ll take a little spring in the middle of the winter, even if it’s just for a day. :)

I finally found the leather jacket that I’ve been searching for. Meet the Madewell Washed Motorcycle Jacket. It’s incredibly soft, the cut is perfect (not too cropped and not too long) and the longer sleeves allow lots of styling possibilities (with the arms scrunched up or long). I’m clearly a fan and I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of this pretty little jacket on me.

It feels so unnatural that I’m writing this blog post as Colorado gears up for a big winter storm. The truth is I can’t help but drool over the warm-weather arrivals popping up on Madewell. Hope you guys enjoy your weekend!
