My current work in progress:

1. Segel, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply Toes in the "Draco" gradient set on a 3.5 mm (U.S. size 4) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Bind-off of the Chevron Shawlette will commence in five, four, three, two . . .

As soon as this baby is off the needles, I will cast on for the Chevron Stole. Conveniently, the yarn I have planned to use for the Chevron stole arrived in my Loopy Ewe order today.

I do so like it when a plan works out well.

This new yarn is once again Madelinetosh Tosh Sock, this one in the “Logwood” colorway. I have two skeins of it, because I think the stole will take more than one skein.

From time to time people ask me what I do with all these shawlettes. A girl can only wear so many shawls, right? I always keep a couple at the office for starters. and the smaller ones I’ve been making lately make great scarves. I do give some of them away. And right now, three of them (Argus, Seaside, and Miss Woodhouse) are visiting for the next few weeks over at fibre space.

Lucy has indicated that her own fluffy fur coat is sufficient for her, thank you.

The Knitting Status:

The Talisman Shawl is a few rows longer than it was the last time I posted photos. But just a few.

I have high hopes for this weekend, when we are supposed to get what might actually be a “significant” snowfall.

I dearly wish that said significant snowfall is significant enough to stall all activities in the region and cause the government to close with admin leave for all on both Monday and Tuesday. Why, yes, my holiday leave starts Wednesday. How did you know?

I realize this is not very likely, but hey! A girl can dream, right?

The Hair Status:

It’s still red.

It’s been just about a year since I started henna-ing it.

The Heat Status:

I have not yet turned on the heat.

I think it’s comfy in here!

The Lucy Status:

She’s snuggled up on her sheepskin due to the heat status.

Though I still do not understand how she, with her lovely thick fur coat, can be chilly when I am not.
