Snowed in in NY

Laura Jean in her new GAP-tastic Cowl! I saw this on Ravelry and started right away, I knew she would love it. I want to make several more, I would like to have one. She looks great in it, of course!



The great part of having a huge blizzard in New York (that was fatefully handled badly by the Mayor) is that it has afforded me time to work in my yarn closet (big mess) and sort through some older projects and get to finish them!  I have been in since the day after Christmas when we got home just in the nick of time driving straight into the blizzard from Massachusetts.  I have the pleasure of having Dexter and Elle with me as well, what could be better?
I  have been trying to make this scarf for Susan, it was just a request from her, without any pattern, I am not sure this is what she wanted but I think it is interesting!
This is a triangular scarf/shawlette that I made as a result of seeing someone wearing a beautiful scarf under a leather jacket at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival.  I bought Mini Mochi right away at the Festival; I searched for a pattern on Ravelry for days and I did find this which was very close.  I love it! 


More bookmarks for all of my favorite people,  Interestingly, lots of people got Kindles and Nooks for Christmas, but you always have a real book to place one of these in!
AND...the third project that I have made with this wool.  I bought it years ago at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival because I love this yarn, but it just doesn't work up well in a large project.  It is too stripey and I frogged a whole sweater twice, now I have made this huge shawl to wrap up in.  I am still questioning if I like it or not.
