The winter sun is warming up the house nicely today. Spring is just around the corner. But I am not yet tired of the snow...there's so little of it!
Hubby picked up some beautiful canna lillies for St-Valentine's. I will be able to plant the bulbs outside this spring and maybe get them to bloom again.
The Purl Bee website is one of my favorite sites. I just love so many of the patterns that they publish, both for knitting or sewing.
Last week, they posted a new pattern for a scarf and I had it on the needles that same night. I had the perfect yarn in my stash to knit this scarf. I've been knitting on it every day since.
The stitch is simple to knit but looks so interesting...almost like a waffle stitch. I can't wait to see it blocked.
The yarn is 100% alpaca from a local farm nearby, Misty Haven Alpacas. It's a DK weight and creamy white....just so soft. Perfect luxury for this scarf.
Have you noticed my new knitting 'basket'?
This is a salad bowl that we've had for many, many years. We use it a few times a year when we have large family dinners. So it ends up being stored away most of the time.
But now that I've found a new use for it, it will be in the living room from now on with my current project, right next to my chair.
I love multi purpose items, don't you?
