It's a cold weather affliction.

There's something about the cool weather that make your fingers itch to start a new project every other day.

Something simple but absolutely gorgeous for some easy knitting like on the metro or in the car or while waiting in line.

I am not a scarf person, but yes, I got caught up in the Noro stripe scarf frenzy so here it is. This will make a nice gift.

Then of course I need another vest with cables.

A lovely Kathy Zimmermann design in the Nashua North American collection. I am doing yest another vest. This one in Dream in Color Classy. I love this yarn! Nice and spongy. The cables show up really well, much better than in the picture.

Knit, knit, knit!

Welcome back. Muse!

With the falling leaves and the chill in the air, my muse decided to come back.

It is a warm welcome indeed!

I have a couple of finished projects that I will post pictures tonight, but here are a couple more of WIPs. I have been very productive.

Vests and cables. Two of my favorite things to knit.

This is the beginning of Victoria from Kim Hargraves's book Thrown Together. Here is the finished product:

I am knitting mine in Noro Cash Iroha in ivory. Believe it or not, this will be my first knitted item in off-white!

The other WIP is also cable and also a vest. Tis the season for vests and cables.

Veste Everest inMountain Mohair. This is my second one. This one will be a gift.

More vests and more cables to come!
