Duckie Illusion Scarf is finis!

Does this seem like the longest Winter or what??

Just when the snow & ice clear - a new storm is on the horizon. I like snow - don't get me wrong - but after a weekend with temperatures in the 60 degree f range ... snow & ice just don't 'do it' anymore.

Maybe I am just crabby. I started this winter (in November) with bronchitis. I am ending it (in March) with a sinus infection. Thank goodness - for meds!

All this has taken a toll on my knitting & spinning. I just haven't completed as many projects as I hoped I would so far this year. Hopefully, by tonight, I will be a bit more chipper and productive.

I did manage to complete the Duckie Illusion Scarf. I created it with pink & yellow Peace Fleece. It will be forwarded to Macuwita sni. I hope the person who receives it - likes it!

I did do a bit a carding too. Pedal Pushing Fairies is a pretty little colorway perfect for Spring!!!! With the sale of these battz - 20% will be donated to Muttville & 10% will be donated to Pittie Love Rescue. I just LOVE helping dogs!

Thanks, Stas, for sharing your wonderful fibers with me!!

Off to nap .... it has been a busy day!

We're getting that cold weather here on Thursday - I feel the same way you do about it!

The scarf is gorgeous, and the fiber is beautiful (as always!) I hope you feel better soon, too.

Love the scarf! I've been wanting to try illusion knitting and never even thought to use Peace Fleece. Duh! I've got enough coordinating colors that I should be able to come up with something fun. Thanks for the idea! And for all your charity projects - you are an inspiration in more ways than one. :)
