As the snow begins to fall gently on the small northern town, panic quietly begins to spread. An unseasonably warm January has lulled this community into sporting a fall-like wardrobe and the white fluff swirling through the air is shattering their illusions. A lone citizen braves the alien landscape because she has a newly completed weapon against these Flakes of Death. So confident is she that she was seen laughing at this White Invasion. Fear not good citizens - winter can be defeated!!! Take heart and knit - knit now!!!
This Shedir fits a lot better - I re-knit it on 3.5mm needles.
Samantha - I used the Rowan Calmer called for in the pattern - it is very soft and cozy.
Robin - For my Jaywalkers, I used Regia Color #5440 (party color) and yes, it is the 4ply. I used 2.5mm needles and knit the large size.
Kenny - Yes, the Daisy Meadow Scarf is for a client; the same one for whom I am knitting the Flirty Ruffles Shawl. (for anyone curious about knitting 2 socks using the Magic Loop technique, Kenny is doing a tutorial on his blog!)
I also did a swatch on 3.25mm needles for the FRS yesterday. Isn't it lovely?! It is a bit small though, so I will be knitting another swatch today on a 3.5mm. Once I get the needle size down pat I will have to order a couple of long circular needles to do the ruffle. I am not scared or worried yet about the deadline - Olympic adrenaline or delusions of speed? Time will tell.
