Here we are waiting for a major dumping of snow. School has been cancelled for today and they are requesting that people stay off the roads after noon. You don’t have to ask me twice. I am happily at home lining up some knitting projects to keep me busy while Mother Nature does her thing outside. I’ve got plenty of hot chocolate, yarn and DVRed programming. I’m looking forward to a wonderful weekend of being homebound. I suppose there will be shoveling but that is a small price to pay for a clear schedule.
Last night I had nearly completed the Red Vine/Blackjack socks. This morning I spent a few minutes kitchenering the toes and weaving in the ends. The pattern is by Rachel M. Blaine. The yarn is Premier Yarns Serenity Sock in Lavender. Now that I have completed the socks I think the skeins were different dye lots. When I bought the yarn they were without their original label. It doesn’t matter to me at all. They will keep my feet warm while I’m out in the nasty weather. The yarn was very nice to knit with and the pattern is well written and easy to follow. In no time I was able to knit the pattern without looking at the chart. Overall a very satisfying knit.
