I know my Colorado family is laughing, but look at our snow!
It almost covers the leaves
Just finished a pair of fingerless mitts to wear with the lace shawl I knit last year. Now I can knit in the car and still be warm.
I used a merino-mulberry silk blend from my stash. I don’t remember what project I had in mind when I originally purchased the yarn, but it worked wonderfully for the mitts.
The color is a deep red-purple so they were difficult to photograph. They have lace cuffs and an eyelet edging.
The squirrels (we have many) like using the oak trees as a highway and seem to have routes marked out.
Almost half done with my sons afghan. The colors make me think of the lake on a stormy day. I will keep plugging away and it will be finished eventually.
Hopefully sooner rather than later..
Inspired by my trip to Colorado (25 degrees), I am officially ready for cold weather.
Knit with Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock yarn using patterns from Colorwork Creations by Susan Anderson-Freed. Slightly improvised (I can’t help myself, I have to fiddle with other peoples patterns..)
The hat pattern has ear flaps, which I am still debating about. I was not pleased with my colorwork knitted flat but think knitting it in the round might make it too thick. Maybe I could knit the earflaps solid black. Hmmm.
In the meantime, I will be wearing these!
Remember the desk I found by the side of the road?
Hubby built two drawers to replace the missing ones and I threw a couple coats of paint on it.
And this is what I have now:
