Weekends


A weekend spent hibernating while the winter storm visited us.  We were lucky (or unlucky if you like a foot of snow) we measured about four inches.  That's plenty enough for me.  The power did flicker twice but it happened while I was blissfully asleep and so my anger did not rise nor did my hatred of the electric company.  My husband though keeps discussing the back up ideas.


I finished a project this weekend and I'll share soon.  My thoughts today have been haphazard.  I've balled up three different yarns for three different projects.  I feel a cast on frenzy coming upon me.  Heavens!  I will regret it after the start, I always do.  The heady feeling of new projects is so worth it.  Almost like a natural and legal rush.  As I age I become so easy to please.  My new project thoughts are:  worsted weight sweater (think tea leaves!), a fingering weight sweater, a cowl and a pair of socks for my husband, who is still owed a pair after my failure to knit up a pair at Christmas.


How was your weekend???

  1. Lovely photos of your snow. I am hankering to get something started myself. I know exactly what you mean about the electric company. ;-)

  2. I wish I was there with you Karen, to enjoy the snow and cast on a few projects of my own! I am trying to hold off casting on another poncho and sweater and a cowl...goodness, it's really a rush isn't it?! I am almost done with Mike's boot socks, he really does have big feet!
    Look at all your beautiful snow, I just would like an inch or so. We are 67 today so the house is open airing ahead of the rain we are expected.
    I get angry at the electric company too and threaten to deduct from their bill, but Mike say's I can't. Do you have a generator? We have to have one for hurricanes, but since the power goes out all the time we use it a lot.

  3. The snow looks lovely, I know it's disruptive and everything but it really is beautiful, and it makes people happy too. I feel a casting on urge coming too, even though I already have 4 projects on the go!

  4. My kiddos would love your snow. They have been so sad that here in VA we just a bit of rain. Not even a big rainstorm. So glad you didn't lose power. Oh, I love all those ideas. I am knee deep in my Leaves of Grass, so I am trying to be monogamous. I do fully endorse a couple projects cast-on. Some projects just don't travel well.

  6. I always think pictures of snow look so pretty, but at the same time I'm glad it's not outside my window. I like looking at it way more than actually dealing with it. :-)

  10. Beautiful scenery. I love snowy days. Especially when I can stay home and craft! Our snow totals were laughable. But it sure is cold and windy. Can't wait to see your finished project.

    Enjoy your casting on :)

  13. Quite some snow storm. Glad you didn't lose your power. I haven't commented for a while. Did you finish "Prayers for Sale." I was wondering how you like it. I've heard it is a lovely book. Stay warm and safe with all that snow.

  19. Loving the idea of a cast on frenzy! I think I will be itching to do the same once I finish the blanket I am working on. I am trying not to knit anything else until I finish it. New projects are just too tempting... :)

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog too. In future if I think I see a snake I will ask someone with better vision BEFORE leaning in for a closer look!
