. . . sorry, just kidding . . . well, I have been saying every day, “one day closer to spring”! but really, I’m feeling better now I’m nearly adjusted to Daylight Savings Time (last Sunday) and what blew in the day before . . .
Since then we’ve had more of the white stuff, but not enough to make it too icy for safety. It is pretty, eh?
I’ve been knitting away, and the ‘barn cardi’ is now over 27″ long; I have about 4″ to go on the top edge, then I will add a couple of motifs at the bottom, then an edging of some sort. I think this will end up being car coat length or maybe more . . . since I’m tall and heavy, this will be a good length for me, whether I wear it over jeans or my favourite black ankle-length skirt. Here’s where it is right this minute:
This yarn (Astra acrylic) calls for 4mm (US 6) needles, so with the double stranding the fabric is lovely and thick. The cardi is cosy just snuggling on my lap as I work. Here’s a peek at the reverse (inside):
In case you were wondering about that gorgeous photo in the beginning, I was watching “Foxfire”, an old favourite with actress Jessica Tandy, her husband Hume Cronyn and John Denver. That house is an actual old homestead home in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Highlands, North Carolina, if I remember correctly) and is one of my dream homes. You can check out the movie on YouTube here:
. . . and, for no particular reason . . . what I’m watching (sort of) on tv while knitting:
Last, what I saw on my way home with a rolly cart of groceries this afternoon:
Hope you all have a lovely, relaxing Sunday (or have already had it) 😉
