What I do on Snow Days


moebius scarf, originally uploaded by maggies farm.

I just finished this little scarf. You see, I received several skeins of handspun yarn for Christmas. The only problem was that no two skeins have anything (color, weight, animal source) in common. So I have to come up with projects for one skein. It's soft merino, comfy and toasty and it took no time to knit up on US13 needles.

So I'm ready for the second winter storm warning in 3 days (although the 1/2 inch that's fallen in the last hour or so might be all there is).

Oh, and next time I try to take a picture of myself remind me to put on some makeup or something, jeez.

  2. I love a chance to see what you look like, Maggie! Thank you! I don't know what it is about finally being able to put a face with a personality that makes me so happy, but it does. :-) It's snowing in Atlanta, too. And Durham, from what I gather.

  5. Thanks. It was good to have something warm to wear Sunday morning when it was 10 degrees out. At noon it's warmed up to 20.

  6. Fab scarf. :) I must must must get back to learning to knit. Managed to master (well....) knit and purl, but then sort of petered out at the thought of heel-turning. Oh, but I can finish off. Metaphorically, at least.

    Etsy has some very lovely yarns. (slaver)
