Seems my previous template with WordPress was no longer being supported, so this is the updated version. I’m a little cranky about the header; on the preview, that black “fabric” box isn’t there. Oh well. Otherwise, I’m very happy with the new template, and with Google Chrome. I just started using it yesterday, and I’m a fan. I hope it will work on my ancient computer at work…
We interrupt this post report to announce that FINALLY, we’re having a snow day! It’s still snowing nice and hard here, so enjoy a photo from last month’s snow. It’ll likely be gone by nightfall if it warms up and this beautiful snow turns to rain, but we’ve already been out and enjoyed it so that’s okay.
What do you do on a snow day? The Knight has to get in the hot tub and let snow fall on his bare head. The fur-girls have to rip and race until Gretchen starts to shiver. Me? I just like to watch the pure, white blanket cover up everything in sight. At the moment, I have Gg pressed against my leg, Sissy’s snoring a few inches beyond her, and I have a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts‘ mint coffee at hand. I’m also catching up on Charmed. It’s one of the few series I record, and when WE tv stops airing it every weekday, I might cry.
Oh yeah. That finished object report… I did title the post accordingly!
Meet Blue Bugga Grace. I cast on July 4th and finished December 29th, but it’s a much faster knit than those dates imply.
Pattern: Cinnamon Grace is a happy little pattern, but have you ever seen blue cinnamon? Me neither. Besides, I started this project back when I was trying to do Project Spectrum.
Yarn: I couldn’t resist the Sanguine Gryphon’s Skinny Bugga! in blue stink bug. Now, I’ve never seen a blue stink bug, but we sure were over-run by the brown ones here. It seems that 10% cashmere isn’t enough to really make a yarn irresistible to Gretchen, but I’m not taking any chances. The hue was yummy, and the yarn was a joy to knit with.
Needles: US #2 circs. I think for a change, perhaps I should have gone up a size. My scarf didn’t block out nearly as wide/long as the one in the pattern photos. Oh well. I still love it!
Verdict: Great firehouse project. It was truly mindless and easy to pick up after I hadn’t touched it in weeks. It’s going to look fabulous with my grey winter coat.
Snow update: Even the City fire engines are marking out of service to put on chains. CHAINS. On March 5th. I love it!!
