Well, enough about that awful winter - nothing to do about that. Other than knitting and drink hot coffee.
As you can see I managed to get my latest scarf photographed before the blizzards. It is, no wonder, another hitchhiker scarf. With a variegated yarn in rainbow colors it simply works perfect.
So does the fact that it is mindless, easy to take with me and actually is fun to knit as well.
I have never tried Shibui yarn before. It was certainly about time getting that on my needles. They have all these wonderful colors just crying to be knitted.
I used up four skeins of the color Spectrum, and one skein of the color Anime. I wanted to combine those two and found them to be a perfect match.
I used the most of the Spectrum before starting on the Anime and mixed in some rows of the spectrum to add some more life with a few stripes.
I am excited about these colors and the yarn was nice to knit with. It got really soft after a round in soak.
Now lets see - we are promised a lot more snow the next week. We are promised a lot of wind as well. That means snow shoveling, traffic chaos and a long wish for summer. I just want to knit and forget all about those promises...
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in in an invincible summer
