Winter Solstice

Tomorrow (Saturday, December 21) marks one of my favorite days of the year — the winter solstice. It means that each day will finally get longer, if only infinitesimally. It means that even though we still have months of cold and snow ahead of us, there will be more sunlight. That’s good news for those of us knitting with dark yarns.

To celebrate, I’d like to give away a book. Respond to this post by midnight Saturday (the darkest of the darkest days) and tell me which of my physical books (sorry, digital books are not eligible) you’d like. I’ll use a random-number generator to choose a winner from the responses.


There’s nothing better than a good knitting project to brighten up a cold, dark day!
