My first snow day off of the year. Actually, it's my regular day off, so the best thing is I don't have to make it up at the end of the school year. D is home too, as his work was cancelled. The blizzard wasn't all it was cracked up to be in our neck of the woods. So far we have maybe a foot of snow, plus some big drifts like this one at the porch door, about 3 feet high. D has it cleared now, so maybe Tuffy will venture out for a few minutes.
We were well-prepared for any power outages. In December we had a gas fireplace installed. If we do lose power like we did for 3 days two years ago, we won't freeze to death.
D doesn't wear sweaters, but I guess the cold has gotten to him as for the first time he asked me to knit him one! I had just frogged the few inches of a vest I'd started for myself which wasn't working to gauge, and decided the Beaverslide Dry Goods yarn would be just the thing for Cobblestone. As you can see this will be the second time I've made this sweater. Now that I've gotten past the 2 inches of waistband and joined in the round, it's going a lot faster. Too bad it takes a lot longer to knit a sweater for someone 6' 2" compared with someone a foot shorter.
OK, so I've been distracted from Cobblestone by something I'm knitting for that someone a foot shorter, i.e. myself. I've had the nubby black and white thick-and-thin Adrienne Vittadini forever, I believe from one of the last JCA sales before they were discontinued years ago (both the sales and the yarn). I've just started the ribbed waistband.
