3 below zero. That's the 'high' today. That's just not right. And when you factor in the wind chill, it actually feels like 26 below. So then I have to ask myself, 'Why do I live here?????' There is no easy answer!
It is good weather, however, for getting some knitting and spinning done. I am making great progress on the Lucy bag. I have got the bag part done, and am working on the longer strap. I have 75 of the 200 rows completed. I think I am going to enjoy this bag! I got on Ravelry and looked at some of the 240 Lucy bags that others are making and have ideas for future Lucy bags I'd like to knit as well. That is one feature of Ravelry I love - being able to see other knitters' projects.
I loaded up my wheel this morning and headed down to the local spinning guild and spun for about 4 hours. They helped my ply my first yarn. Pretty exciting! I think I am going to make a hat or a scarf out of my first handspun! I hope to have more Saturdays in the near future that I can spend there. Lots of spinning wisdom to glean from!!!
I have dug out my really warm winter coat to wear during this cold snap. I always felt it made me look a little like a big red tomato. Steve has a big green one that he wears, so K has started calling us 'Bob and Larry' from the Vegie tales videos. (Bob is a big red tomato and Larry is a cucumber.) I guess it fits! All I know is that it is the warmest coat I have ever owned! (Even warmer when I attach the fur lined hood!!!) And I like to be warm!
Even Sumo doesn't object to a little extra warmth these days. I don't know, maybe I do need to knit him a sweater!
Off to do some knitting. If you are in the middle of this cold snap, stay warm. If you live where it is warm, enjoy it for me!!!
Until Next Time....
