Today the temperature was in the 80's in Central New England. I heard in Las Vegas it's been in the 50's. With all the crazy weather around the nation, I was wondering if what is on your needles fits the weather as it is suppose to be or as it really is? I'm currently working on projects for a "typical" March in New England, cowls, vests, mittens, etc.

With this unusual weather I've had a hard time deciding just what to knit. As a result I've been doing an inventory of my yarn and using up orphan skeins. So far 4 keyhole scarfs and many, many yarn inventory cards made with a sample of the yarn wrapped around one end of the card. I had previously made Knit Picks Montevilla Market Bag, from a kit. I really like the weave pattern for the bottom of the bag so I'm making a coin purse using that pattern. The pattern is now available for free, thank heavens, since I couldn't find my original pattern! Still lots of yarn to put on inventory cards. Might be a permanent WIP. 72* in NW PA today and supposed to hit 80* tomorrow!

This Boston weather is driving me crazy as well! I've just finished a lovely alpaca shawl that I envisioned wearing through March anyway and today I'm not wearing a coat at all! My project list now seems to be centered on small objects that won't make me sweat too much!

I have put the knitting aside for a couple of days because I have some sewing I must do. Nearly finished the sewing then it will be back to the knitting.

I knit a hug into every stitch

Today it was 82 in Southern Maine!!!! I have been working on a DK weight sweater for myself, but with Easter nearing and the weather such as it is I just cast on a cute little sunhat with Green Mountain Cotton Comfort for my granddaughter.

Greetings, knitters! Having some up & down weather here in Colorado Springs, but that's normal for Colorado. Right now, I'm working on a Fun Fur scarf.


Keep on knitting!

It's a beautiful day in eastern Oregon, sunny and a warm 52 degrees. Time to put down the knitting and get some yard work done. Well, for a while anyway. I have been making dish cloths, bunches of them. They are easy, fast and fun. It's become and obsession.......

I know how you all feel!

We've had very ODD weather this Spring! I'm usually able to wear my handknit and hand-crocheted sweaters into May, but no dice right now. I just finished a wonderful Misti Alpaca sweater a little while ago that I can't wear now until next fall. I'm finishing up the Bernat Mystery Afghan--for what, I don't know, seeing as I won't need to use THAT until next fall, either. As it is, I'm probably going to give that one away. That was the original intent, but I'm caving, seeing as it's turned out so well...LOL!

Actually, what I work on isn't usually dictated by the weather, thanks to air-conditioning. If anything, I still work on sweaters and afghans through the summer, to be ready for next fall and Christmas presents. If I'm out somewhere without A/C, socks are always a good alternative for a take-along project.

It's been weird here too. It was in the 80's in March, and now in April, we've had 40's and 50's.

So I'm working on a chunky yarn sweater. It's nice to work on something that's warm feeling.
