Remember the old "Calgon, take me away!" commercials?
Yesterday was difficult. The calming, meditative aspect of knitting came to the rescue. I managed a couple of pattern repeats on my active lace project.
This is Juliet Scarf from Louisa Harding's Knitting Little Luxuries. The yarn is Fleece Artist's Peter Rabbit in a raspberry pink. It's a quirky little pattern that knits up quickly on #8s.
My inactive lace project is a Kimono Shawl in Sea Silk, blackberry colorway.
I absolutely love this - love the pattern, love the fiber, love the colors - but shoved it aside for Christmas knitting. It's almost time to pick it up again.
As predicted, the beagle puppies are having a much better day today. It has warmed to 20 degrees with some new snow. That's warm enough to romp outside, then come in, warm up, and snooze.
I promise you: I'm putting these projects waaaay up high and training the puppies not to climb.
