Snow Days!

Monday was a national holiday, so I came home Friday all prepared for a 3 day weekend. It was actually quite restorative and definitely brought the fiber mojo back.  Then it snowed.

It started snowing early enough Tuesday to get school cancelled, and then it continued to snow. It snowed until after I went to bed, and just after lunch the wind also began to howl. It was enough that my darling husband, who never ever misses work, actually came home early. People up north will probably laugh at our definition of a major snow event (we got 8.5 inches here), but the county is pretty much shut down. Our Georgia-born puppy doesn’t seem to know she’s not supposed to like snow, but everyone else is staying inside.



It means I’ve gotten plenty of knitting done though. I finished up the body of Flutter, and started the first belled sleeve. I also started a test knit, got a couple pattern proposals going, and spun a bobbin’s worth on the wheel. The house is cleaner than it’s been in months. Tomorrow I might actually have to resort to doing some of the schoolwork I brought home.

  1. Gorgeous puppy! Yay for snow days!


  2. Trapped inside with your knitting? Sounds pretty good to me! (Sadly we haven’t had a single flake of snow yet this winter in southern England.)


  3. Gotta love a happy, snowy puppy!
