Forecast: Frosty

As in Hoarfrost.

What better way to introduce Rimefrost then along side a frosty bowl of cool vanilla ice cream!

I'm honored and delighted beyond all reason to be test knitting this pattern for the lovely and talented Knitspot Anne! I have her blessing to post my progress...so be forewarned...it's going to be a frosty spring here at Chez NK!

The yarn is a lovely offering from Deb of Fearless Fibers in the colorway Hoarfrost. I've never knit with Deb's yarns before, but I'm thinking I could easily become a convert!

Yum!!

AI speak: Poor Alexis. I liked her. Sadly, the judges probably made the right call not to save her. However, I can't believe that Michael was safe over her...another robbery. I was quaking in my socks that Adam would be in the bottom three...phew. I only saw snippets of his performance (recording issues...big pet peeve when equipment doesn't work as advertised). Mr. NK really liked it (he saw it live)...I thought the snippets were too edgy.

Happy Friday-eve!!!

Those are perfect names for the yarn and the sock. Wow, test knitter -- that's great! Have fun!

I agree Michael should have gone home insted of Alexis. Did you see the weird hair on Carrie Underwood last night.Very distracting.

Yarn and socks both look great!

Oh wow, that yarn is beautiful. But I think you could make any skein of yarn look good. Does that sounds like a red heart challenge? ;0)

Adam's performance was so weird, but compelling. Awesome in the most bizarre way.

And yay for test knitting for Anne. Looking forward to all your progress pics.

hehehe...Disco's red heart challenge just made me LOL!

Yeah, I didn't love Adam's performance, but I'm glad he wasn't in the bottom three.

Okay, back to the gorgeous yarn! Wow!! You'll be having us all want to knit the pattern by the time you done!

Man, but I love that Hoarfrost! Can hardly wait to see more!

No AI speak for me cuz I'm pop-culture-illiterate!
