As updated by the other, more punctual Spiders, most of us spent a Saturday eating and watching so-bad-they're-good movies at the dyeing party graciously hosted by Marie and E (thanks again!). These beauties are Knit Picks Wool of the Andes dyed with Scarlet, Orange, and Yellow Gold. I haven't found the right project, but I think a chunky scarf for chilly spring days may be in order.
I did manage to finish knitting Lara at the dyeing day at Marie's (which was over 2 weeks ago - oops). Until I motivate to seam her, here's a teaser for you. I really love the colors, and the Brooks Farm Four Play was dreamy. Although the colors went from a darker red with strands of chocolate on the first sleeve to sections with light pink, I now have a new appreciation for the variance of hand-dyed yarn.
This Sunday, while the snow continued in record-breaking amounts, I finally settled on a new project - the UO Shrug as shown over at Peony Knits. I'm using Cascade 220 in a navy color (as seen on Virginia's tubey), but since you've all seen k2p2 ribbing, I'll wait until I have more than an inch to show. I think I should have some time tomorrow between work and my Valentine's date to stop in at The Point for a few rows. Hope you all have a fun Valentine's Day!
