Monday Again?I finally remembered to (1) TAKE and (2) UPLOAD some pictures this weekend! First of all, let me present the tea cosy... I still need to do the tiniest bit of finishing work on this one, but, since it's working just fine, I seem to keep putting it off. :)
I would be happy to share the pattern with anyone who is interested, but they would have to have a copy of A.S.'s Celtic Collection for the chart... obviously I can't share that here! Overall, though, it was a really fun weekend knit, and it was a good way to use up some leftover shetland. :)
Last week, I also bought a new coat- on sale for $100. :) Here I am modeling my new purchase:

Of course, I couldn't let the new coat languish without a classy knit accessory, so I knit a quick chenille scarf:
At some point this week, I'll knit another scarf in a teal blue chenille. In the store, I couldn't for the life of me decide which color I liked better, and, since the yarn was on sale, I bought both. :) I'll have enough leftover yarn for a hat or something, but I hate hats.
And, even though I'm anxious to get started on Rogue, I've decided to finish the Sage alpaca sweater before I let myself get carried away with a new project. I've finished both sleeves (well, to the underarm), and finally got started on the body... I'm still using a provisional cast-on for the pieces since I'm not sure yet what edging I'll do. I'm going to definitely use some creamy white yarn on each sleeve cuff, but not at the waist... I also like the way the cables make a scalloped edging, so perhaps I'll do something that allows that ruffle to stay. We'll see! :)

(a weekend's worth of work on the body)
Although it's Monday, at least *most* of the snow and ice has melted along the sidewalks on the way to work... and I only have 26 more weeks of work until I start law school! Always a nice thought to get one through the week.
