Signs of the Season
With blue skies shining, how can I tell that it's winter on the CA cost? Well I spied a few signs of the season that I can share with you. First, Niko grew her winter coat and is now fantastically fuzzy.
Second, Dan is also working on his winter fur.
Third, my scarf saga has reached closure. Behold my NEW alpaca scarf.
It's a simple scarf, made with knit 2 purl 2 ribbing in a symmetrical stripe pattern that I like. The yarn is Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande. I've used this yarn for several projects, and I always enjoy knitting with it. It sheds a bit, and the finished project can be a bit fuzzy, but I love it for hats and scarves because it feels soft and cozy. Plus, I enjoy these colors tremendously.
Now my hat has a mate again, and I am wearing both almost every evening when I'm out and about with the ocean chill in the air.
