I'm back--better late than never, RIGHT?
Hey all, last week I was holed up in downtown Chicago as I had to work two days in the city. I live 50 (!) miles away and the expressways I would have to traverse are BOTH under construction. Needless to say, I imposed on my friend Rena (Hi Rena!) to let me stay in her apartment near Navy Pier. Fun! Anyway, I don't have any new pictures of the progress I made on my socks (a LOT) but here is a picture of the yarn that I will be using to knit Snowflakes in Cedarwoods by Anne Hanson:
That is Perchance to Knit in Violets and Ice that I purchased from The Loopy Ewe. I ADORE this yarn (using it currently for Icarus in Harlot's Peacock)-not only is it gorgeously dyed, you get a crystal stitch marker with each skein of yarn! And how can you go wrong with silk and merino? Anyway, I still need to finish my Bee Fields before I start the Snowflakes shawl! Can you tell I like Anne's patterns?
Next week I should have some sock pictures and HOPEFULLY a finished Icarus in for my mom in time for Mom's Day. Wish me luck!
