Saturday Stash

Er, just a little late, since it's Sunday now.

This is what it looks like here today.  A perfect knitting day. 

I just have a couple of finished pieces to share and they are all about Wendy.  First a scarf which I made from my Christmas gift...a skein of Western Sky yarn.  I used the Crest of the Wave pattern by Judy Jacobs.  There are several others with the same name and it's an easy pattern to use.  The repeats are easy to memorize but complex enough to kep your interest.  I love the many shades of green  against the bright teal and rich chocolate.  And so soft.

The second piece is actually for Wendy.  It's the Jeweled Cowl by Sachiko Uemura with superfine baby alpaca yarn and the 700+ teeny-tiny beads.  I have some left so don't be too surprised if you catch me using them up on another lace project.  I have my eye on a cowl for myself.  Only 57 beads for the next one, though. 

 And now, back to enjoying a day when you are happy to stay indoors.  This snow is really instant slush.  So full of water and heavy on the trees.  Having a snowfall this late is not very unusual here, but it is always a pretty quick event.  Should be mostly over by tomorrow.
