trying new needles & new knit pattern ....

This is a sample.   From Blog post:   " How to knit the Triangle Stitch Pattern".   
Blog: We are Knitters.   The Blog.   Link Here

I used Cascade yarn with US 8 ZEN needle.  

 This is a sample from blog post:  "How to Knit Flowered Columns".   Blog:  We are Knitters The Blog.   link HERE.  

Plus, a little progress on Spiral Rib Hat.   (red / Crimson).     I am a project bag lady.   Seems I have an assortment of bag shapes and sizes, and seem to use them ALL.   [the 'cat' is a tape measure from 10,000 Villages.]

 Jasper and Honey sharing the top shelf - Jasper, the larger cat in back has tail and back leg hanging down.

 This is the tulip tree in our yard - with snow packed inside the buds.   The snow hanging on today - when it warms up this week, the snow will melt!

Super Saturday ..

Two finishes ... The Beginner Scarf from knitting class and second hat.

Pulled out the sock set ... have the cuff going on one.   Visited the local yarn store as I lost my place in the pattern for the 2nd sock.   Also, got a quick tutorial on the sock bind off.   Hope the "pair" will be done before spring.   The knitting on small needles takes awhile!
