Christmas has passed. The first major snowstorm arrived. It was quite a weekend.
I have no idea where I took this shot but the sky was remarkable. 

I was gazing out my back door and found myself staring at the maple that holds the other end of my clothesline. The vine pattern is interesting. Well, interesting to me in that it is asymmetrical where most things in nature a symmetrical. That got me thinking.

What if I applied the same willy-nilly design to an aran style sweater?
So I did.

And I have to say I found it more difficult than when I create a symmetrical pattern. On this I studied every row deciding where I wanted twists or baubles. Normally I would crank it out like a machine. On the other hand, it can't be wrong. I didn't mark down where I twisted so I'll never be making the same exact sweater again.

I'll be ready for something plain after this.
And now for the cute portion of the blog....

 I can't decide if he's praying or hiding.
