So, that little guy saw his shadow, forecasting six more weeks of winter weather.
As a knitter, you've got to admit, that isn't so bad.

Happy days.

  2. I do love winter. No leaves to rake, no flowers to weed/water/worry about, no sunscreen to smear all over whiny kids...and best of all, no having to cram myself into a bathing suit. It's awesome.

  8. Fresh shipment of sock yarn arrived today.

    New York was actually above freezing this afternoon, for the first time in a while. Spring will arrive, snowdrops are abloom in Central Park.

    Yet, isn't it fun to keep on knitting that wooly yarn?

    Cheers!

  16. Ha, I know what you mean. I do love the sun but sometimes you just have to accept what you get and settling into the couch with some tweedy yarn is the best way to deal with these things.
