What a day. Saturday morning I woke up to snow and it didn't stop. I really didn't expect it to continue all day, but after shoveling the sidewalk for the second time I realized that it wasn't giving up. However, like all good fibre people, my customers didn't let me down. I opened early and from about 9:15-12:30 there was a steady flow of traffic, with people picking up something to do in case they got snowed in. lol
I even brought home some of the new Riot yarn to knit another pair of socks. I figure if I'm going to continue to go to the Gravenhurst arena where there is no heat right now I better go prepared. I might even knit a matching hat!! I don't usually wear hats but this calls for desperate measures.
What a beautiful Sunday morning out there. The sun is shining and there is no snow but when the Beagle stuck his toe out the door his look at me said " you're kidding me right?" Wow, is it ever cold. Bundle up warm if you are going outside today kiddies.
I was to busy to have my little knitter in yesterday but I have to tell you that Katherine doesn't need me to continue knitting. She showed up with her Dad and he was wearing the toque that she made for him out of Cascade eco wool. It was amazing. Sharon had helped her with the finishing but she had done 98% of the hat by herself. She then picked up a skein of hand dyed Manos de Uruquay and made a lovely little purse. I am so proud of her. She has made dishcloths of cotton, her dads hat, the purse,a lovely pair of slipper boots out of a boucle from Noro and heaven knows what else. She is making scarves out of Frill Seeker now. She is 10 or 11. A great kid and I am lucky to have her. I wish she could come to one of our knitting groups so that she could show all of you what she has done. We're knitting socks next!
Hope you all have a great day. I am off to No Frills to fight the crowds at the $1.00 sale. lol
