Loose Threads: Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

We just finished digging out from a big snow storm. This was how it looked at the beginning. It was really pretty as it fell on the trees in our back yard.

Somehow I think the camera flash reflected off some of the snowflakes.

Bill just had his second cataract surgery last Thursday, so he can't lift anything over 10 or 15 pounds for about a week. I knew that snow was going to be heavy, so I made friends with the snowblower and cleaned the driveway. Notice there are no photos....it wasn't pretty.

While I was inside, I crocheted this block from a pattern in Knit Simple magazine. My daughter, Kim, liked the pattern and made a few blocks and sent me a photo. So I pulled some yarn from my stash and tried it. Even though I mostly knit now, I learned to crochet when I was very young, but I just haven't done it in awhile. It is like riding a bike ---- you never forget how. And, I can crochet much faster than I can knit. There may be an afghan in my future.
I hope you are having a good day today!!!

The weather is very frightful! We are getting ready for round two today and tomorrow with another 12+ inches. Bring on Spring, right?
Stay warm
