Hibernation

Every animal in this side of the world has its favorite seasons. Mine apparently isn't winter. While other animals simply curl up and go to sleep, at least I don't do just that. Believe it or not, I do a lot of other stuff and as you know, I don't blog because I have to, I blog only when I want to.
I present some proof of my being active these past months:

Pattern: Lady Eleanor from Scarfstyle
Yarn: Patons
SWS in Natural Plum - 9/10 skeins
Needle: US #11 32" circulars
Finally, finally I finished LadyE last September. As I said before, I love the beautiful shades in this yarn. The yarn sheds a lot and if you have sensitive skin it does make you itch, but it is beautiful and I can vouch for it keeping me warm this winter. I never in my life thought that I would knit a wrap or a shawl. Well I have surpassed my knitting expectations. Love it, love it, love it.

Pattern: Clapotis
Yarn: Patons
Classic Wool Merino in Rosewood (Pink shades) & Carron Simply Soft Shadows in Soft Merino (Blue shade)
Needle: US #8/9
If you love to knit wraps/scarves, this one is sure to become one of your favorites (if it isn't already). The scarf flies off the needles real quick, I felt like a kid at a candy store every time I dropped the stitches. After all these years of kicking the couch and throwing stuff across the room when I dropped a stitch, I never imagined that it could actually be this exciting to drop not just one stitch, but a whole bunch of them.
