Snow!


We finally had a little snow last night.  IF my shovel and broom weren't packed away somewhere it would be easy to clear walks and the car. But a MOP had to suffice....


(If you look closely you can see it leaning next to the door.)



Killer Bunny is our snow gauge.  (He's about 2 feet high.)

Tracey's talk of weaving pushed me to get to the studio and work on my latest wool blanket.  I work in stages to save my back.  It is nice to finish all the warping one day, so that you can walk in and just start weaving the next.....very satisfying.



It's going pretty quickly with this simple pattern.  I will probably be painting at the house but hope to finish  this over the weekend.  Greg is driving to Florida for a week of "work" so I will have only Layla to give me a schedule!

Such a pretty blanket! I'm looking forward to knowing enough to put on that much warp! I'm doing good to get a scarf made right now:)

You are doing GREAT Tracey. I am really impressed by how much you have learned with a class and a bit of reading. :)

Yes, it is a pretty thick inch of snow, I'd say! Pretty, as long as it goes away soon.

Saw the mentioned just begun blanket on the loom yesterday,and I have to say it is going to be gorgeous!

Love the colors and pattern in the blanket. Looks like a cozy one.

It was 2F. at 7:00AM this morning. It's been so cold that the snow is subliming rather than melting.

Stay warm!

Brrrrr Suzi. I spent several years living in Iowa...and I really would rather not experience these frigid temperatures anymore! IT's supposed to be 60 here next week. Crazy.
