It was -8F when I got out to my car this morning and the frost was really hard to scrape off the windshield. As I started off down the road, my low tire pressure light came on and all I could think was “No freakin’ kidding!”
Last night when Kim got home from work, it was -3F. We had to play car switch around so that our cars were parked in the order of when we were leaving today. Poor Kim! She has never been in weather this cold before, and she was not dressed for it. I handed over a pair of my wool socks and told her to wear them closest to her skin and then layer another pair over them if she needs to (I find that even one pair of good, wool socks keep my feet warmer than multiple layers of store-bought cotton or acrylic versions). Also, she said she can wear her Northface coat under her new, wool one and that was what she was going to wear to work today.
I think I found a new person to knit socks for. It warms my heart just thinking about it.
Stay warm my friends, and think wooly thought!
I finished Sandy’s socks! They are Hermione’s Everyday socks. Fun to knit, too.
I brought them to her at work yesterday and she immediately put them on and they stayed on the rest of the day. I think she liked them.
And I started my sweater, too.
This shows the yarn colors pretty much spot on. I am about half-way through the first sleeve already, and I am really loving how this Mountain Colors yarn is knitting up. This is going to be the Sweatshirt Sweater without the front pocket, which is a free pattern on Ravelry.
We received about 5-6″ of snow (depending on how far north you were), but it was all light and powdery, which made cleaning off the car pretty easy. Unfortunately, the wind is really supposed to pick up tonight, so all that fluffy stuff will get blown about and create large drifts. My niece, Kim, had never seen 5″ of snow before. I can’t wait to see her reaction when we get a foot or more dumped on us at one time.
