Greeting the Cold with More Knitting

We've gone to Alsace to spend All Saints' Day with family. So, of course, I had to bring some knitting. But my merlot-colored sweater was in a delicate spot and my lace scarf is not easy to transport because the yarn is in hank-form, not ball-form. Naturally, I had to start a new project.

I chose the Girl Friday sweater from Knitty, a pretty shawl-collar design with a big lace pattern. Just in time too, because we already had some snow here! OK, OK, it melted right away, but still.


I'm using the grey merino wool from Rowan - the same yarn that I used for my failed project this summer. So far, so good ... knock on wood.


Happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates it!!
