and, in the mail yesterday, I found this wonderful kit.
Admittedly, it is not a color I would normally pick out. But it fills me with fall sunshine and a pattern that is worth knitting.
I vary on whether or not I like SOM clubs. Sometimes yes, other times not. I no longer feel obligated to knit anything that does not appeal. Kits do make such wonderful presents for other knitters that I might well keep signed up for a couple considering.
And sometimes a ray of brightness just plain cheers me up.
