I had last posted about some trouble I had with a yarn order I recently placed – an important one. I decided to remove the post in the interest of trying not be negative during the holidays. I didn’t say or think anything mean, I just bemoaned my disappointment at a problem – granted a pretty big problem, but one that has been fixed completely, and I’m completely elated about that. And so, let’s move on…
Winter has taken up permanent residence here – at least for now – and the cold has been wreaking havok with my sinuses. Saline & my humidifier help tremendously, but I always worry that I might be more susceptible to catching cold when my sinuses are like this. I’ll be dosing up on my echinacea & golden seal just to be on the safe side. I have so much to do in the next few months – I just can not afford to get sick now.
Um, who *can* afford to get sick? Yeah.
Anyway… here’s one FO; – a lovely little cabled hat for my adorable nephew:
….made from Cascade 220 Superwash, which feels softer knit up than it does in ball form….and two WIPs; the matching red reversible-cable scarf:
…and a Morehouse Bilbao scarf: here’s mine so far:
My Bilbao is made from Knit Picks ‘Shadow’ Kettle Dyed lace weight yarn in ‘Soot’. I had to double it, since this stuff is about as thick as dental floss, and STILL, it’s taking forever. Maybe because I made mine wider than the pattern called for, with a finer yarn? Hmm. The yarn is lovely & soft, and the color is ever so slightly variegated (kettle dyed). It’s really lovely.
Sorry, my iphone pics are not the best – I have to dig out the digital camera & start using that.
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged properly – Thanksgiving kinda took it out of me, but I’m fully recovered now. And here is a hint of things to come: there’s a nice little giveaway in your future!
