WIP Wednesday - 2/9/2011

Another snow day has crippled the city...



I think my friends in Canada are laughing at us down here in Tey-has.

Since I won't be going down my driveway anytime soon, I'll show you what I am going to work on today.

First, we have the lacy top that I wanted to finish by the end of last month.  Since I left for our trip without extra skeins of yarn in which to complete the project, it isn't quite finished...but close.

Oh, so close:



I've started a wash cloth out of the 100% linen Louet Euroflax Sport Weight.  I am using a feather and fan pattern from the book Knitter's Stash. There are seven other patterns in the book, and I will have to decide which others to use:



Finally, the scrap blanky in its current state:



On days like today, having lots of yarn around is a good thing.

Oh...and one more thing.  While I think it's a catchy tune, and Aggieland was represented, I have a little bone to pick with Jack Ingram.  He didn't mention The Jewel of the Gulf, (aka my island hometown...la isla bonita...The G) in his little ditty

Get a rope!

MK out.

Should have stayed in California a little longer to miss the weather. Stay warm.

That's a perfect way to use a snow day! I've made a couple of those patterns for the linen cloths. You can also just plug in any stitch pattern.
