We set a major one day snowfall record in the Nation’s Capital today. It was really something. I’d heard it was coming, so I planned accordingly and started a new project last night, of course.
I’m participating in one of those Reddit Gift Exchanges I told you about back in December, and the theme is Colours. And what better way to express colour than through knitting, right? There are several clues that my giftee is going to enjoy these from what I can see in her online presence.
I knit them in cotton to ensure that they met my giftee’s needs (it came from a long since abandoned project…what made me think I could knit a yoga mat bag?). They were a great excuse to break out one of the patterns I picked up in the “12 Days 2015” generosity-a-thon from Tin Can Knits: Honeycomb. They are clearly a fast knit…at least they are when you are inside most of the day with 1/2 a metre of snow falling around you. I started them last night and they are done now. I might steam block them, but otherwise, done. Yay random gift knitting!
