I've been working away on Rams and Yowes. There are 2 1/2 rows of sheep showing up now.
If you look closely at the right edge, you can see the some of the steek stitches -- they look a bit like a checkerboard. Once I'm done with the middle of this blanket, which is worked in the round (it's a tube), I will cut the steek stitches to make a flat piece. Yup. Sounds scary, right? I think so too!
I started another Boxy sweater, but this time in worsted weight. With the fingering weight yarn, it felt like I wasn't getting anywhere. I found this yarn in my stash -- Valley Yarns Stockbridge -- from a shopping trip to WEBS a few years ago. I was so happy to find it!
I'm actually farther along than this by now, but I haven't taken another pic of it yet.
I am slowly adding stars to my EPP quilt.
This is the bottom left corner.
A few of you asked to see me model my Walking Tour Scarf once it dried. This is as close as you're getting. lol!
I am amazed and pleased to find that once the scarf was blocked, it came out to almost exactly the stated dimensions. Nice discovery! I have the feeling that I should stick to Shetland wool when I do color work. It works so nicely for color work! The scarf is in Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift, which seems to be much more available in the US. Rams and Yowes uses Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight Shetland wool, which is much more readily available in the UK.
We've had another storm or two this past week. The storm on Wednesday/Thursday was light, fluffy, sparkly snow. So strange!
And the snow Saturday into Sunday -- well it was snow.
Luckily our snow blower, which was broken for the big storms of January, is fixed and the father type took care of all the clean up -- what a luxury not to have to shovel!! Father type took the above picture too.
Mia has been hibernating so much on the heating duct, I've started to feel like I'm missing her! This is a rare sight now.
Ah well. I'll know it's spring when Mia starts to sleep somewhere besides the heating duct!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
