Have you heard?
Record breaking snow has filled everyone in these parts with glee. There is nothing like falling snowflakes to fill you with hope and comfort.
We built snowmen to greet the cars driving by. We skated down the middle of the road on our boots. I blathered on and on about the many virtues of wool. Rufus and Bargy
were positively covered with snow
and still did a damn fine job keeping little fingers warm and dry.
On a productive note, I have been madly knitting a little hat for a soon-to-be-born baby boy in Seattle. His mommy is an excellent friend who came all the way to New Mexico after my second kiddo was born and who pretends (for our benefit) that her guest quarters is actually named for my family. I have big knitting plans for this special little guy, but his birth has snuck up on me (and is landing too damn near Christmas). I will send a hat now and something more worthy of his cuteness soon, soon, soon.
And speaking of excellent knitted gifts, I must show you one of my very favorite Christmas gifts. A pair of sweet fingerless mittens knitted just for me by my gracious and wonderful mother-in-law. She knit them with Goddess Yarns Julia
and they. are. yummy. Not to mention, cute. I love them.
Happy New Year!
