Recent Niebling Piece

Just finished my second version of Herbert Niebling's Sternzopf. Here's what it looks like.

Here's the first version. Not a very good picture of it alas!

We had quite the storm come through last week and the flakes were huge and they came down really fast. Of course it was overcast, so I couldn't get a very good shot of the snow, but I actually like the expressionistic almost dreamy quality of the picture I took:

I know I haven't put much up of late. I'll probably post a picture of something I test knit for a Knitalong very soon, but I want others to have a chance to get started before I post my version.  I'm about 6 rows from finishing the big project that I have been working on for months. Of course it isn't very big. I guess it will be a neck scarf instead of a shawl unless I find an edging I really like to make it a bit larger. (The idea of working on it for another 6 months is more than I can bear, but at least with an edging you can feel like its on the way to being finished. I've lsot my t-pins anyway, so I can't finish it until I find them!!
