It's really, really snowing here in the South and I'm thrilled, but the temperatures are above freezing so nothing is sticking. But it's still snowing and as the Gershwins' composed and Fred Astaire sang, they can't take that away from me.
I am in two minds as to whether or not I should get dressed and go out and run errands. There are things that need to get done but it would be nice to linger...
My aunt's shawl is completed and needs to get to the post office. I have no idea if she'll like it but I so enjoyed knitting it.
Stephen West is my new favorite. This is his Glacier Sweep from the ChoreoKAL.
The yarn is Rowan Tapestry and I was about 6 inches short of using 4 balls, or 520 yards. It's a DK and not the worsted weight called for in the pattern. It's not huge, but it's reasonably generously sized. A pleasure to knit, and I hope that she likes it.
Other than that, I am so ready for this weekend. After work yesterday I did some grocery shopping so there is milk and bread and appropriate sundries stocked and ready. I am planning on getting a ton of self indulgence done today, and that includes knitting, sewing and reading my book. I am back into YA Paranormal Romance. Maybe when I'm less tired I'll get back into something a little more elevating but right now I'm all about supernatural teenage angst.
And I've spruced up the blog a bit. It feels more Spring-like. Which is ironic because of the snow and the rapidly falling temperatures. (Ah, climate change. Man-made or God-made, either way you are a challenge to us somewhat OCD seasonal people.)
I'm also about to finish a cardigan and as soon as it's done, I'm casting on another. A rational person would go ahead and finish one that is already on the needles, but there's rational and there's rational. How can it be rational to waste a snow day doing something you don't feel like doing?
(By the way, if you ever need somebody to generate an instant justification for anything you feel like doing, call me. I'm all over it.)
