I went to Cape Cod in early November and went to A Great Yarn in Chatham. It's a wonderful shop! One of the yarns I got there was Knitwhits Freia Handpaints Freia Semi-Solid Shawl Ball Merino Fingering in the color Hard Candy. I decided to knit the Birch Bark Canoe shawl out of it.

Very bright!

What am I knitting now? Hmmmmm ...

The Turquoise Zebra blanket is going slowly, about one garter ridge a day (that is 2 rows for you muggles):

Sorry I don't have a new picture. I only knit on it after supper for about an hour and it is way too big to be photographed. I like to cuddle under it though!

I have a scrap sock yarn shawlette almost finished:

Scrap shawl

I am trying to use up all my scraps this year; it is a goal I have. Wish me luck. I have enough scraps to do another shawlette after this one too. The pattern is Linus.

Lynne's socks

I got this yarn at A Great Yarn too, and I am making socks for Lynne out of it. I got the seahorse mug in Cape Cod too!

We have a scary snowstorm coming (well, I'm not scared, I'm from Maine) and we are well stocked up for all contingencies:
