Knitting, knitting, more knitting, and oh yeah …. IRENE

Thankfully Irene has come and gone. OF COURSE we lost power. Power was out for 2 days. Saved by our generator. AGAIN. Hooray for PECO Energy and their spiffy service. Glad we pay such exorbitant rates for it. Not.

Finding your way to anywhere over the beginning of last week was like navigating through a maze. Between water and downed trees and electrical crews (the only ones we saw were from OUT OF STATE) it took 2x as long to get anywhere. At least we weren’t Connecticut. Or Vermont. Or New Jersey.

Lots of down time = Lots o’ knitting.

Verdaia

Verdaia by Jodie St. Clair. Great pattern. Fast knit. Beautiful result. The Madelinetosh Sock in Jade sure doesn’t hurt.

This Way Up

This Way Up is a free pattern on Ravelry. I got it from the “Knitting Pattern A Day” calendar. This should have been easy. I had beaucoup trouble reading the chart even with enlarging it. But a nice basic scarf that gender neutral.

I’m prepping for the Madelinetosh multicolor shawl KAL. Colors: Violin and Cloak. I think I’m gonna wing it and design my own pattern.
