comments: in january, it would be so nice, while slipping on the sliding ice...,

Alison, sorry the sweater is a bust; however, I love that Phildar pattern! I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

HELP ME I'M SNOWBOUND WITH A TODDLER...but i guess that's easier than twins...are you going to try to brave the elements this afternoon and hike over to knitsmiths?

All that's so beautiful. What a great excuse to curl up and rip away. :)

I hope you do not run out of wool before you can leave the house. But seriously that snow is incredible. Good luck keeping the boys busy!

We got about that much snow here too! but thankfully I live in an apt. so I don't have to shovel! goodness, I think you're stuck in for awhile, there.

Blizzard! I so love snow....

As you well know, better to rip sooner than later.

The snow is pretty. So is the new joice of sweater. I know it stinks to pull it out, but it doesn't look like you'll be going anywhere for a while ;). Stay warm.

Hello..found your are a wonder knitter!! I am a beginner or sorts. I saw the striped sock you made -I am looking for some advice about doing both socks- at once - on two sets of circular needles. Is that how you do yours?...Can you recomend a book or a site where I might find out how to do this?
Keep up the beautiful knitting....

In February it will be...
My snowman's anniversary.
With cake for him, and yarn for me!
lol...did no other moms get that reference?

We have lots of snow in western MA, too. I'm off to make soup, hope to get some knitting time later while DH is watching the Patriots game.

I agree with Claudia, better to rip now than later.

I just got here, Katy, but I got the reference as soon as I read it. It's time for me to take that book out again :-).

I love the new pattern!

I like the new pattern so much more! I hope you didn't trek out to Knitsmiths; if you did, you all are either super-dedicated, or super-nuts!

I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your sharing of your process.... It often happens that projects take a turn or two and it is so comforting to know that this happens to very experienced knitters. you obviously give a lot of thought to your knitting and because of that your finished items are lovely and wearable. I read your blog everyday for a smile and inspiration. You are the best! nancy

Now that I am back in Singapore, I am missing all the cold and snow that Beijing have. Leave soon for me!

Pics of finished sockapalooza-socks on my blog. I hope they will do...

A tip: I'll be sending my pal a few lengths of all the colours I used. If my pal loves the socks, and wear them a lot they might need some repair or darning sooner or later, and since my pal lives in a different part of the world it will be dificult to find the same yarn. (Anyway may coloured yarn is plant dyed, so it wil be impossible!)

The other sweater also looks very nice. Thanks for the snow pictures, AMAZING. Stay warm.

Send that snow our way! The slopes were closed all last week due to so much rain. I wanna go skiing. :-)

I luv the new sweater better. BTW, what pattern is that?

See, I heard Carole King singing as soon as I read that post title. Really Rosie was my FAVORITE when I was a little kid. I'll have to get it for John -- thanks for the reminder!

Wow, serious knitting ennui happening at chez alison this week eh! Love the new design though, it looks like 'you!'

posted by gaile on january 24, 2005

Doh! I didn't mention where the new pattern is from. It's in Phildar's Automne 2003 book.
