Silver White Winters

I started this series in May of last year, put it on hold after the first post, and then picked it back up at the first of this year. With this post, I will run out of My Favorite Things lyrics, so that's a good time to put the series to rest. I hope you've enjoyed this, because I have!

One more round of favorite things...get ready, because this one's long!
Love WWOO--the books, the movie, all!
Guinness on tap at our local pub
my avocado plant grown from a seed

nasturtiums

and, of course, figs!

This blog is called Figknits because of the Gaelic Figheadh (knitting, weaving) which is also the name of one of my pattern lines, and it fits also because I happen to really like figs. As a child I enjoyed figs from my Nana's trees and there were always delicious fig preserves around at both grandparents', usually served with warm buttermilk biscuits and butter--another of my favorites. I would have that every day for breakfast if I could escape the threat of sure pudginess. Note the redundancy of butterfat. Good thing I love healthy breakfasts just as much, huh?

Now, tell me some of your favorite things...I'm all ears!

Thanks, Pumpkin! I'm so glad you've been following along. It was fun to do and was a nice, low-key post to do on Mondays...when my brain isn't working so well. :-)
