Did someone say snow?
Do you see what I see? It's snowing, and before it's all over there may be 6 to 8 inches on the ground tomorrow morning. There are still leaves on the Aspens, and my roses still looked beautiful, and I guess we picked the last of the tomatoes on Sunday. This is what I refer to as Halloween snow, although it's 2 weeks early. We always get snow in October it seems, so the kids have to wear heavy coats over their costumes, and we slip and slide on the snow and ice. Then two days later it is gone and it's back in the 60's. Welcome to Colorado!
What knitting is going on today? Well, the lovely Anne, designer of the Wing of the Moth Shawl (www.knitspot.com) invited me to join the red sweater KAL (www.redsweaterkal.blogspot.com). Red you say? Did I have red in the stash? Of course. So I went shopping in the stash, and brought out the Jane Slicer-Smith swing coat which needs to get done, ripped out the whole back, because it was too long, washed the wool and viola! We are up on the needles. Now who doesn't need a little red in their life?
Let's see, what else? I'm in love...with my new washer and dryer. The Kenmore front loading HE4T, quiet as can be, and they HOLD A BOATLOAD!!!!!! Just cutting down to one load of jeans is making this girl very happy.
Well, I've got some work to do, some knitting is calling my name. And it's still snowing...
