wip: seahawk nillas

Sometimes you just need some vanilla socks. I celebrate this pair of socks as the project I took with me to work to introduce this interest to my coworkers. They welcomed my stitching during longer meetings!

yarn swift

I finally purchased a yarn swift. Nick’s pretty happy to know that he won’t be asked to sit through holding a hank for me anymore—not that he complained much about it (or has been asked that often to do it either). I feel a little bit more like a legit knitter now.

I'll try not to think about how a dark wood variety of this swift was made available on Knitpicks just days after I received this order. Of course the better looking one would show up after I commit to a product!

current candle i

When I moved to the new apartment, I made an arbitrary policy a few months ago to only buy and burn one candle at a time. The purchase of a new one is often very special to me so I figured it would be nice to share what's burning right now.
This one's by Enlighten, a candle maker based in Arizona. The scent's called Caribbean Teakwood, and I got it for around $25 at my nearest Whole Foods..
I love teas with hints of black tea or sandalwood, so this one's a no-brainer. Nick and I had a laugh about how this scent was coded as a 'masculine' one on their line. Wood, tobacco scents = Men!

I burn my candles nearly every day, so I notice a candle of this size will last me about 3-4 weeks...maybe even less if I really enjoy the scent.
Do you have a favorite candle business? Please let me know!
