70 Degrees in February

Hello Everyone!

It is 70 degrees in February!  I can’t believe it.   I’m a little scared.  Where is the snow? The frost?  I was at Home Depot today and people were buying flowers, I’m thinking this is Oklahoma, we have at least 3 more freezes and 5 tornadoes before I will feel like it is safe to plant anything.  It is beautiful though and I will take advantage of it.

The nights are still cool though, and its nice to cuddle up in a blanket and knit.  I am now working on the Summer Dawn cardigan by Andrea Black and knitting it with Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock in the colorway Peach Melba. I don’t know why this color is called Peach Melba.  It is more like fire orange.  It really does remind me more of a campfire than peaches.  It has orange, light orange, bright red, dark red.  A beautiful medley, I really should rename my version of Summer Dawn, Summer Sunset since that is what the colors remind me of, campfires and sunsets.

The pattern itself is not bad, its a bit of a challenge. There are a lot of “at the same times” so you really have watch what you are doing.  The cardigan is knit from the top down and I am almost to the Body Shaping and still growing my sleeves before I separate them.  While it is a bit challenging that you have to really pay attention with all the “at the same times,” the pattern also is a bit potato chippy.  I don’t want to put it down.  I also dropped a like 10 stitches on the back lace section last night so now I am watching it to make sure it’s back on track.  There is a bit of a flub but I think its getting back on track.  I hope……

As promised, I have my Perfect Retreat Shawl blocked and pictures taken, so here it is.

Slightly obsessed with yarn, love the colors and the feel of it in my hands. Will always have something to talk about regarding yarn, knitting, patterns and everything else related to knitting.
