It's been just over a week since my last entry - my trip to Kansas City last weekend was fun and productive, though short. I was able to see a few of my friends and pretty much all of my family - not to mention knit (and crochet) up a storm!
On the train ride down, I finished my Abalone Cardigan in Malabrigo Silky (Matisse Colorway):
wedge sock using the crazy awesome German yarn (Wollglöckchen Handgefärbte Sockenwolle - say that five times fast); on the train ride home I started sock # 2 and will probably get the heel turned this weekend. Pardon the crappily-lit self-portrait:
sideways double-crochet scarf - the yarn is some wonderfully soft MCN hand-dyed by my pal Kit (who is also a tattoo artist and is responsible for the half-sleeve in the below photo). It's been the perfect little scarf for this crazy-for-March weather we're having this week:
Riverside Cowl (exclusive Malabrigo March pattern by my pal Breean at Doodlebug Yarns this month! Use the coupon code at right for $5 off your purchase of yarn & pattern for this project!) - I finished it upon my return to Chicago this past Monday night. I only wish I had a need for it, since this is the first cowl I've made in a while that actually stays up around my neck and keeps me warm!
