Well, of course there is a sky..it's just that I haven't been able to get a decent picture of it so far. I woke up to rain and the obviously accompanying gray sky. After a number of cups of coffee and a bath, I decided it was time to open the curtains and embrace the day.
So, what to my wondering eyes should appear? SNOW! The biggest prettiest flakes and lots of them. It was cold enough to stick to the ground and the vehicle but not to the street. It just snowed and snowed. Out I went to take pictures but trying to capture what I was seeing was unsuccessful. Perhaps since many of them had big white spots from the snowflakes that landed on the lens. I did capture some that was landing on a yarrow head that escaped the clippers.
Yesterday, I found a slip in my mailbox telling me that there was something at the post office requiring my signature. Nope, wasn't being sued or served (thank you very much!) Instead, it was the Handmaiden Shawl kit that I won!!! This yarn is amazing. I've tried repeatedly to capture the color and I just can't do it. It goes from a light cream to a darker cream to an almost pinkish cream to a grayish cream. It's just lovely. And I think it's going to be a bitch to get into a ball but hopefully I'm wrong. I tell myself that I'll wait until I have a swift...but I doubt that happens. The yarn is bumpy/textured and very silky and slippy...or at least so it seems now. We shall see. And wonder of wonders, the pattern is quite simple...I even understand it. Yay!
Since we are expecting a long run of cold weather I'm thinking I will finish the other blue Rowan mitt and get really busy on that silly scarf. And who knows what all. I think that hat I made may get a real workout since I also decided that I needed a haircut and whoa is it ever short! It had been way too long between cuts so the difference is startling. Don't want frostbite on my ears!
Hope there are fun things happening in your day!
