February Snow and Cascade Yarns Knitterati Afghan Knit-along

January was such a stinker it wasn't worth blogging about. Ha! Thankfully Chinese New Year happened at the end of the month and helped turn the bad energy around.

Today we woke up to another deep snow.

Thankfully this did not delay my long awaited shipment from The UPS guy was super nice and walked all the way up my driveway!

I had decided to participate in the Cascade Yarns Knitterati Afghan Knit-along and after much agonizing I realized the quickest way to settling my yarn problem was to order a kit.This is always painful when you are already sitting on as much yarn as I am.

I decided to go with the "Jewel" 5 color option rather than the "Original." Cascade Yarns actually posted several color alternatives. It has been fun to follow on Ravelry as block 1 and block 2 have already released. It is great to see the variation. I have some catching up to do!

The electric blanket has been working overtime. As always, I am ready for summer. Leela is probably ambivalent as long as the bed is kept warm. Mostly I could do with more light and longer days.


  1. Hey could you send some of that snow our way? You have more than we do.

    I checked out some of the block pictures on Ravelry and can't wait to see how yours come out. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together.


    1. You can have this snow! :)

      The Ravelry group has been great fun. I am loving seeing the blocks of others! Sam

  2. Better get going on the blocks! Number 3 will be out on Thursday. Your yarn is beautiful.

    1. I know! I skipped to block 2 so far. I can't hardly wait for number 3. :)
