Scarves again

I have been a bit busy the last few weeks. It is hard to believe that we are going into the last full week of January. Where do the days go?

Last year I knitted a dark brown Jaeger cashmere sweater which I loved knitting and of course enjoy wearing too. This morning I finished a scarf with the last two balls of the brown cashmere. It is from a Jaeger pattern book which sadly is now out of print, but I will copy patterns if anyone wants to knit some of the beautiful scarves. (I have permission from Rowan)

Our Wednesday and Saturday classes continue to be popular. We take six students for each class and they are now filling about two weeks in advance. It is great when the new knitters go beyond scarves and start to think about shawls and then basic sweaters.

The weather here, while not as bad as the storm currently affecting the east coast is certainly miserable. After a lot of rain we seem to have settled into a trend of damp foggy days, rather like London or Melbourne!!! Hopefully it will rain soon and clear the misty weather away altogether. Mind you it is wonderful weather to stay in the warm by the fire and while away the hours with either a good knitting book to read, or knit up some beautiful yarn.
