No snow - I wasn't fast enough with the camera to catch it while it was falling, so frost will have to do. :::grin:::
By the way, being frosty...well....more of a cast iron b*tch...certainly helped me today. The classes from hell ...weren't. Not really. More like the outer rings of hell than the actual fiery furnace (my apologies to Dante.) In fact, the kids were so good that I agreed to sub for them tomorrow too. Yeah - I'm a masochist....who needs more yarn money. Hehehehe
They are looking for a long term sub in that class - at least for 6 weeks - but I'm not that much of a masochist. I need a little more variety in my substituting life.
Speaking of variety, lookee what I started:
It's a pillow for the living room. I needed something small as a carry along project and this fits the bill. I'm using wool I bought from Elann...one of their bag sales...and it's so nice & soft I wish I'd gotten more when I had the chance. I think I'll have enough to do 2 pillows.
For those of you who've been wondering about Lion Brand's new Suede yarn:
Altogether now: Ewwwwwwwww.
To begin with, it's NOT the right pattern for this stuff. But I'll warn you - this chenille blooms when it's worked...like nobody's business. Doug & the kids said it looked like an odd mold growing in the forest.
Yeah - that's appetizing. I have 3 balls that I think I'll use for more pillows - obviously I'm scrapping the scarf idea - and I have other yarn in my stash that might go with it fairly well. Suede works up very soft & light but I would only use the simplest of stitches (both knit & crochet) to let the yarn do the work & to make sure you don't have something "moldy" looking when you're done with your project. ;)
The pic of Doug in his sweater will be here soon ...as soon as our schedules coincide.
He loves it!
