We have been given an awful lot of snow over the past few days. Here is a picture I took from my bedroom window. A few days ago the ground was bare!
My husband took this picture of himself and the snow on the back deck. I love him, but he's weird.
Fiona brought her boots to me this morning and says "I want to go outside mum, it will be fun." I told her that was fine but she needed to put on some pants first. Did I mention she was naked? She then insisted that just boots and hat was all that would be needed. Although I don't want to squelch my tender young children and their desire to get out and commune with nature, I had to be firm, no nude toddlers in the snow, even with hat and boots on.
She threw herself on the floor and screamed the rest of the morning. I thought a bit about letting her suffer the natural consequences of running nakey bum through the snow, but decided that might not be the best parenting decision in this case.
Oh, and then, when I checked my email over breakfast I found out someone had hacked my ebay account and bought an mp4 player and camera. That kind of sucked. Luckily it was a fairly quick fix, but still I had different plans for my morning than changing all my passwords and chatting with ebay.
Anyways, I think the weather calls for a new hat. This will soon become the Trapper Hat from Vogue Knitting Winter 2005/06. The yarn is Rowan Big Wool.
And here's the swatch I knit up for my new cardi. I think this is the pattern I will use, it's Seed Stitch Jacket from Vogue Knitting Winter 2004/05. But, I also like this one, Wenlan Chia's Best Friend Cardigan. I'm trying to choose between the two, and am having a trouble deciding. What do you guys think?
