warm wool, winter fun

The past week has been filled with ice skating (in rink and on pond), making Valentine's cards for the Children's Hospital, ice fishing, snow angels, sledding, sleepovers, planetarium/observatory coolness, good books, knitting, and lots of friends. In between it all, Scott's been bitten by the spinning bug again. He finished spinning all the roving we had for my cardigan in progress.

Then he dove into a really fun blend that we got while in Lancaster County, PA, last spring. You can't see it in the picture, but there's the tiniest bit of purple shimmery Angelina fiber blended in with all those fairy-like fresh springtime colors. I wonder what it'll become eventually.

I'm doing some extra work at one of my offices 2 days/wk from now until we leave for Greece, but I've finished the sleeves of my cardigan and started the body of that sweater yesterday (while in the office - yahoo!), and made a bunch of progress on Leah's sweater over the weekend. The change of plan from ruffle to picot was easy because the whole thing was done with a provisional cast-on. Only things left to do on that are to sew the sleeves in place, knit the button bands, and cut the steeks. There's also a bunch of fair isle knitting going on here and we have just about enough to be worth snapping some pictures, so that'll come soon.
