We woke up to a fine dusting of snow this morning. Igor was transfixed by the sparse white stuff.

It was all too soon a wet memory.

I finished my current project, the Patricia Chameleon Cowl. I used Berroco Voyage, colourway Ember, and Berroco Flicker, colourway Black. I opted to make a two-tone extended cowl, for more versatility.

I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort and fit, and couldn’t decide on whether or not to soak and block. I opted to soak it for 15 minutes in a bucket of warm water, to allow the fibers to “bloom”. Then I rolled to out on a double-folded towel, for an overnight air dry. It will most likely hold its edge roll but that’s ok.

Wednesday found me back at the repair shop having my front brakes checked, and oil changed. It offered me a chance to knit quietly for a good hour and a half, while munching on candy corn and slurping hot coffee.

Not a creature is stirring tonight. Good night, Elkhorn, WI…
