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. I'm sure I'll think of something to use it for, though!

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.
