My first FO of the new year. An Irish Hiking Scarf for a friend who is spending the rest of the winter in London. Sadly I didn't finish before she left so this scarf will take a long trip in a FedEx box.
I am just amazed at the weather we are having. It is so surreal outside. From what I understand closer to downtown Seattle the snow is pretty much non-existant but in my little Burien world it is a winter wonderland. It snowed again today for most of the day.
This is the view from my knitting spot in the living room
I am not getting as much knitting done as I would like to. My husband and daughter BOTH have an intestinal flu. Not fun. I have spent most of the day cleaning my home, doing laundry and dishes which yes is rewarding but I would rather be sitting with my view and a fire.
In knitting news I feel like I have so many WIPs to work on. Corey I AM working on the sweater ;). I must confess I lost a skein of yarn I have NO CLUE where it went so I am tracking down more. Worst case I finish the front and back and the arms, hood and button band are in a different yarn.
I am now working on a Quidditch sweater for Riley. It is actually coming along very fast. I picked up some Cascade 220 for it and I am using Ann Bud's sweater book which is very nice to follow. I might make myself a sweater from this book later this year. I am doing the seamless raglan sweater.
Also, like a knitting dummy I cast on for another pair of socks when I already have two on the needles. I don't believe I have formally announced but this is going to be my "Year of Socks". More details later in an "official" post but pretty much I want to knit myself a month's worth of socks this year. I have been collecting sock yarn over the past few months and I believe I have about 2 weeks worth of socks in yarn. The other day I picked up some Great Adirondack Yarn Company Silky Sock yarn at my favorite LYS. I can't wait to cast on with this yarn.
Well the laundry machine is calling.....happy knitting!
