It sure has gotten colder in Toronto. We had the first snowfall of the winter season here in Toronto on Sunday and there is still a little bit of snow on the ground now to remind us winter is coming.
We put up the Christmas tree at my parent's house this weekend and attended a Santa Claus parade it was so nice catching up with them and sharing in some of our usual Christmas traditions. I was able to squeeze a bit of knitting into our busy weekend by the Christmas tree which was lovely.

Today I participated in my first yarn along by posting on Instagram and now on my blog. I have seen other knitters post what they are reading and knitting and thought it was a fun idea. If you want to also participate in Yarn Along, you can upload your picture of a book and what you are knitting by following the link below.
I am knitting baby booties for charity and got started on one today. I have finished it now and it is pretty adorable but I will post a photo when both booties are completed. I used a pattern from a Youtube channel One Hook & Two Needles and the video is called "0-3 Month Booties - Beginners Knitted Version 2" if you want to check it out! I am currently reading Homeward Bound by Emily Matchar it was recommended by another knitter I follow on Instagram so I decided to give it a try. It is pretty good so far and it is interesting to read about a movement towards domesticity that I have noticed that people of all ages are engaged in, and people in their twenties (like myself) are interested in things such as knitting and making their own jam and blog about it. I am loving it so far!
Thank you as always for joining me in this space and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
