a little snow

well, i forgot to take pictures of my new stash additions over the weekend – when it was actually sunny! so much gloomy weather, i’d think it would be easy to remember to take advantage of the sun.

of course, this also means i don’t have any daylight pictures of my latest knitting. i have abandoned all wip’s (poor souls) in favor of a new project (no surprise). this is none other than the triangular version of anne’s snow shawl. she seems to think i’m doing her a favor by test knitting for her – but this is way too much fun to be a favor!

anne generously passed on the yarn, sweet lace, cranapple colorway, which is the alternate colorway for the square shawl as well. although it’s about the time of year i’m completely sick of snow, the color makes this so cheerful. it appears deceptively solid in skein, but the knitting reveals it to have subtle variations.

i think this last is my favorite picture. the color isn’t quite true (the first two are better), but you can see the “blizzard” section i’m currently working on so much better. and the “blizzard” happens to be terribly fun to knit!

i took this with me to an open house celebrating anne’s pattern in the spring interweave, and i think i may have to watch my back now…rumor has it, anne wants it for herself…good thing i’m a process knitter!

  1. The shawl is just beautiful, what a wonderful colour. Can’t blame you for leaving all those WIPS standing.

  2. Anne does wonderful designs, doesn’t she? Your triangle is looking lovely. Such a fabulous color!

  3. I just came over from anne’s blog to congratulate you on finishing the shawl.

    Your finished blocked shawl is just amazing! a real work of art, beautiful knitting job wtg!
