Almost Finished

So here are a few views from my front door. These pictures were taken about 2 weeks ago. We got about 8 inches of snow yesterday. We've had almost 100 inches of snow this winter - a storm a week or more! We get 4-6 inches, followed by some thawing, followed by another 4-6 inches, on a regular basis. It's a bit scary to try to get out of the driveway. I can't see what's coming up or down the road. The snowpiles left by the plows are beginning dwarf my Subaru!

 

 


Here are some photos of the almost finished cardigan I started early in January.

 

 



It's almost done. I have 32 rows left on the 2nd sleeve, and then the neckband and finishing to do. I decided to start the blocking process though. It will take a day or so for the pieces to dry and they don't all fit at once on the blocking board. So while I'm finishing the sleeve, I have the body blocking. I have really enjoyed knitting this sweater, Cable Vision, from Family Circle Plus Size Knits. I'm using Northampton. I had to go down to size 5 needles to get gauge, and I shortened the sleeves a bit. Otherwise, no major modifications.

That's a lovely sweater. How do you like the Northampton?

We've had only and inch or two of snow all winter, lots of cold, dry wind, and no other moisture. Fire warnings are out everywhere. This is not good for an agricultural area.

Not to thumb my nose, but it was 81 here yesterday and we had to use the car AC to run errands.

I'd rather be where you are!
