Like many people in New England, I had a snow day yesterday—almost everything around here was closed. Luckily, it wasn't as heavy and wet as predicted. It's so much harder to shovel really wet snow, and there's always the danger of power lines going down.
But the power never went off—my lights never even flickered. After going for a nice long walk in the morning, I settled in with coffee and a movie for some serious knitting. One task I completed was finally binding off and blocking my Plover Shawl.
Pattern: Plover Shawl, by Amy Christoffers
Yarn: Quince & Co. Tern in the Kelp colorway
Needles: US 4/3.50mm
Today, it has not been off my neck for even one second. I love it that much. I rarely knit a pattern twice, but this is one I could see having in several different colors and different yarns. The shawl is entirely reversible and has an interesting construction—growing from a few cast-on stitches to 245 stitches in all, yet not symmetrical.
Finishing the shawl was exciting, but the best part of my snow day was decorating a little footbridge with weeds. And seeing a pair of pileated woodpeckers. I couldn't get a picture of them, but if you'd like, you can listen to them here.
