Happy Heart Day!!

love

I cast on the gathered scarf on my birthday. A little indulgence considering I have a few WIPs already. And I haven't put it down since! It certainly grew a lot today as Snowboarder and I drove up to Tahoe/Reno (we're staying with my great-aunt for the weekend). The drive was a bit longer (um...maybe 3 hours longer!!!) because we were driving in a nice little snow storm! It sure was gorgeous though!

Socks that Rock mediumweight, colorway Bleeding Hearts

I'm hoping this won't stay a WIP very long. I absolutely love it!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Perfect for a Valentine weekend knit!

And you are DEFINITELY a 'glass half full' gal. Driving in a snowstorm "sure was gorgeous"!?

I would have been crying in the back seat!

Have a great weekend!

Lovely! I've had that pattern cued up for a while. I love it in that color. I'm wondering how lonf of a scarf you'll get out of one skein.
