Happy Easter

My mom gave me flowers for Easter. That was so nice. And I got chocolate, too.The red Hermione hat is finished. It really is long like everyone was reporting. Instead of 16 rows ribbing, I would just do 8 and the set up can be cut from 5 to just 2. That means 10 instead of 20 rows before you begin the lace and cable. Still it is soft and a pretty colour and will make a nice gift.

Another nice gift, that causes me to knit at the expense of Easter music practice, service preparation and feast making is the Noro two row scarf.
It really is magical how the colours communicate with one another. I have decided to make this one a mistake rib a la Mason Dixon.
It gives me great pleasure, except when I'm knitting and watching TV, because the room is too dark to see the subtle colours. So I've been watching DVDs upstairs on my PC. Silly.
It's dark and cold outside, too (and cold inside with a broken heater), but we're off to my sister's for a rather big gathering. We'll try to outshine the weather.

It looks like I'm going to have a little more than a skein of Noro left over from Lady E. A good excuse to buy a little more to make that scarf. I love that Noro magic.

You could stretch your stash by using a "plain" wool for the second colour. My friend is trying that with some local alpaca.
