As promised in my last post, I finished the Color Affection scarf by Veera Valimaki last week. I am really happy with it! I used a fingering weight yarn (10% cashmere) from Marianated Yarns on a US size 6 needle.
We had visitors from “the Coast” over the weekend – an old friend and her young daughter, who will be 3 years old in March. They left “Daddo” and the family dog at home in Seattle, and came for 3 nights. Unfortunately we have almost no snow this year, and it was pretty gray all weekend, but we still had a fine visit and some outdoor time. The little one was easy to be with, talking a lot with a pretty good vocabulary, and a sunny disposition.
We got out the Norwegian kick sled that I bought at a friend’s moving sale last summer. Mom and daughter went out on our loop road (which is pretty much a skating rink at this point) and before we knew it, the wee one was doing it on her own!
Here are some pictures from this morning, before they left to drive home. We all went up to Sun Mountain Lodge to “see the animals” (the taxidermy collection) and the wee one was wearing pants that match my new scarf, so I got Rick to take a picture of us up there.
