The Little Snow Fairy Cardi

We have not had a real winter this year. We have had more rain than snow, milder air, and we didn't get that annual period of frigid temperatures that usually lasts a week or so in late January or February. But, darn it, we are a Northern People from "the true north strong and free", as the song says. We need a real winter. We expect a real winter. We prepare for a real winter. It makes us appreciate spring even more. This blurring of the seasons is dreary and dull.

I call this the Snow Fairy Cardi. It is being shipped to Toronto. It may or may not be really cold there next winter, but we Maritimers will help them to stay prepared and we'll send them the really snuggly stuff made with either wool or alpaca.

Pattern: Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater
Designer: Carole Barenys
Yarn: SandnesGarn Alpakka
Needles: Circular - 3.25 mm

And thanks to all you kind people who left comments on this blog and Movita's and sent cards to comfort us on the passing of Lucy Dog. It is much appreciated. Our home seems so very empty now. Sometimes, for a split second, I think I can hear her tail thumping and, sometimes, I think I have caught a glimpse of her out of the corner of my eye, but, alas...

Are you expecting me to fill that sweater, as per your previous request?


Would be nice. Very nice.
