Well, we had another snow storm this week. The weatherman didn't really do a good job on this one. We got snow on Thursday, but it wasn't sticking on the roads and then I woke up this morning and we had quite a bit of snow on the ground and roads with blowing winds. By 12:30 PM it was over and we were digging out. Now the roads are black. At least it gave me two days off.
This past week I was able to finish up the February Mid Month KAL. The pattern is Lacy Vines Cloth by Janet Nogle. I used a size 6 needle with Peaches and Creme yarn in light blue.
I finished the Mackintosh socks. I really love how they striped. I used size 1 one needles with a basic sock pattern. The colorway is Misty Highlands.
I also started another cowl. The pattern is called Spiral Cowl by Knitty Gritty Thoughts. I am using a size 6 needle with Madelinetosh dk in the color Sequoia. I love this yarn. I really like how this is turning out, but I swear that there are problems with the pattern. I got messed up after the first repeat of 7 rows, so I just repeated the 7th row after that for the rest of the rows.
Is anyone participating in the Ravelry Knitting Olympics? I'm not, but I found the pattern for the Olympic hat (the one the USA olympians wore at the opening ceremony) and I bought the yarn to knit this hat. This ought to be good since I have never done stranding before. I got Berroco Ultra Alpaca in red, white and blue.
I also got a skein of 100% superwash yarn dyed up by Scouts Swag in the Olympic medals colorway. This will be great for a pair of socks.
Last but not least, I got my February Rubber Ducky club shipment. The yarn is pima petite in raspberry vanilla. Massage body oil in Vanilla berry and Mimi soap in raspberry vanilla. How cool!
