Alrighty now, flurries and chillies and snuggies all around!

There is no more denying it: winter is upon us.

And back on my lap (needles)? My Cassidy sweater out of wonderful woolie Camilla Farm Canadian 2-ply! I’d ditched this to the bottom of the knitting basket when it got too hot too handle this summer but now, it is perfection. I’m knitting on the Back (got around 4 inches done last night) and it is doing double duty as a WIP & a mini-lap blanket ;p

Here’s another view of the Back before I got busy:
Chic Knits Cassidy

That picture is from July (?) and you can see how different the color looks in daylight as opposed to the indoor light in my house. The Dark Photo Days of Winter now loom…

The pretty blue tweediness of this yarn and the quickie no-needle cables move this along at pretty much top speed. And I did something that I always do when picking up a project that’s been sitting around with no progress: I frogged back a couple of rows and re-attached *fresh* working yarn. This does away with tilted stitches that sometimes happen when a row of knitting has been on the needles for a long time without moving.

TGIF! Gotta run for the train!!!!
