Ready for Spring

I managed to run outside yesterday, only climbing over a few snowdrifts (people who STILL haven't shoveled your sidewalks... I am not impressed). Naturally, it's snowed again, but in that second of spring, I finally took off my coat outside!

Meet Shadow[]box:

I feel like I've said all of this already, but I knit it on size 10 needles, with a strand of Miss Priss and one of Baby Kid Extra. Cozy, but a little bit molt-y. Fortunately, the fuzz is white, so it blends in with the bunny fur. I mostly wear it like this, with the shawl pin, but it's also good open, as long as I don't think too hard about the invisible asymmetry situation.

And I'm looking back on it fondly as I slog through socks and mittens on teeny needles. I took a break last weekend to make an bulky infinity scarf, and then yesterday to make a bulky cowl. Same stitch pattern, which looks like plaid. They were fun and speedy to knit, so I'd like to pull them together into a pattern--just in time for spring!

(Maybe I'll save them for next year?)
