This morning when I kissed my husband goodbye and opened the door (I get to work from home on occasion) I saw that our neighborhood was covered in a deep grey fog. Kind of spooky. Of course I picked up my camera and snapped a few pics.
This weather in Maryland and DC has been so crazy lately. Freezing in the morning and 60 degrees by the afternoon – what is going on?! And even though it’s gloomy and nasty outside, I’m working on something bright and colorful inside.
I’ve been playing around with different techniques and things I can do with the knitting skills I learned last year and of course I’ve been gravitating towards accessories. I bought some super bright neon yarn when I went to NY in November and it is super soft cotton. So I decided to pair it with cream and teal yarn and create links. We’ll see how this project goes, it might turn out to be a very cool statement piece. Who knows, I just love experimenting and creating something new.
And speaking of knitting, a friend of mine on Facebook posted an awesome link. If you’re a knitter you might want to knit a scarf for the Special Olympics! When I read this I knew immediately that I would have to participate. I’ve got to send in a scarf or two before February 13th for Maryland’s delegation. I think that’s just a wonderful way to put my knitting skills to use.
