Let it Snow!

Ann Arbor was pounded with snow last night. I took the boys for a quick sled ride around the neighborhood this morning, and then knit all afternoon.

I blocked the mohair scarf this morning. Some of my Tuesday night knitting friends advised me to block it severely, which was good advice. It turned out great - lacy and airy.

Airy scarf for Angela.

After that I knit up Joe's wine bottle cozy. It is silly, but in an elegant way.

Now it is late and I am finally working on my sister-in-law's bag, out of black Gjstal Naturgarn I got in the mail from Elann earlier this week. It is a modified Booga J Bag. I am going to knit a strap onto the bag, and trim the top with some bling-bling stuff left over from the wine bottle cozy.

Elann is evil, addictive, seductive. I spend entirely too much time there.

The Gjstal came in hanks. Normally I wind my yarn at the store where I work, but since I bought it from the evil internet I borrowed my friend Anne's winder and swift. Winding yarn is a great way to entertain 4-year-olds. Brian had a play-date with the love of his life, Alex, and they were transfixed by the winder. Dave was, too.
