Greetings from a snow covered house with a really happy kid in it. Actually, he’s outside enjoying day two free from school. It was a lovely snow, light and fluffy and easy to clean up.
I just finished knitting a lovely cowl by Anne Hanson called Sculling Cowl and I did it in a week. That’s record time for me. As I sit and type it has had a bath and is upstairs in my guest room blocking. I hope to wear it to knit night tonight. I used our newest yarn, Yankee Posh, and boy was it just a pleasure. Yankee Posh is a lovely 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere and 10% Nylon base that is just so yummy. Once you feel it, you just have to have it. You know, yarn crack!!
So with that project coming to a quick end, I needed something else to knit pronto. I have become a pretty monogamous knitter of late, so I don’t have anything else on the needles. I have things planned, but they are big things like another sweater in fingering weight yarn and a shawl in lace and I really want something easy and mindless….enter the K I T.
I love having a couple of kits on hand for exactly this type of situation. I have a confession, I have four (4), so I have options!! A knitter always needs options. I am also in a major cowl phase and I am about to scratch an itch that I’ve been ignoring….Chevrons! They are back in a big way and my little cashmere cowl is going to be chevrons. What a happy accessory it will be!!
I also got some dying in and updated our shop. Take a look….
I hope you have a wonderful day. Tonight is knit night so you know I am happy!
See you soon,
