How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

A couple of Projects

Sometimes I forget Ravelry isn't open to everyone and I post finished projects and details over there. Here's a couple projects I've been working on.
On Saturday I finished up my Malabrigo clapotis. I love it. When I left off on this project back in October I thought I would rip it and start another project with it. I'm glad I finished it because it turned out beautiful. After blocking it on Sunday it's almost 5 feet long and still squishy and warm.

If you're thinking of trying out this pattern don't choose a clingy merino wool as your yarn. This project would have been sooooo much easier with a silk/wool blend or another yarn that easily drops stitches.

I started a cabled project last week so I could try out my new beautiful harmony needles and cable needles. I started the celtic tote from the winter Interweave Knits magazine. Here's the back panel and part of the front panel...

I LOVE the cables! This is working up a lot smaller than I thought. I still have to felt it so this one may turn out to be clutch size when I complete it.

What are you working on now that holiday frenzied knitting is over?
