First off, this is the Forza Scarf I've been working on off and on this past week. I apologize for the poor picture - too much grey weather today. This scarf is knit in two pieces and joined in the middle so that both ends are matching. It is part of the Laura Nelkin "A 2015 FIRST QUARTER KAL".
All the excitement in this area (Phoenix) this week is Sports, Sports and more Sports. The NFL PRO BOWL was held yesterday. This Thursday is the beginning of the PGA Golf Tournament - Waste Management Phoenix Open in which Tiger Woods is coming back! Then of course, this coming Sunday is the SUPER BOWL. I can't imagine trying to drive around in the Phoenix/Glendale area this week with the additional millions of people in town.
Of course all these people were hoping for some nice warm weather, but it's actually only so-so. Temperatures during the day are only getting into the upper 60's and low 70s's, and even a prediction of some sprinkles. Quite often any rain forecast here doesn't happen, sometimes it dries in the air before hitting the ground, and only in the monsoon season of late summer do we get duststorms and heavy rains. Of course, temperatures are relative - those of us who live here year around think the 60's are kinda cool, but I guess if you're from Chicago or the east coast, it's quite balmy here.
So back to my knitting wearing my sweatshirt here in the house to keep warm!
