Well, here on the East Coast, we've been slammed once more by some major snow. I mean MAJOR snow; 19 inches in NYC to be exact. So, I've gone ahead and taken some lovely pictures for you viewing pleasure.


Now, to the knitting. I know I said I was hoping to attend Vogue Knitting Live, but unfortunately on Sunday, I woke up with a raging case of bronchitis and I'm still not 100%. However, from what I've read, it was a great success and I can't wait to attend next year. I also heard that they'll be having another event in September in L.A. While I was sad that I was unable to attend, I was happy that I managed to get complete some of my knitting. The first is this striped sweater which was just something I knit on a whim.

Now, I know there are knitting needles still present in this photo (look at the neckline), but I promised you that this is now finished and blocked. The second finished object is my mom's coat. I have to admit that I'm happy to be done with this one, not so much because the knitting was difficult, actually the knitting was not that hard at all. The seaming, however, is a different story. It just seemed that there were no clear directions on how this ought to be seamed and then when it came to the sleeves, it was really quite strange. I'm still happy to report that this was a great success and looks beautiful! Here's the Welted Coat from Vogue Knitting's Fall 2010 issue.

I can't quite figure out why all my pictures come out slanted... lol. I alway think I'm holding the camera straight and then I upload them to my computer and they're always slanted. Who knows maybe one day I'll get it right. Oh well. Right now, I'm working on my newest design (finally!) and I have to say I love it! Finally, February is just around the corner, which means Hugs and Kisses will be available as a free download!
