A Trip, The Flu, A Snow Storm
On Thursday, February 14, 2008 I finished these socks
Yarn: Opal, Rainforest - Raupe
Pattern: Wollmeise Socks by Monica Jones
Needle: Size 0 dp's
These socks are a fun knit. The pattern is easy and gives a person something to think about while knitting this colorful yarn. The result is a tightly knit, really warm sock. On Friday, February 15th my husband and I took a short trip to Maine to visit my Mother. Saturday morning we went for a ski. The weather and the trails were perfect. My husband on the other hand decided to get the flu. He spent the rest of the weekend in bed while I visited with relatives and knit on my "That Little Scarf".

Drove back to NJ on Monday. Tuesday morning brought me a dose of the flu. All four of the occupants of this house are in bed with the flu. Yuck! And of course we had to get 8" of snow to shovel. Fevers and shoveling = not fun.
I started "That Little Scarf" on December 22, 2007 and finished on February 20, 2008. I had read on Ravelry that folks were finishing this scarf in days, it took me months. It is very important to pay attention to the pattern, for me anyway.
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold, Silky Wool - Color 37
Pattern: That Little Scarf
Needles: Straight size 6
I have started "Twinings"
I am using Lanas Puras, Melosa Lace in Desert Bloom. The pattern is fun and the yarn is beautiful. I am using Addi lace needle size 6.
