Vivante!

[no title]

That's right, still kicking. I've been enthralled this month by other peoples' projects.  I'm still amazed that every single day, someone out there is crafting up a storm and sharing it online. My jaw remains open and drooling at the talent out there. Great respect to all of you sharing your work.

For me, projects remain at a steady crawl, but indeed still moving forward. Interlock Balloons has seen the most attention of late, but not enough to have the pattern memorized--two little post-it-notes still inch up and down the chart as I knit, some days they don't move at all. I'm eager to see this one gone, I've already got a few new projects on the brain. It's a snowy, bleary day today, so here's hoping for some progress.

 
 
One day, this scarf will be complete

A slight modification worth noting: I've changed the edge to a slipped-stitch edge.  In hindsight, this scarf could well have use the double slipped-stitch edge used on the Backyard Leaves scarf.  I've long wondered why this scarf wasn't designed with a more complimentary edge.  Anyone else agree? 

In eager anticipation of finishing up some projects, a local yarn sale has brought some of Lily Chin's (one of the fastest crocheters in the west, don't you know) new Superwash Merino into my already yarn-filled home.  Friends of mine with babies, or with babies on the way, please turn around, and don't come back until March or April.  There's stuff's going to be cute, I tell you.

 
Lily Chin Gramercy, destined for small projects

Ok, so as mentioned, on with the dreary day, hoping for some progress today.  Happy Chinese New Year.

Interlocking Balloons looks beautiful, even if it is going slowly. What yarn are you using? I love the color.
