I haven’t blogged in days because I was waiting for Andrew to send me the pictures from the weekend – I forgot my camera so I had to use his. I’ve reminded him, nagged him…and still no pictures. So I can’t show you anything about the weekend – but we had a very good time. The game was a lot of fun (but a little rainy) – I’ve never been to a college game, and we sat in the student section so it was very loud and um….spirited. We really had a good time – its too bad that we haven’t gone before – I think we’ll definitely go again! We went to a really good brew pub for dinner where I had very good beer (I’m normally more of a wine person but the beer was great!). All in all, a very nice weekend, and a nice get away.
It has beem so cold here this week – it was 32 degrees the other morning when I was walking to work from the train. I have a new scarf – but I really need some mittens. I decided that I’d make Peekaboo mittens (Ravelry link) – the opening will be convenient. The pattern calls for either DK or worsted weight. I had both – but nothing that went with the new scarf. So I thought about it and decided that I’d make a scarf to go with the mittens. Went to the stash, went to Ravelry – and I finally found the right pattern for this yarn – only took three tries
This is My So Called Scarf and it is the perfect pattern for Malabrigo. And it is the perfect pattern for train knitting. And I love this scarf.
I started it last night, and it was hard to put down. I’m going to make this and then make matching mittens – I think I may modify the mitten pattern to use the stitch pattern from the scarf because I think it would look nice – and I love the pattern – I wonder if this would make a good sock pattern?
Isn’t that nice? It is so soft – and it will keep me warm. I can’t wait for this to be done so I can start the mittens. And I’m really looking forward to having warm hands in the morning!
Work has been insanely busy – but I’m taking some vacation next week because my mother is visiting from California (I think the cold weather is going to be a shock for her). I have to work on my vacation, but hopefully that will be kept to a minimum, and I’ll have a chance to finish some knitting.
OK, off to knit the scarf – have a great rest of the week!
