Winter's Fury


Another snow storm hit the area on Tuesday, dropping 6 - 7 inches. The miserable weather inspired me to make a pot of chili and to knit on Snowdrift. I finished the blanket last night (Wednesday) just as the late news was ending.

The blanket (27 inches square) was knit on size 10 needles, using two strands of Caron Dazzleaire Petite (White) and the Checks and Ridges stitch.

These late snow storms have two benefits: they melt quickly and they produce a lot of needed moisture. I am hoping this snow-inspired blanket signifies the end of winter's fury.

  1. This blanket seemed to work up quickly. I know size 10 needles contributed to that, but you must be a speedy knitter, too. Nice work!

    Maybe you could change the weather by knitting a spring inspired blanket. :)
