The 'dusting' of snow turned into this last night. I've been waiting all winter for it!! It's like a fairyland...(on top of a treacherous layer of ice).
While some of you may dream of snowboarding, or skiing, or winter-wonderland hiking on a day like this,
my daydream looks more like this...
It's the year of the sweater for me (remember??!!)....I finished Climb Every Mountain
(where was this style 40+ years ago when I was pregnant??)
last week, and immediately cast on the basic, boring raglan man-sweater that is his favorite....because I know myself too well. While this has been declared the Year of the Sweater, I'll be pretty happy if it turns out just simply to be the Month of the Sweater.
Because, also in that fireside knitting pile is...
the Never Not Knitting mystery shawl KAL...
which shouldn't be there because Clue #1 is finished and I can guiltlessly leave it unattended until next Friday.
Simple, yet Effective Shawl (fingering wt version, although I found some aran weight Noro that I'm using instead---it's also the Year to Use Up Some Weird OddBalls in the Stash)
and in honor of the snow, I'll probably have to cast on..
My dream has me knitting by the fire all day. In reality, after Sunday school, and church, and my library job, and serving the local community theatre dinner....I'll be knitting by that fire for an hour---if I'm lucky.
But I'll be there.
