Mother Nature Strikes Again....And Some Knitting
Well, Mother Nature has really let us have it the last two days... and I want to thank her for a couple days off because I don't leave my house when the weather gets this nasty.
This is the view from my kitchen window...
And this is out my front door, there is a driveway and road out there somewhere.
I started a couple new lace projects. This is the Lily of the Valley Scarf from Knitted Lace of Estonia (Nancy Bush). I'm sorry you can't see my 5-stitch nupps very well, but they are there. I'm knitting this in Knit Picks Palette - Nutmeg.
From the same book - this is the Raha Scarf. Knit in Panda Silk.
Monica thought she had lost her knitting mojo, but it was soon found again and this is her latest (I'm so privileged to be her test knitter) Lauren. Lots of cabley fun. Sorry the picture isn't so great, Monica wrote this to be knit on circulars and since I don't knit my socks on circulars I had to arrange the stitches to best set up the center design and it makes for wonky pictures. The snakey cables frame the center cable.
Well, that's all I have for this month. Happy knitting!
