On my knitting
I have been spending a lot of time going through my knitting books and magazines to find a pattern for this beautiful merino wool from Debbie Bliss. I originally bought it for a ribbed cardigan from one of her books, but now I think the cardigan will be too slouchy and shapeless for my taste. I have at least 4 patterns in the running when I make up my mind I'll let you know. I have come to the conclusion that I am very attracted to Shirley Paden and Norah Gaughan designs.
Two of the designs I just love are from Vogue Knitting Fall 2008
and Vogue Knitting Winter 2008/2009
In between winter knitting projects I have been working in my version of Knitty's Shetland Shorty. The yarn is a cotton, Filati FF Sailor, that I bought by the bag at Elann sometime last spring. I love the way it is turning out, I think the lace pattern is very pretty. I have ripped it out quite a few times, you really have to pay attention when knitting it.

Today the temperatures reached the high 50's WooHoo!!!!So we took a walk in one of our county parks, you can see how cold it is has been even though snow and ice were melting everywhere, the lake in its majority remained frozen.
I hope you had a sunny day!
