a snowy yarn along :)
Yes, I'm a day late. Joining anyway. :)
We've had snow! It was a mild autumn until the past week when we got hit with an Arctic blast that collided with moist air coming in from the Pacific. I'm thankful. What is it about a snow covered landscape? So peaceful. Birdie has been having fun, playing with AnnaLynn and not seeming to mind the cold at all. Good puppy. More snow fell today, but it wasn't much. The wind blew and blew and now they're saying freezing rain will fall tonight. We'll see. I'm hoping not as tomorrow is our humanities midterm -- I'm sure my students have their fingers crossed, though (wink).
I added pompoms to a couple beanies and like them so much! These are Christmas gifts that I'm happy to say are finished. I'm so far behind in my shopping and hope Dan and I can finish up this weekend, weather permitting, but that's another story... Anyway, my Lottie's Beanie pattern can be found here if you're interested in whipping up a few of these for gifting. :)
That gorgeous yellow is for a quick wee test knit I'm doing for a friend! Chickadee is a soft and quite lovely. Why haven't I knit with this before?
Finally, my copy of the latest Taproot arrived and I'm eager to try the hummis recipe!
Only 17 more sleeps 'til Christmas...are you ready? Not me...
Joining Ginny :)
