Good Evening Guys,
Well the Noro Sweater I've made for myself is all seamed together and I only have to sew in the zipper tomorrow so I should be getting a photo of the finished product on the blog tomorrow. I am really please with the way it turned out.
The first snow of the season has been falling in St. Louis. Nice but no accumulation to speak of. So with the fire going in the fireplace I've settled in to my favorite chair and have begum a new project. I wanted something fast. So I selected a piece of lace featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Spin Off. The pattern is a sweet shawlette to be used as a scarf. Last Christmas (2011) in my stocking I received two skeins of Rimu Possum Yarn by Zealana from New Zealand from my wife. One is called Kiwi and the other Tomato. She had a wild vision of the yarn company sending out the staff to pick up road kill for recycling. It is knitting up wonderfully and has a great feel. The fibre is 60% New Zealand merino and 40% Possum. I'll post a picture once I am done and it is blocked. My wife loves the color green so I am giving it to her on her birthday in January.
Have a great weekend everyone,
