A Taste of Winter
When the snowflakes fell yesterday they were the amazing kind that makes the world look beautiful. Big huge soft flakes fell for awhile while Al and I were out shopping.
If you want a taste of knit success head over to MajorKnitters blog. Jennifer finished a sweater coat that can only be described as amazing.
If you want another taste of knit success head over to Grace's blog and see her latest shawl. How you ladies knit up these masterpieces, is really inspiring.
Al has cast on for a lace shrug that is going to be lovely. She was able to knit her lace shrug while we watched MOONSTRUCK yesterday. I don't know how to do this. Anything more than a few row repeat takes my full, 100% uninterrupted concentration to succeed.
I saw a Pine Street Inn blanket on someone's blog while I was surfing this week. It made me toy with the thought of 9 inch squares and a blanket. Over the course of the year, I could probably make one. Because color choices overwhelm me, I started thinking about a kit. Have you ever purchased a kit for a project? How did it go?
