Snowing ------again!

Must. Stop. Now.

It started as rain yesterday.  Was raining hard until one PM.  By 3PM it was snowing. Sticking to the grass and cars. I mean this most sincerely: Ick!

Cascade 220 is wonderful to knit with

This is such a smooth and soft yarn yet strong enough to keep its shape.  The scarf is looking great.

Bought yarn today at All About Yarn

Yesterday at Joann Fabrics I bought Knitsimple magazine and really liked scarf 9, the Checkerboard Scarf.  With the shop owner's help I bought Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash PAINTS in yellows.  I also bought Feza Yarn Alp Premier in blues and yellows.  This should look great when worked up.

Non sequitur: I want to be at the beach.

I finished Fox Forest by The Workbasket today!  I stitched the zero before realizing it was the zero for the year.  I needed a one. LOL

Started May I by All Through the Night

I started this last night and worked on it almost all day. :)  It's going quickly since it is not on black.

Went to the LNS today

 Snow, sleet and ice are on the way tonight.  Had to get more projects because I'd hate to not have anything to stitch. LOL.

I bought Merry Eweies by Homespun Elegance, It's Snowing Men! by Just Nan, and the one I'm going to start stitching tonight: May I by All Through the Night.  I must say that I consider the fabric choice of WDW Onyx to be a typo.  I am using Copper Penny.

ACK!! A frog!!

It's hideous! Fortunately for me, although the entire design had to be ripped out, it was only 12 stitches.
