Gopher: If I was you, I'd think about skedaddlin' out of here.

Winnie the Pooh: Why?

Gopher: 'Cause it's "Winds-day."

And it's "winds-day" here as well.   
 V-e-r-y windy but so far, no snow :)  And no need for us to move into Piglet's house.  Yet.

In knitting news, I c/o Saroyan last night and love it!  Easy, mindless knitting...  I am using Louisa Harding's Grace.  I was looking for asomething quick and easy to add to the package I am putting together for Trashy's Spring/Fall swap, stumbled upon this pattern and decided to keep it for myself (apologies to my swapee! honestly, it doesn't "go" with the rest of your package. Not. At. All. You see, it is brown.  Adnd brown is just not a Spring color.)

Stay warm friends!

Just when we thought it was safe to pack away the shovel

We've been given another "snow storm watch" alert.  This means that we may be facing another Nor'easter; but at the moment it is anyone's guess.  In the event we are again snowed under

TLG and I are all set to whip up another batch of these little lovies (look away J2 - there is nothing here you want to see!)

Anyone fancy a run

 through the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics?  Personally I am attempting Tilia using Posh Yarn's Diana, color - Matelot.

It's the Snow That Doesn't End!

It just goes on and on my friends...
(Lampchop anyone?)

These pics are from Monday

Here you see our street after it had been plowed.

The mound of snow behind TBG is a combo of the 28" that had fallen plus the snow he'd thrown up there while cleaning our cars (our little house is in the background)

 Here we have TLG sitting atop the snow that the plows have pushed onto the corner of our neighbor's front lawn.  TBG has since carved a bobsled run which starts at the top and curves off to the left - all the neighborhood kids love it!
- we have another 10-15" due in tonight, if the weather persons are to be believed.   It is almost as if we are unwitting members of a Shackleton expedition.  I fear my sanity is drifting and I am certain that sitting through one more episode of Scooby Doo will confirm my reservation in the coocoo nest :)  TLG and I did have a small outing today when we joined friends at Pump-It-Up to burn some energy before becoming house-bound again.  (School has already been cancelled for the rest of the week.)

Knitting accomplished:
  1. Gift bag made of Manos
  2. gift bag made of something Berroco silk-ish
  3. Scarf made of the lovely yarn WonderWoman sent
Pics will be posted eventually.

Snowmageddon 2010

Or, Snowpocalypse if you prefer.
 And it is STILL snowing...

Bracing for another one

Mama's got to get her knitting projects planned - we are on the cusp of our second blizzard this winter!
