I'm not sure how this snuck up on us. We're a watchful people when it comes to snow. We knew it was supposed to snow yesterday and it did. An inch or two and it was sunny by the afternoon.
Pk and his brother in law Brian are on their way to Baltimore for the wood show. Brian called last night and said we were due for some more snow today and did Peter Kevin still want to go? Of course the answer was yes but I didn't know it was going to snow more. I looked at the NOAA site and sure enough, snow up and down the east coast. It's coming down heavy right now. I leaned out my bedroom window to take the photo. I will worry until he texts me and lets me know they got there safely. It's only about 100 miles but people drive like crazies in the snow.
And if you can ignore the messy bedroom, here's a photo of Pk in the nearly finished sweater. You can see where I started the right sleeve. I ripped that one out last night and picked it up again. I picked up too many stitches the first time and it was puckery. He didn't mind but I wasn't satisfied. It's much better now and I have about 9 inches of sleeve left and then the other side.
Pk is over the moon with this. He loves the rolled collar and the overall bumpy texture of the handspun. I can't describe how soft this is. I've moved the sleeves onto dpns and it's a bit of a pain to keep turning the large sweater as I knit them but it's nice to see the end.
I have a quiet weekend in store filled with inside chores. Cleaning and laundry and putting away of the decorations. The kind of things that are routine but make you feel good when they're done.
And I have a feeling I'll have to shovel some snow.
