The Weather Outside...

is frightful! Obviously, it won't be possible to go out in this to get my zipper for Mariah today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better...




But, there are some of you and I won't mention any names, Minnie, that are impatient to see a pic of Mariah, even though my gut told me, as I said last night, that it would not be picture weather.

Even so, I have managed this poor photo for your viewing pleasure. I will post a better one after I manage to buy and sew in the zipper.




It is very large on me, but I like it and it's always nice to have an oversized sweater to cuddle in on days like these. I'll more than likely make myself another one in a smaller size though. The sleeves aren't as long as I thought they would be and I like how they are a little long anyway. No need to apologise Jodi. I'm usually pulling my sleeves down to cover my hands, anyway. [g]

Since I took the time to take a crummy pic of Mariah, I said to myself, "self, you might as well take a crummy photo of your mystery project, too." So, I present to you the newest project on my needles.




It is another Knitty pattern. I wonder who has the eagle eye this time.

This weather has also prompted me to make some socks. I'm finishing up what I call my "travel" socks...you know, the knitting that stays in the car. Well, I want these done so I'm finishing up the second sock. Just a basic sock pattern using Confetti sock yarn.




But, I also cast on for this sock because the colour is warm and I need warm right now. These are also just a basic sock pattern. I'm just letting the yarn do the work. [wink]




Stay toasty and Keep On Knitting...

Your Mariah looks great!!! Thanks for the inspiration! I just started my first sleeve not too long ago. Congrats, and hopefully the weather clears up for you soon so you can get that zipper! :)

Oh, Jodi beat me...I knew at once that it's zigzag. It's funny though how different the colour on your picture looks from what you posted when you bought it.

Your Mariah looks wonderful - and you were so fast knitting it, too. I see now there is almost no excuse that I don't make progress on my cardi...

Happy zigzagging!!
