The Weather Outside is Frightful

December 13, 2010

Oh my, we just had a blast of wintry weather, shooting straight down from Canada.  We only had 3 inches of snow, but the wind chill is below zero! Thank goodness for gas fireplaces, and cozy holiday homes.

This wintry mix arrived just in time for my latest knitting attempt. I made a wonderful hat and scarf for each of my daughters. I knitted a green, gray and cream set for my daughter, Lauren, and a blue, gray and cream set for my daughter, Sarah.  The hat is fairly simple as it is not knitted in the round. It is done on straight needles, and you stitch the seam together in the back. It is a simple slip stitch pattern with a change of yarns that provide an interesting pattern. The scarf was knitted with the stockinette stitch just randomly changing the yarn colors. I hope it keeps them warm!

Happy Quilting . . .
