We got a little snow on Friday, then rain washed it all away, and then on Saturday, we got some more snow and sleet, but nothing compared to what most everyone else on the East Coast got. Still, it was enough for us to hunker down with our books and blankets, our tea and slow cooked beans and banana bread. Steve and I did get out on Saturday morning for a coffee and library date, which was nice, but once we got back home, we stayed in. The roads are icy and slick and we had no need to venture out since it was the weekend.
This teapot was for sale at the coffee shop and I love how it suggests knitting stitches to me, but I resisted in the spirit of less clutter. So far. Hoping someone buys it before I return so I don't weaken.
Gracie was keeping watch on the weather this morning.
We got more snow last night and the roads really got bad, but the temperatures were above freezing most of today with the sun shining, so I'm assuming we will work tomorrow.
I love the bird tracks on our porch.
I bought some gorgeous yarn from Ellen Odacier last week and I wound the blue skein and started the Adama cowl yesterday. I was fortunate enough to meet Ellen two Rhinebecks ago (that is a unit of time, right?) and she is the nicest, friendliest person! She smiles even more than I do and I've always been a smiler. I was delighted to try her yarn and can't wait to order more when she restocks her shop.
Isn't this yarn wonderful? I wish I had ordered two skeins of the blue, it's so gorgeous. The pattern is a good one too, although I'll either have to color block it or skip a repeat.
If I had devoted the time I spent on my iPad and reading to knitting, I'd probably be finished by now. I don't regret reading, but I am always disappointed at the amount of time I waste online.
Oh well, the football game is on now, so I'll get back to knitting and stop looking at snow pictures. Hoping everyone came through the storm with relative ease.
