This is likely the last post here. I would like to conintue posting about my knitting and other crafting endeavors, but no here. It has been two and a half years since the first post and now I want to do something different with this format. See you in another format.
Happy Holidays! Hope to see you again in blogland next year.
So, for the last post I give you our winterwonderland trip to a little bavarian village in the Cascades.
A very nice drive over the pass on Hwy 2.
Every business in town is required look something like this...
Obviously this time of year is pretty popular. Guess what everyone wants to buy when they come to this town...
The Christmas Band.
We went on the Christmas Lighting Weekend. Just a wee bit crowded.
On the needles is Kirk from Rowan 36. The pattern is a half zip front but I am making it as a full zip cardigan. I bought Knitpicks Seirra, which is wool/alpaca. Really nice stuff; soft and no splitting. The row guage is a little off, oh well. I'm eight inches into it and I do not want to frog 184 stitches!!
Urban Aran all finished. Elann Highland Chunky is thick and warm making this sweater so comfy to wear. I didn't bother to block this one. I figure it will stretch with wear.
A last minute ornament. Based on the folded fabric flower as seen on Craftster. I used eight one and one half inch felt squares.
And for the center I stuck a tree light lightbulb through the center hole. Next year I may make more to place all around the tree to give it a little bit of a theme.
