The unraveling that has happened here is due to snow and ice. I know that many people love the idea of a White Christmas but not me. You see, we live on a hill and with snow, too often we have days of very treacherous road conditions. It was very cold and damp most of last week so the roads were already icy when the snow began to fall during the Christmas Eve service. By the time we got home, I knew it was going to be a rough go. The kids managed to get here for a short but lovely brunch on Christmas but we sent them off before it got dark and held our breath until we got the “home safe”texts. Tuesday we entertained ourselves watching car after car attempt to get up the hill only to slip and slide around. We didn’t have anywhere to go so we just stayed put. The sad news was that even the mail carrier couldn’t get here and I was expecting a package. Oh well. Plenty of time for knitting. I got past the short rows and increases on my Birkin and finished the short rows on a vest for our tiny person. Then I was back to the sleeves on my Ready for Fall sweater. And there was time for pilates, tea, and reading. A rather lovely day. I heard that the neighborhood association is planning to hire a sanding truck and plough which is good news.
Did you read this blog post? I have that book on my TBR list and now I am thinking it would be fun to use colors from a book cover to inspire a knitting project. Anyone want to play?
Hope your holiday was wonderful and that your yarn is not unraveling as we head into the new year.
p.s. I am trying to figure out Bloglovin’
