Yes, I am still obsessed with the cold weather. It's unusual to have so many days in a row below freezing, as this time of year our average temperature is 37F. It was ZERO F. at my house yesterday with a wind chill of -13. I felt every wicked prickle of cold on my skin. My hands are a mess even though I do my best to keep them slathered with lotion and covered with gloves. The little slits around the nails make it hard to spin, but I do it anyway! I'm obsess with spinning, too.
Isn't this fiber fabulously luscious! If only you could touch it, feel how soft it is... Lynn processed it according to Anne's specifications and it is 'to live for'! ETA: (40% gray alpaca, 30% gray angora bunny and purple/blue dyed angora, and 18% purple/blue dyed silk, 2% purple angelina.)
I made good progress on the Cloverleaf Lace Mitt at SnB and at home afterwards. It’s a quick, easy pattern to memorize and the yarn has a very luxurious feel to it. The pair should be finished in time to give to my sister this weekend, as it will still be cold enough to use them for a couple more months (at least).
Sadly, Hidcote has only had one evening of attention this past week. Chart 3 has now been completed and, hopefully, over the next week she’ll have a growth spurt. It was rather difficult to take a photo as all the garden rocks were frozen in place!
It feels as if I have just put down the 'facts ma'am' and not given you much else to chew on. Please bear with me while I take a break from blogging tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend! If all goes well, I'll be spending time with Emmylou.
