Europe is covered in snow and I love it. After weeks of cold weather, I in a way got used to it and I enjoy the snow. This is so much better than rain. And eventhough we don't get much sun round here in Lithuania (thus the poor pictures), the days are much nicer when there's all this whiteness around. A drive in this snowy weather inspired me to knit two white items.
A hat and a snood. These were two quick knits, I wanted something on and off the needles quickly (I have enough UFOs around to start anything big already -- swatching does not count as a start, right?).For the hat I used Bergere de France Lima - a nice, soft yarn to work with. I got to remember to use it for a cardi one day. I knit this on 3mm circulars.
And here's the snood by Kate Sonnick. I knew I wanted to knit this the moment I saw it on her blog. So even though I started the hat earlier, I knew there'll be this beauty to go along with it. Notice how I am shamelessly showing off my new ring I received from the beloved one on our big annniversary last month.
