Just In Time

red hat set

Recent travel knitting consisted of small things, from this red yarn, dyed red because of extreme-red-envy. The hat is a dubblemossa, with an eyelet rib from Walker:

Multiple of 7 stitches plus 2, purl 2 knit 5 for 3 rows, then purl 2, k2tog, YO, K, YO, SSK, repeat. It makes a nice little rib, and the hat being double thickness, the holes did not detract from the warmth factor.

I repeated the eyelet rib on the back of the mittys, but the scarf is one of the many multidirectional patterns out there, my version from here.

The *just in time* issue?

yurt snow Feb 2007

Winter has (finally) arrived :).

And now, to don the hat, scarf and mittens, and rush out to join my neighbors shopping for storm-essentials: bread, milk, toilet paper and chips. At least that's the bulk of what I see in grocery carts right before a storm. There must be some reason these are Storm Staples, but, oddly, none of them are on my list today:

I hope you are cured of red envy as this is a stunning ensemble to face the snow with. Sue F. says I was last to be added to the dye class list... whoo, hoo!!

More snow again here too. I'm not much of a "red person", but that color really looks great on you - to say nothing of a nice foil for all the whiteness.

You totally stole our snow. The storm gave it all to you and thumbed its nose at us. Were I to wear your ensemble, it would be like, whatever. Or maybe it's going to take red, a rain dance of sorts to make it happen in the rainshadow of the Sierras - Storm Stealers.

It's snowing here now. Again.
Nice set. I love the red. I think that I need more red in my life!

Lovely reds. I notice the same things in other people's shopping carts too - can't quite figure out what their diets actually consist of. I never spy in their carts on sunny days. Maybe I should if the sun ever returns.

Beautiful reds! Maybe winter was just waiting for you to be ready? We also had a late start on winter this year but are anticipating another ice storm tomorrow.

Lovely lovely reds! Condolences on the cold and snow - we've had torrential downpours the last few days. The sweetgum trees are budding already, which worries me because I think maybe they're being faked out by nature in an unnatural mood.
