I do not like the waffle sweater. I think it wants to be in a mohair or something at that gauge – not an aran weight yarn. I tried it with balloon sleeves. I tried it with bell sleeves. I blocked it. I’m going to pull it out and make something else.

This I like.A little house with new green shutters. It needs a bath.

New shutters! So much better.

Word on the street is that outside work starts again in March. I am pretty excited.

Bon Temps Roulez

the house with 15.5" of show (shoveled)

The official total (says the news) was 15.7″. Still easier than ice. It’s pretty and lovely to be inside when it’s snowing, but I think the thing I like the most is that the power stays on!

about a dozen snow ducks arranges in ranks on the porch rail

Snow duck army. I got her a duck mold. She also had a rice duck in her red beans last night.

Doily #2

another doily! in peaches and cream and displayed on a round plant stand. floral motif with a picot edging

This one is actually the Zinnia Dishcloth, but I think it works as a doily. In peaches and Cream (a dishcloth yarn hah) on US7s it cam out at around 11″. I did not use the pattern’s crochet bind off, but instead went with a picot bind off.

How many until this counts as a phase? I just started another one.
