The good weather peoples have predicted the possibility of flurries this afternoon. Fingers are crossed (and toes, too!) that this is the first of many storms to come to our neck of the woods.
As a way to offer help, living by example if you will, I have created my own flurries...a flurry of finished project (and the start of a few new, too). Thank you for your comments on the Pink Portrait. It's a fun scarf to wear and I love, love, love it.
Another FO that I'm completely in love with (as I am with ALL the FOs this week) is Anne's Ceilidh Lace Socks from Wooly Wonka. The yarn is a bamboo/superwash wool and it has a luminescence to it. Anne's dye job adds another layer of luminescence and is aptly named, Seashells. Aren't they as pretty as can be. (I'm all about pretty this week.)
(I've been going to the gym after work and getting home after the good light is gone, so sadly, the picture isn't that great.)
Thursday morning I decided to reorganize the stash. There were a few new yarns to put away and it felt like the right time to give the old stash a good petting. I was a bit worried there would be need to add an extra bin (I have 5), but as it turned out everything fit perfectly. The sock yarn was moved into the largest bin (no more sock yarn!), but with the removal of the Blueberry Borscht Peace Fleece, I had room in the sweater bin for some new Beaverslide. 'Catbird' just had to come and live with me after Cara posted about her new sweater. It's in marination stage.
While diving through the stash I found a very pretty Apple Pie in Cornflower Blue and decided to use it for Véronik's Long Gloves from Knitting Classic Style. Its time for a change of pace from sock knitting and blue gloves will be so bright and happy in the dead of winter.
Over the long weekend I did get a good start on my new favorite project, the Logan River Wrap from Interweave Knits Winter 2007 (designed by Mim). The yarn is Queensland Kathmandu Aran and it is so soft and luxurious. After knitting up the first ball I decided to make my wrap a bit longer and ordered two more balls for a nice long wrap (most of you won't need to do this, me thinks). This pattern is very, very easy to read, easy to knit and loads of fun. It's hard to put down, hard to work on anything else, as it's such easy, rewarding knitting. Dropping a stitch to create the undulating water rapid is a blast and just watching the pattern form is addicting. I predict another quick knit and another finish in the near future.
