Joining Small Things for the Yarn Along today. We’ve had what my eldest calls “knitting weather” the last few days – it’s been icy, and you just want to hide under a blanket and knit, knit, knit.
The last few days we’ve had snow, followed by ice and more ice which made the roads undriveable. The kids initially did a lot of sledding and playing outside until the falling snow turned to ice and everything became a dangerously slippery mess.
The backyard garden isn’t much to look at, but I put out some seed for the birds and within minutes a flock of Dark-eyed Juncos had landed to fill their bellies.
The chickens hid inside their coop most of the day, but the ducks seemed to really enjoy the snow. Even when the weather turned to freezing rain and their feathers were coated in ice, they stayed outside, looking contented.
Much like the chickens, I spent the bulk of my time staying out of the weather. Afterall, it was “knitting weather”.
I finished knitting a few pairs of mitts, women’s S/M for my Etsy Store.
At the cuff, they will get needle-felted designs, but I’m still working out exactly how I’ll decorate them. If you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
Back tomorrow with more crafting from winter break.
