My original plan for yesterday was to go to New York City to see the Chagall and Spiegelman exhibits at the Jewish Museum but alas. I went to Nebraska instead. I have no regrets.
I've also been knitting, of course. It's too cold to do anything but knit and watch movies.
Basic mitten pattern by Mary Lou Egan done in Rowan Cocoon. I had a skein left after making Mary Lou's Esker Cowl a couple of years ago, so now I have a matching set. (I love the cowl and use it on the coldest Polar Vortex days).
I started a stealth project too, with a yarn I thought was mostly blue. It's knitting up grey and purple. I may have to re-group a bit before continuing.
And lastly, these are my purchases from the excursion to Darn Knit last weekend. The colors in the first two are more electric than what came out here.
This one reminds me of the 1980s black and bright craze.
This one contains all my favorite colors. I love Colinette yarn, although I don't think I've never tried the fingering weight before.
And this to make something for a baby. No, I'm not expecting to be a grandma soon, but I seem to be reaching the age that requires I have baby stuff at the ready.
That's it. Another Polar Vortex on the way. Stay warm.
