FO: peace fleece pinwheel.

A lot of Friday Night Lights went into the making of this Peace Fleece pinwheel blanket. I ran out of yarn with about half of one wedge to bind off, and managed to use some handspun in a similar color. I used up all of my remaining Peace Fleece in this colorway, and if I were to knit this again in the same yarn, I might consider going up a needle size, more for comfort while knitting than anything else. I’m really happy with the way this pattern looks in a tweedy/flecked woolly yarn. The weather is turning cold, and I’m excited to get this belated wedding gift in the mail!

Cool weather means it is time to break out the knitwear. I wore my whisper cardigan with jeans and a scarf for a lunch date with friends last week. I really like this sweater, and I’m thinking about knitting another in fingering weight yarn.

Aren’t the zinnias I picked at the farm last week lovely?

One more: Boh being silly under the porch table. I brought this weekend’s pile of grading out here this morning, and Boh insisted on keeping watch from this position while I worked. Happy weekend!

  1. Oh, silly Boh! It’s not easy being a guard dog. Yay for hand knits! The pinwheel looks gorgeous and wooly. And I’m 100% jealous that you can wear wool again … I shake my fist at you, Nashville.

  2. Still warm in Seattle but mornings are cold and in the 40’s. Your Peace Fleece Pinwheel turned out beautiful. What a nice wedding gift.

  3. The pinwheel’s terrific! I love having a stand-by pattern that’s always worth revisiting. Peace Fleece is such great yarn.

    I’m totally jealous that you’ve been able to break out the handknits. We’ve had some chilly nights, but I only have warm, bulky handknit sweaters — nothing like your lovely Whisper.

    We always grew zinnias in our cutting garden when I was little — so colorful and cheery.
