Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts



As Cindy mentioned, it’s been pretty cold here (unless you live in Wisconsin or Minnesota, in which case not so much so) – but colder than it’s been for at least 8 years. Even so, the ice crystals are pretty as long as I’m inside looking out.

(ETA: And we had a very rude awakeningthis morning to a 5:15am power outage at something like -1 – sheesh!)



I just received a copy of Creative Knitting, March 2009, with my “Diamond Lace Stole” in it – I’m pleased with the photo, but could definitely use the sample to wrap up in right now. It’s about 11th down in the gallery, which is alphabetized by the first letter of the designer’s first name.

When we went to St. Louis last Saturday, some yarn might have followed me home, maybe enough for a sweater, but it’s not cooperating with having its photo taken, at least not as far as the color is concerned. The color is wine, which describes it well – it’s darker and more – well, winey/burgundy than this, but it’s very soft and nice to pet! πŸ™‚
