My 100th Post!

Yesterday I saw bloggers enjoying easy projects while coping with nuclear powered cold viruses similar to the one that I've been "enjoying"...

  • Knitting on Impulse on the west coast of Canada has been focused on the beauty of knit and purl stitches from the confines of her couch.

  • Ysolda in Edinburgh with their sniffles has been doing garter stitch with soothingly red yarn in the midst of a cold, rainy Scottish autumn.

  • Yarn Harlot here in T.O. knit a k2p2 scarf while she was under the weather late last week.
Then Sunshine Soapbox commented I should cast on stockinette socks rather than tax my virus addled brain with the cable patterned bag that had me ready to quit knitting Monday night.

Sunshine Soapbox is a smart woman - the other three, clearly brilliant as well so I took her advice, followed the example of the others...





Gathered Pullover by Hana Jason - "CO172, knit in loose stockinette in the round for 9 inches" - essentially a giant sock. (I'm hopeful by the time I get to dividing for the back and front my cold and brain will have cleared enough to cope with the "challenge" of counting). And its red - my lifelong favourite colour!

Speaking of which - a couple of other red images that caught my eye this morning...yes, along with snow, I have flames on the sides of my car...
And along the side of our driveway, also with snow a "Burning" Bush (Euonamus alata) ...


















Thanks ladies of knitblogland for the great inspiration. Next up its time to make pink applesauce with these beauties...

Ahhhhh snow! I'm in hiding.

Congrats on your 100th post! And yes! I'm glad you got the idea rather than the specific of what I was trying to convey. Stockinette stitch for 9 inches sounds like a good cold-fighter to me. Great color too! I love red as well.
