The Storms pass through here to blow onto the East with fury.

We have actually gotten a bit more snow than normal this year. I woke up to a bit of a white world for three weekends in a row again this morning.

Paton's Decor Warm Thoughts Throw

Does anyone have the pattern for the Warm Thoughts Throw? I used to have the pattern. Problem is I'm only half way done with the blanket. Google doesn't help. Nor does Ravelry.

Snow Snow Snow

No Knitting to share this time, just photos of what NW burbs of Chicago look like with 13" of snow in two days and there is more falling. Why do we live in this climate!?
Now where did I put that ticket to the tropics?
Enjoy.

My Five Day Fair Isle Raglan

I had fun knitting this top down raglan. No charts or pre-planning...just "composed" as I knit. The yarn is KnitPicks "Chroma" that I bought last year during their half price blow-out sale. The raglan yoke and body took three days to knit, each sleeve took one day....five days of fun!

Simple 2x2 Scarf

I was giving this yarn by a dear friend of mine on this site, Lou Chicquette. It is a beautiful, supple blend of 42% wool, 35% acrylic, and 23% Viscose. The yarn is by Berroco and is buttery soft that makes it a very pleasant yarn to knit.

Back at it!

Hey all! Got a late start but back int the knitting game for the winter. Having lived in Dallas for a couple years 80 degree weather in December somehow seemed inappropriate for knitting. Now that I'm back in the New England area I'm enjoying my tea and knitting meditation time. Currently working a cable cowl neck.

Twist Collective

I haven't investigated this site too much but what I did find looks promising. Check it out if you get a chance. It is apparently free as are all the back issues.
Enjoy.
