Part of the reason I love living in this area is because I like the seasonality. I need it in a way. The seasons give my life an organic kind of structure that just feels right. There's a sense of order to what I cook, and what I eat and what I knit. This time of year, when it's cold and dreary, I crave comfort food -- and comfort knitting. I want warm and snuggly. I want Umaro.
