Just in time for Christmas...snow!
Despite Environment Canada's dire "green Christmas" prediction, it snowed! And now with temperatures hovering near -15C, we'll have a white Christmas after all. No chance of the snow melting over the next few days with temperatures like that.
On December 21, we had a bit of freezing rain, and the next day, when the sun came out, it was glorious!
My knitting needles have been bashing furiously away, one "One Skein - A Stole" knit out of Noro Kureyon sock yarn for my co-worker, blocked just under the gun, and a pair of Lopi "Duffers" for another knit-worthy friend. I even managed to find a use for my frogged Malabrigo merino, but that will be a post unto its own! Eric's getting a Lopi sweater for Christmas that needs to have just the zipper sewn in. In my defense, it's already basted, and I need probably 2 hours or so to finish it properly, but that will have to wait until tomorrow, unfortunately! Oh well. The best intentions die fast as I always say! It's hard to finish a sweater when the recipient is nearby. As it was, I knit this sweater in secret, throwing it into the dryer (the one place I knew Eric would never look...) when I heard his footsteps coming down the stairs.
Besides Christmas baking and cooking, shopping and wrapping, knitting and working, Christmas Day will come whether we're ready or not! You might as well sit back and enjoy the ride.
So to all our virtual friends near and far, from our house to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
