Don’t you hate it when you lay down at night and your brain just won’t shut up so you can go to sleep?
Since that happened to me again last night I went ahead and got up because I knew I only had about a half dozen rows to finish on this cowl.
This is (again) a free pattern available thru Ravelry… it’s called Elis. I was intrigued by it because of the Indian Cross Stitch. It’s very easy and gives an interesting pattern. I still need to block this – but the yarn is a Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca DK weight.
Here are the Morning Bells Shawl…
and Triplicity Shawl – all nice and blocked and ready to be mailed!
Before and after felting.
You knit them and stuff them and felt them in the washing machine and then you can dye the plain ones with Kool-aide!!
In the end I liked the Kool-aide knitted ones the best because the colors were just so brilliant!
My local yarn shop is going to order some colored yarns and put together some kits for those that want to make colored eggs but don’t want to dye them. I think they will be sweet and was glad that she liked the idea enough to order some yarn.
And just a glimps at what my week has been like… Monday brought about 8 inches of HEAVY WET snow…
Not good for bushes…
But pretty good for kids… each age group comes out and climbs up this mountain of snow. This is the view from my flat roof that needed to be shoveled off in anticipation of freezing rain coming the next day.
And speaking of freezing rain… here is Wednesday!
We did not loose power here but it’s been rough going for many many people here in PA.
I’ve got to ask y’all… do you see the face image in the ice in this picture? I see a girl in the little icicle… do you?
