three year scarf

I am kind of in love with knitting that looks like weaving .. even if it takes me 3 years to make!

Loads of perfectly tiny knots, all lined up nice and neat, keeping things tidy .. worth every moment of 3 years!

In the beginning I was fearful that it would become tedious and that I would fixate on quickly finishing and then get pissy that it was taking so long. But really it has calmed me towards the idea of keeping an ongoing unfinished project (not something I usually do) and just working on it whenever .. three years later, turns out I’m perfectly OK having a long lagging project hanging around, in fact I kind of let it lax even more so because I had no predetermined end date in my head ..nice!
(Working with koigu always helps ♥)

Honestly though, I am still very much a monogamous knitter .. who may soon be starting another three year scarf !

3 seconds of spring

We woke to sun and the street sweeps buzzing about and thought for a moment “SPRING!” but that was soon wiped away with a slap of sleeting snow that the weatherman called graupel, which lead to a quizzical look from Jason and a shared “wth did the weatherman just say” moment, which then lead to a google search..

Graupel (German pronunciation: [ˈɡʁaʊpəl]; English /ˈɡrpəl/, also called soft hail or snow pellets)

So ok, yeah, it graupeled (sp?) today and I feel a tad smarter and a smidge more German for new words!

There is definitely not any graupel in this picture.. my little sweet potato all sacked up like a spring present ♥ and she’ll be home in about a month!

Spring rabbits ..again caught in a graupel storm!

(in all honesty Miss Maggie was made quite awhile ago for a special someone, so technically she was pre-graupel)

..and for no reason other than making me completely happy

everyday needs more Koigu 
..and proving I basically spend my days in a knitters candy shop!

koigu kpppm, now with added graupel!
