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.
Well, that is about it for today. I will talk to you all soon.
