Never Ending Winter

There have been signs of spring but It feels like winter will be endless. Went for a nice walk through Boston Common & Boston Public Garden last weekend. And by nice I meant the walk was nice, the duck fights were frequent and the company was fun. The weather was still unpleasant. It was in the 30’s and snowing.

Most of the snow is gone but the city still felts like a frozen wasteland. That white patch in the front should be a pond. At least the park wasn’t that crowded.

Project-wise I finally finished a wrap I’ve been working on since early 2013. This is a gift for a friend. I don’t wear yellow, it’s not a flattering color on me.

Guernsey Wrap

Pattern is Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood. It was a fun knit and the color reminded me of not winter. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca. It’s a 50/50 wool and alpaca blend. It grew a lot after I washed it. It ended up about 80 inches long. It should be nice a warm and cuddley. I really like the texture of this.

My only complaint is the 2×2 ribbing pulls in the sides a little bit.
