A New Sweater

Bug tells me it is time to do another post. He wants to know whats happening in our area. As you can tell, we had a lot of snow. It's gone now except for where it is really shady. This picture was taken February 8 which was two weeks after the snowmageddon. Now it's a month later.

There has been a lot going on here. Not the least of which is knitting. I finally finished this sweater which was completely knit in November 2008. I did the embroidery on it in January, during the snowstorm, and have worn it a couple of times a week since then. It is becoming one of my favorite go to sweaters. The main yarn was some Galaway that I had in my stash. The contrasting color that I used for the three stripes in the yoke and the embroidery was yarn that Catherine sent me. She had spun the fiber and entered it in the Southeast Idaho State Fair. Every time I wear this sweater I am reminded of Catherine and all the friends I left behind in Idaho. I'll try to get a close up of the sweater, when I can get it off of me.

I went downtown last week and visited the Natural History museum. I have pictures, but I'll put some on next time. I also went to have lunch with ES. I am planning on going to DC once a month to see something new and have lunch with my hubby. It will be a good way to spend a day off.

Have fun knitting and spinning.

Amazing sweater and I love the embroidery. I've been thinking about embroidery lately. DancesWithWool has been doing some lovely stuff lately. And now you! Of course I love the green. I heard you were in Idaho, and I was sorry I missed you. Great Sweater and it looks good on you! Did you say what pattern it was?

I do like that sweater, and the embroidery you did really makes it striking! Glad your snow has melted, most of ours has too, there is still piles here and there, but the nice 40 degree days have helped tremendously!!
