Happy New Year!
Now that the holiday rush is over knitting begins in earnest. I'm dedicated to finishing Rosedale so that I can wear on the one or two cold days that we get occasionally. Growing up I can remember needing gloves, scarves, hats and coats here in SC. Now it I rarely need any of them.
I more likely to throw on a sweater and a pair of gloves without a second thought to grabbing a jacket. This strange phenomenom is due I'm sure to the increase in age and the decrease in hormomes. It certainly makes driving and riding in a car much easier.
Rosedale became a little tedious for a while. The yoke is almost finished and since the sweater is a raglan knitted in once piece, all that will remain to be completed is the collar and the front borders.
The colors are way off!!! The blue is actually a shade of lavendar and greens are yellow-greens, olive tones. I love the natural color and will try to get some true color picks when the sweater is complete.
I cast-on for the Alpine Knit Scarf from Victorian Lace Today. It's mom's Xmas present so I'd better hurry up and get it finished. I'm late for the second year in a row, but with all the unpacking and cooking I did during the holidays she's letting me slide once again. She had her "good" knee scoped on Dec. 19th and I became the official Xmas and New Years Eve/Day chef.
For the next couple of weeks it's going to be slow and easy going here at Chez Fiberitis.
