My love of zig zags has reasserted itself in herringbone. I just can't seem to shake my obsession with the wonderful rhythm of the pattern. I have a pattern lurking around in my head that I want to get down on paper and start knitting. I even have the yarn in my stash, thank goodness! One of the great advantages of a large stash.
This beautifully hand-dyed yarn is older than my marriage by one week - I got it at the Taos Sheep & Wool Festival in October 2005.

Looking through some of my 2010 travel photos I found this one from Bruges that I love so much.

I also happen to see the pattern every morning in my bathroom - I had my shower tiled in herringbone pattern when we renovated the second floor of our house. It makes me unreasonably happy considering it is just tile work!
