A Month of Favorites: Wrap Up

Posting my favorite things this month really got me thinking about the small things that make my life happier. Sometimes it feels like a real challenge to look beyond a bad day or job that you don't much care for and glean the goodness from your life. Good things can be as small as Halloween stitch markers or as complex and large as an entire knitting group. This week has been a real trial to me and my family and part of what helped me through it was the support and love of my friends and family both near and far. As we enter the Holiday season it's important to take time to appreciate what we have, to spend time with our families and friends, and to relish the small things as well as the large. On that note, I'll leave you with yet another smorgasbord of my favorite things! Don't forget to check back next Tuesday for the final two drawings for my month of favorites. 

Wes Anderson films. 

The Coen Brothers movies.

1970s punk rock.

Lounge music.

Dance scenes in movies.

The feeling of casting on a new knitting project! The feeling of binding off a knitting project! 

I'm so glad to be a part of the knitting community and to meet wonderful people from all over the country and the world. Thanks for joining me for a month of my favorite things!


  1. I am sorry that you have been going through some crud lately, Erin.
    But I am glad that you have the support you need, right now.
    I have enjoyed your month of favorites so much. I selfishly wish every month was your month of favs.

  2. I am new at reading your blog and a huge fan so far. I loved the month of favorites as well and also I love your knitted projects. You are the reason I am going to attempt to knit a pair of socks for myself:).
