WIPs, Wine and Catching up.

...Wednesday evenings with my sister.

Of course I can't photograph the catching up, but there was plenty. It's hard to believe we did the same thing just a week ago. And now we're only three weeks away from our trip to Madison. We're making plans...for cold snow, meeting a new-to-us cousin, cooking in ... and going out. (we even talked about looping Sara into these plans...next week!)

And amidst all that interesting conversation, I made real progress on my hat.

This is the first piece of a set I hope to take with me. The hat and the mittens will be green bordered with the purple. The cowl will be purple (I'm undecided about bordering it with green). Yes, I have a lot of knitting to do. (and no, Katie's sweater is still not finished).

I absolutely love your color choices! How clever of you to plan a trip to cold Madison in February so you could knit this lovely set. Surely Katie's sweater can wait. :-)

Yes, yes, border the cowl with green!! They're going to be a beautiful, warm duo for the cold of Madison. Katie's sweater will be finished when the time is right. Knit on!

Sounds like a perfect evening. While I did not get to do any knitting, I did enjoy fresh baked bread, stuffed shells and wine ;-)

I adore that shade of green! And I adore purple and green together - so go for it!! My sister came to visit me in September. We hadn't seen each other in 8 years. We had so much fun! It took me quite awhile to get used to her being gone again. Well, I'm still not used to it!

Love the green, Mary! But . . . up here . . . we mostly try to head SOUTH in February. (Just sayin.) ;-)

WiPs, Wine and Sister-time sounds like a great way to while-away a Wed evening. Color combo looks great for keeping you warm in a very chilly clime. Knit on!
Cheers~
