And so it begins

Ahh.. it feels so good to do boring stockinette for awhile (I know I will get bored soon) after following the Starmore charts (unsymmetrical). I got gauge on the first hit (I find that if I use the same yarn as the pattern I have a good chance of hitting it) and I'm off. I love this pattern and it will be nice to have so few steeks after Starmore.

So far so good. I'm doing the blue/natural/wheat/bronze pullover on the left.

Just came in from snow blowing. My driveway has about 5-6 inches so far (drifting) - and it is still coming down. The winds are so high - the snow blew back in my face if I pushed my blower towards the west. Lovely. The snow wouldn't be so bad if we didn't still have about a foot of packed snow/ice on the streets underneath it. I'm wondering if we will ever see the floor of my cul-de-sac. A guy at work told me about a tool called a chipper - guess it is heavy and you drop it over the ice to break it up. I know - I shouldn't live in Denver if I don't like snow. That is what everyone tells me.. Blaaahhh!

I made the zip version of St. Moritz, and it's a really lovely design that will hold your interest.
Have you noticed the little ram's horns on the sleeves?
Perfect for Denver snow!

Lorraine - I was reading the description of the pattern last night and I'm still a little puzzled about the ram's horns unless they are above the roses on the main pattern. Guess I'll find out eventually - right now its all about stockinette!
