More Mid-winter knitting

Like the rest of Northeast Ohio, I was buried under 5 feet of snow for (what felt like) eons.

So what did I do?

I knit.

Ysolda's Gretel. Made for my mother who requested a fetching hat that would cover her ears.

I love this pattern - the trellis cabling is achingly sweet.

I started this 2 weeks ago and finished it in the car on the way back from the Akron Art museum this past Sunday. Go see the Edward Weston exhibit - you won't regret it.

So sweet! (Even without make-up...)

This sweater is actually what I've been working on as the snow drifted. I've no link to the pattern as it was in a free magazine I picked up at River Colors.

It's a good example of tempting fate - it was meant to be made with a different size yarn and needle - and the yarn I chose was limited as it was a destash purchase with no hope of getting anymore than the 5 or 6 skeins I had. So I squinted my eyes and hoped very, very hard that it would fit.

It seems to have worked.
