Well, we are in the middle of two storms. Today we had snow mixed with freezing rain and now there is a lull in the weather, but late tonight or early tomorrow morning, we will be getting an ice storm. Needless to say, I have been knitting away. Perfect weather for it. I just hope that we don’t lose power.
I finally finished the Moebius scarf that I was working on. I was using Araucania Panguipulli in color 5. I used size 10 needles. I really enjoyed this knit and learned a lot about moebius. I will definitely try knitting something again using this method. This is really nice and warm around the neck.
I also completed the Basic Sock I was working on using Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the pullman colorway. I used a size 1 needle for this sock.
I did start another basic sock using String Theroy Colorworks Continuum sock in Galactic Ghoul. I really love this yarn. It is nice and soft.
I was really glad that I got into the CookieA sock club. I wasn’t going to try, but it’s CookieA and I’m sure the patterns will be great as well as the yarn. I’m also participating in the Loopy Ewe club, which is a three month club. I will try the three month club and decide if I want to stay in after that. I am debating about the String Theory sock club. She is going to open up memberships in February. I have time to make up my mind about that one.
I am still working on the Mushishi (Plymouth Yarns) cowl in color 09. This yarn is really fun to knit. I am using size 9 needles.
Still frogging some old WIP’s that I didn’t see me finishing, but I did start up on the Leaf Lace Scarf that I started several years ago. I have an incentive, since one of my Yahoo Dishcloth groups is having a scarf KAL. You can knit any scarf, so I am knitting this for the month of February and hopefully will finish it. I will post pictures of this on my next blog post.
Stay warm and safe. Only 46 more days until spring and hopefully the Groundhog won’t see his shadow tomorrow.
