I used Miss Babs Sojourn in Coos Bay (light blue), Blackwatch (darker blue), and Sable. I did run low on the Coos Bay, which is why the interesting mix of blues toward the top on the lace section. It was a fun knit though! I really enjoyed having an interesting row to knit among the straight stockinette rows as I knitted along. Plus the color changes.
Here is a pile of my knitted woolies for warmth:
If you work your way from top to bottom, they are the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl, the Moebius cowl from Vogue Knitting, the Walking Tour Scarf, and the Wear With All Stole.
I didn't work on my Fussy Cut Friday star quilt this past Friday. I was too busy chipping at the thick layer of ice that formed on the driveway from the first part of the multi-day storm Tuesday into Wednesday, plus more snow on top of the ice crust (at least an inch or two thick). We actually got stuck on the driveway once on Thursday after the second storm, the ice was so bad. Here is a pic of me with the ice chipper that the father type took to show how high the snow piles are along the driveway. I'm 5' 2" so that will give you an idea.
Anyway, my hands and finger muscles get so sore from the ice chipping that I can't hold a needle to sew. So knitting was the answer, thank goodness! It's nice that knitting doesn't require gripping something. lol!
I heard somewhere that we've gotten something like 52" of snow this year. Nothing compared to the almost record (or maybe they've reached the record?) 106" or so of snow in Boston. But it's still way too much. And the ice was even worse. (It started out as slush, and then froze. Ugh.)
The father type and I braved the end of the snow storm on Thursday to go into NYC for a concert.
Here are a few sights we saw along the way.
Ice on the Hudson out the train window.
Verdi Square in the snow.
A view of the lobby from the waiting area outside the loge.
A glimpse of the Beacon Theatre from the loge. A really pretty theatre!
Mia has been coming out of hibernation from the end of the storm on Thursday on. It's like having her back from a long absence. lol!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week! And that we all thaw out where such is needed desperately! Come on spring!
