Since we are snowed for the day (or days), I figured it was a good time to write a blog post. I had two appointments scheduled in the city today and I'm not pleased that I had to cancel them at the last moment, but what can you do when a blizzard hits and they close the highway. It had temporarily stopped snowing and blowing in this picture, but has since picked up again. sigh.
It's been awhile since I last posted, so I have lots to report on today. Two new projects showed up from the Mary Maxim's Knit Club of the Month and another one that I had ordered finally arrived.
The first project from the club is a Grey/White/Silver poncho.
The second project is a multi-coloured Saturate Entrelac Cowl.
The additional project I ordered is a Top Down Vest from Mary Maxim.
It's supposed to be an EASY project knitted from the top down...hence the name. I've started it and I'm already stumped...on ROW 3. I'm sure I'll figure it out, but not a great first impression. I don't have a great photo of the yarn, but it's a really rich marbled blend of colours. Hopefully, I can show that better at a later date.
In the past few weeks, I've worked on a couple of previously started projects. The first one is a multi-coloured summer clutch.
This was another project from the Mary Maxim's Knit Club of the Month. The white edging was the only thing that was outstanding and I procrastinated on doing it because I thought it was going to be difficult. It was, but not for the reasons I thought. I won't bore you with the details other than to say that the pattern was misleading and not very helpful. I don't know if I'm going to use it, though. I'm going to put it away until spring and decide then.
The other project I worked on is the shawl called Jette from Drops Design on ravelry.com.
I was using up some leftover yarn from other projects, but had run out of one colour and had to order more. Now, that I've received it I can continue. I don't have much left to complete, so I should be able to finish that up this week.
This coming week, I'm going to finish the shawl above as well as continue work on vest, if I can figure out the pattern.
