Open Studio

The first FO of 2012, it's Open Studio, started Jan 1, finished on the 3rd. Knit on 4.5mm needles with MacAusland's Woolen Mills 2 ply fine yarn that I picked up on our PEI trip in August of 2010. I followed the pattern to the letter, I did 12 rows of ribbing, then I did the size with five cable repeats before top shaping. Ravelry details here.

The Littlest One modelled it for me when I was getting ready to take them to school. It was just starting to flurry a bit, thus the little specks of white on the hat. He had ants in his pants, it was hard to get good pictures, I guess he was excited because of the snow.

We ended up getting our first "real" snowfall of the season today, even though it still didn't amount to much. I class it as the first "real" snowfall because I did actually have to take the shovel and scrape the steps and walkway off. It's just enough to cover the ground, maybe two inches at most. I took the girls for a walk in it, they must have thought they were part of a sled dog team, they pulled really bad today. They love the snow. On the way home when we were just up on the corner from our house Jewel thought it would be fun to try and rave with Maggie. I didn't think it was such a good idea, two dogs trying to wrestle on a leash with a divider on it.... Luckily Maggie didn't really play back, so Jewel settled down again!

Happy knitting!
