Well, in a world where every other day we get a blanket of white this knitter is fighting back with some blankets of a different kind!
I am working on blankets – the Manos Four Season Throw – in lovely Autumnal colors… This is for the knit along that Country Needle Works is having this year – so I am finished with my first block… just in time for February’s installment will be due!
And, this week I cast on Brooklyn Tweed’s Lovely Hemlock Ring Blanket with some Cascade 129 that I got at Mecca in the most lovely dark orange shade. This is incredibly genius – and I would never have thought to do something so creative at to take a doily pattern and knit it from a bulky weight yarn. I am loving this knit – and Heidi saw the blanket tonight. I think if I don’t watch this one – it will wander off with her!
And – since it is so dratted cold out – my dear friend Susan is in need of some warmth… so I will be working on that this weekend.
Now, back to the books – I have a big test tomorrow.
