We woke up to a good four inches of real snow in north Texas this morning.
And the snowshoes are in Colorado …
But don’t let the fluffy powder fool you, there is a solid inch of ice underneath, making driving (or walking) treacherous.
Snowy day knitting, a sock yarn cowl:
I am doing some pattern writing and swatching since it is too cold to get outside today.
Snow day in Texas:
My grandson started college in Colorado last fall. It is snowy and cold there, so he requested a long blue and gray scarf.
I found a simple crochet pattern that is reversible, appearing blue on one side and gray on the other. It worked up quickly in Knit Picks Swish (washable wool) and I think it looks very masculine.
Stay warm Mike!
Some one asked me why I was knitting with earrings.
These are hands down the nicest stitch markers I have ever used. They are from Miss Babs Fiber. And they do look like cute little earrings.
Lesson learned: do not put a towel in the washer to assist in the felting process.
You will be picking pieces of terry cloth out of your knitting for HOURS!!
I chose a felted bag since I have only one skein of wool to work with. The pattern is Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick, available free from Interweave.
My daughter brought home a lovely skein of 100% wool from her trip to Ireland this past summer. She knows her mother well!
