Spring is in the Air

Hi there..
Spring is definitely in the air here today in Western NY!
I have little knitting to talk about this week, so I'll expand
on a few things from last week.

Lilli Pilli

Madeline Tosh Light Yarn

Size 4 needles

Cast on 75 stitches (vs 135 that pattern called for)
1st stripe section - 48 stripes
1st lace section - 10 pattern repeats
2nd stripe section - 82 stripes
2nd lace section - 4 pattern repeats

It still came out much longer than I wanted, but I love it anyway.
The stripe sections were very very very boring.

I wore the Riverton Cowl on Wednesday when it was so cold and
windy out.
Yarn is North Light Fibers - a gift from Martha last year.

It is soft as butter and so nice to knit with.
Pattern is nice, but not as easy to follow as some in
Ravelry claim.  I am opting not to block so the "pillows" stand out.

Working away on the 2nd huge sock

Two EZ mitered mittens almost done.
Yarn is Noro Kuryeon.  Yes, this is the same color as I made
in December. I have a lot of this yarn to use up.  LOL
I will put them away for Christmas.
Thumbs left to do.
I have to become better at creating Ravelry project pages.
I could not remember how many stitches I used for the last pair.
Turned out it was 40. Size 6 needles.

Not sure what I will make next....I will work away on the
giant socks till I figure it out.

Ruth is working on a sweater.
Morlaix Cardi by Regina Moessmer.  Using Noro yarn.
She loves the pattern but is very disappointed with the yarn,
and she may have to rip.

She is working on some socks to ease the pain.
  Lang Jawoll Magic 6 ply.

Martha is working on Another Really Easy Lace Scarf.
Yarn: Jagger Spun Re-Dun
Gifted to her from Ruth.

Martha is working away on her sweater:
Kelmscott by  Carol Sunday

Yarn is WEBs Stockbridge....

In other news:
Joe went ICE fishing today. Glad he made it home.
He said there was a lot of ice.
And the big news:
We have a new (to us) dog.  13 year old Shih Tzu.  My Aunt passed away and
we acquired her. Neither of us want another dog so this is a big adjustment.
Her long coat was in such bad shape had to have her shaved.  so today I bought
her a little sweater cause she's freezing.  $15....if she is still around next year
I will make her a couple.  Her name is KeeLee

She is calling me so until next week.....

How's Mickey doing with the dog? Having one dog at a time is nice, even though she is not a golden.. She can remind you of your aunt....
