I know that if you live anywhere in the mid-west or north you are really tired of snow. But we haven’t had any substantial snowfall this year – a couple of ice/slush storms that melted right away. But yesterday we finally got some real snow…and it is so pretty. Fortunately, I was working from home anyway, so I got to enjoy it without worrying about driving in it. And the roads are clear today, so I get to enjoy it again while I drive without worrying about anything. The perfect snow storm!
Knitspot has a new pattern out – Gale. Of course, I bought it immediately – and spent the night looking at my stash to see what I wanted to use (I know, I know – Cobblestone is sitting there – but its almost spring now and what’s the point of a sweater?). I finally picked out the yarn, and started it yesterday. I did the border and got to the third row on the pattern when I realized that it was the same pattern as Gust (I am really quick on the uptake, eh?). I was shocked – I had no idea that it was just a bigger version. I was a little disappointed (ok, I was a lot disappointed and may have ranted for a few minutes to Opal and Chris) – I liked Gust, but I just finished it and I don’t usually just repeat patterns right away. So I let it sit for the rest of the day – I couldn’t decide if I should frog it or not. I liked how it was knitting up, and I love the yarn. But still…I just finished it!
I’m still undecided – but I worked on it this morning…what do you think?
This is Lorna’s Laces Helens Lace and the colorway is Lakeview. I love this yarn – its a silk/wool blend, and it is just so nice to work with. And the colors are so pretty – for some reason it reminds me of Easter eggs…
So what do you think? Frog it? Finish it?
I will say that when I went through my laceweight stash I realized that most of it is blue, or varigated with blue. I need to branch out and buy some new colors. Anything but blue!
I bought some roving this morning – gorgeous stuff. I’ll show you when I get it – I’ve had a hankering to spin lately, and I think this will be the roving that gets me back into it!
OK, I’m off to lunch and then knitting group….I hope you have a great Saturday!
