Patterns

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

Today Mother Nature has been busy all day long creating patterns on everything in sight. She is using snow as her medium today. Lovely, fluffy, snow that has been accumulating all day long. Finally.

While she’s been busy outside, I’ve been working on my own pattern while sitting by a cozy fire inside. My chosen medium is yarn. I am attempting the Japanese Vines pattern from Michelle’s blog. Blogger Not Plain Jane is to blame for this newest obsession of mine: lace. I must have started this scarf at least ten times, only to frog it. Have you ever had something that you just couldn’t seem to get right? This was it for me. But I kept trying and finally have it going. It’s very addictive! The pattern is gorgeous (at least I think so). It will be a gift for my friend, Carolyn.

The color is actually a plummy purple but it looks more blue in the photos. Yummy indeed! The yarn is a silk/wool blend from String Theory and is wonderful to work with. It’s hard to put down now that I finally mastered it!

Now back to enjoying our snow ...

i love the top photo.

snow would be kind of nice, but i’m so happy to see the sun here today, and that its WARM!  (well, warm for Feb….)

the knitting looks gorgeous - i like fancy knits too. Am rather sorry that our new family member is a nephew not a niece - more limited knitting prospects.
