Well, the change to cold weather and snow has gotten serious around here:
The ski resorts are delighted; they always plan to be open for Thanksgiving, even if they have just a few runs functioning. All of this has motivated me to finish a sweater for myself that I started last June. It's called Foliage and I actually made it with the yarn called for -- Snowbird by Nashua Handknits which is a wool alpaca blend. Great for these days when I am out and about and in denial that it is actually cold and I really could use a jacket.
My daughter has gotten to calling them Ro and Fo and I have been waiting for Fall to arrive to make him a sweater.
Knittng Pure and Simple fame. I used 2 skeins of Plymouth Encore worsted weight which is acrylic with 25% wool. It's called, appropriately, Easy Baby Cardigan and it really is a great sweater to do when you are trying to finish a sweater before baby has grown out of it.
