Sometimes life keeps you so busy that it's time to choose something extremely comfortable to knit. Something that you can just knit a stitch after another and not think of anything at all, even for a short while. It's time for Madelinetosh and Veera Välimäki. 

Pattern: Line Break by Veera Välimäki (Ravelry)
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, heartbeat
Needles: 3.5 mm
2 skeins

If I had to name one color that would describe me the most it would be this: heartbeat.
