Happy Winter Solstice | Sock It To Me Monday

I made a new wintry project bag to celebrate the winter solstice.

It’s quilting cotton lined with linen.

I didn’t have much ribbon to choose from, and although I would have liked something gold or silver, this ribbon has sheep. If you look closely at this pic you will see a sewing error. I didn’t notice it until I finished sewing the lining in. I decided to leave it since it’s just for me. I still love it, and of course I will know to check that seam next time when I assemble the pieces.

Project Bag sewing pattern is Drawstring Bag (Etsy link)

But what’s in the project bag, you may ask? And I’m glad you did.

It’s my Aurora Borealis Cowl! (Ravelry link)

Today’s Winter Solstice HoliDaily share is Norrland by Sarah Huntington Birch. (Ravelry link) If you could turn the Winter Solstice into a hat, I think this is it. I’ve shared this pattern before as I love to look at it. But I think if I were going to knit something this extraordinary, I would hang it on my wall. In fact, I might do that.

I’m almost to the toe of my first Christmas sock! I think Santa approves.

Moondrake Yarn Advent Day 21. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to work our twinkly twilightly icicle lights into a photo since December 1! I finally did it it. Happy Winter Solstice!
