Looks like somebody in my building was happy about the snow this weekend. We really haven't had much since the two feet on Halloween weekend. And I'm not complaining!
It was snowy, and it was cold ... zero F when I woke up this morning. But my head was nice and warm while I did the day's errands, thanks to this FO:
Pattern: Bosc Hat by Robin Ulrich
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool, natural mix
Needles: US5 and US7
Bosc is a roomy beret in two sizes. The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow. If you like the lace stitch pattern, you might be excited to know there's also a matching, really elegant scarf.
I was a busy bee this weekend knitting swatches for a couple of new spring designs (more on them another time). I also worked a little on Rebecca Ringquist's 2010 Stitch Dictionary sampler:
This one has some new-to-me stitches: couching, coral knots, Algerian Eye, bullion knots.
Let the white stuff fall. On my sampler, I'm dreaming of the bright colors of summer.
