Knitting and Stitching

Not too much going on during this cold, cold January except a little knitting and stitching. Not a bad way, though, to spend a cold, gray day.

First of all, thanks for all the kind comments on Jenny Bean's contributions to my MMIRR! As you can see, the church is framed and under roof, and the bricks and windows are going in. I'm really needing a lot of good light, however, for this linen. My DH has loaned me his desk lamp, so that has helped quite a bit. I'm thinking I may also need a stronger pair of reading glasses, though!

On the knitting front, I pulled out a scarf that I had started awhile ago; it's the "Flying V Scarf" by Iris Schreier in Exquisite Little Knits. The yarn is Moda Dea's Cache, a bulky 75% wool, 22% acrylic, and 3% polyester blend. I like the colorway and the pattern, but I'd select a softer and lighter weight yarn if I make another. I love having a project on the needles during the winter months.

Hope you are all staying warm and enjoying your January projects as well. Until next time, happy stitching and knitting!

I love the way the church is looking under construction.
The scarf is pretty colours.
I only crochet, but would love to knit.
