I guess my enthusiasm got a head of me, because it's back to gray skies and the possibility of snow for us here in Southern Ontario. Oh well, it won't be long now.
My knitting seems kind of dismal too. Here's a stack of swatches that are trying to look cheery, but instead look like a drift of snow:
I've answered the greater part of the questions that go along with these swatches, but there is still a bunch deal of work to do. The March Break has been a convenient time to do the Master's Program, since I'm not at a computer at work all day, I don't mind being on a computer at home so much. But it's dry work. I thought I'd try some lace knitting:
I'm not liking this so much. The pattern is Diamond Fantasy from Sivia Harding. It strikes me as a modern design and the yarn is a lovely wool, but with a touch of hairiness that feels rustic. Also, I have may have been spoiled for this pattern by Maureen's version.
I'm thinking of ripping it and trying the Trellis Scarf from Interweave Knits Spring 2006 instead. What say you?
