It’s been a while since I posted. Been knitting things here and there, but haven’t actually finished anything. Except these two hats back in October:
They’re both done in the Unoriginal Hat pattern by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. The first one was knit with Blue Moon Leticia. It’s a wonderful, soft wool, but the hat came out a little tall. So, I chopped a few rows off the pattern and ended up with the second one, in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.
I’ve put aside that purse I’ve been trying to finish, and have a couple of scarves and some slippers in the works. I can’t seem to finish anything! Probably has something to do with getting bored and starting a new project before finishing others. I’m on vacation this week, and I’m still not getting much done.
Good thing I’m off, though. I’ve been pretty much trapped in my house all week. It snowed this weekend, and it’s been so cold that stuff hasn’t really been melting, making the roads an icy mess. I was able to get out Tuesday to the store and post office. I had a hair appointment up in Seattle Wednesday, which I cancelled because the forecasts said another storm was rolling in, but it kept taking its time to get here (and was warm enough for the roads to mostly melt), so I probably really could have gone. Grr. The storm arrived last night, and everything is covered in snow. It’s still snowing now. At least it’s pretty.
