It’s snowy and very cold, courtesy the Polar Vortex. A good day for knitwear!
I got the day off (mostly) yesterday for our “snowstorm” but went in to the office today, bundled up in down coat and wool shawl. We don’t often get temperatures this low, but when we do, I certainly have an arsenal of wool handy to fight the chill!
I’ve made progress on my Midnight Waterfall. The back is complete:
(You can just see my knitting inspector’s head at the bottom right of that photo.)
I’ve started on a side front:
Photos taken in two different places with vastly different lighting. The first one is more true to life.
I’m on the fence about this sweater. I can’t decide if it’s pretty or if it’s a clown sweater. I’m afraid right now I’m leaning toward clown sweater. I really can’t imagine wearing something this loud, so I’m thinking at the very least I’ll put it in time out. Yep, I picked out the colors, but I’m not sure I like how they are going together. My opinion of the sweater is also colored by the fact that the pattern is a hot mess.
Anyway. I’ve got another project waiting in the wings that I’m actually excited about. All will be revealed in the fullness of time.
In other news, on cold winter nights, it is great to have a sleepy baby polar bear with whom to snuggle.
Check out the size of his paw in comparison to my hand. He’s a big boy!
