I really had a great Thanksgiving, especially since I had quit my job. It just wasn’t working out for me and I was having blood pressure issues. So, I guess my body was telling me to take time to smell the roses and stay home. I am enjoying it immensely. I get to do what I want (knit and read) and what I am really looking forward to is sitting at home and watch it snow. I won’t have to worry if I should stay home or go into work.
I have been knitting. I finished the November Mid Month Dishcloth KAL. The pattern is called Fire N Ice by Janet Nogle. I used Peaches and Crème yarn in Premium Passion and Delft Blue with a size 6 needle. This was a fun knit and it turned out really nice.
I also completed the Purl Ridge Scarf. It’s a scarf that is knit in the round. The pattern is by Stephen West. I really like his designs. I used a size 8 needle with Madelinetosh dk yarn in the oxblood color way.
I really enjoy knitting cowls, so I bought yarn to make more. I got Rowan Lima in a grey and purple color way.
Rowan Drift in a grey color way. I think I am on a grey kick.
Also, Araucania Panguipulli yarn to make a Mobius scarf in a blue/teal color way.
And I bought more Baby Ull yarn by Dale of Norway to get ready to knit more calendar scarves. I still have to block the last one I knit and will have to post a picture once it’s blocked. I got a green color (9013)
and a grey color (0007).
I have much knitting to keep me busy during the winter months don’t I?
