This winter has been rough. Okay, having a BAD week, so I did more knitting. this time a variation on the one i finished on the 2nd, in Wool-ease in a taupe and mustard gold.... the picture does not do it justice. This is beautiful, and with a ceramic button from my stash that I wish I could remember where it came from. OY.

The scarf is going to be a birthday present for a dear friend. It can wrap around the neck to keep her snuggly WARM!!!

The weather outside is frightful, but the knitting is delightful

In the middle of winter, battling fatigue, I decided to take a half-day for me. I finished my MaggiKnits scarf from the Vogue Live event. A silly and delightful project to cure what ails you, it has 3 different yarns and a cute button. A couple of first for me... 1. knitting with "tape" and 2. making little "tube" fuzzies that remind me of wooly bear caterpillars. The rag look was created by cutting the tape in short lengths and tying them together before knitting. Back to work!
