Fuzzy Feet; just in time.

I finished the Cascade Fixation socks and the Fuzzy Feet (I felted them about 5 minutes after I was done with the knitting). DH likes them so far...I think I'll make a pair for myself, but with some color work.

The timing is good. DH's feet will be warm today. We got slammed with a Nor'easter again. This winter seems determined to make up for the lack of snow in the past ten! It wasn't a fun commute, but I got here in one piece, as the other poor fools out and about were being careful, too.

Yesterday I cast on for Knitty's Cozy, but in a lighter gauge. I found a gorgeous, misty laceweight merino at Fresh Purls; it's a very fluid mix of pastel blue and green. Knitting lace with this is like working a spun cloud. I don't know why I keep knitting lace scarves...they're not something I wear often, but they're lovely to work and to look at. I had hoped to make Cozy with sport or fingering weight and have a real wrap, but I wanted to use this yarn, and I wanted to make Cozy...and there you are.

Eileen: I don't recall if you're a fan of the 1960s Brit-TV show "The Avengers", but you will find much to enjoy knittingwise in an episode from 1966 called "The Girl from Auntie."

I don't know if I've seen that one. Is it one of the Diana Rigg seasons?
