Bad blog mommy

I've been a bad blogger. I have been knitting though. I finished the Fluted Banister socks. Still have to photograph them. I whipped up a scarf from a ball of Patons something or other and a ball of some shiny, sparkly Rowan stuff that Sarah sent me as a thank you for being a great pal in the last Knitty Secret Pal round. I started a pair of Broad Street mittens for a friend...I'm on the second one, just need to finish the mitten part. I started a baby blanket for a former coworker. And I started a scarf out of some Blue Heron yarn that I got while in New Orleans.

I'm off to Fl. tonight to escape some of the winter blues. And of course this weekend here in NY it's supposed to snow like crazy. I'm wondering if I'll be able to come home on Sunday...if not, oh well...I've mapped out the yarn shops where I'll be...I'll be happy. :)

Clapotis is finished!

It was so nice to knit knowing there wasn't a deadline, and especially nice knowing that it was for me! :)

My finished Clapotis, along with a view of it's pink tip:

The pink tip is because I ran out of yarn just before the last 10 rows and was forced to use another shade of Kersti that I had. Luckily I had that, or I would have had to go and get another skein just for 10 rows. Oy. Here's a closeup of the drop stitch ladders:

Next project, a baby blanket, with yarn that should be on its way soon. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!
