Seattle area……….snow………… They just don’t mix. At All. A bit of the white stuff or even a mention of a bit of the white stuff & pretty much everything shuts down until the roads are ‘clear & wet’.
Well, we’re now on the 3rd day of the white stuff. Beautiful, but most of us in Western WA have no idea how to drive in this stuff, and schools close up tight. So, our foster kiddo is home. And, has been home since last Friday! I have plenty of patience, but I’m sure going to be excited when this kiddo finally gets on a school bus and we have some time away from each other!
On the flip side… I do have lots of time to knit. All but one of my local clients have re scheduled their appointments for next week, so the calendar has taken on a pretty empty look. Nothing on the list until Friday. Almost like a vacation.
I’ve been knitting and sewing, then crocheting and knitting some more. One of the newscasters tonight was talking about people here in the Seattle area getting a little stir crazy after being cooped up in their houses and all I could think of was how much fun I was having!
I’m working towards a local craft sale scheduled for mid April, so I’m attempting to put items away for that. Since this is my first time doing this, I have no idea what I’m doing. No real plan, just a little list of items I think might be interesting. So, I knit for the shop, and knit a couple for April. This week has given me the time to get some items stashed. I’m also gathering a little collection of items for a major felting event, since I refuse to felt one or two items at a time.
Here’s a bit of my quick knits this week………….
On the needles…………this same infinity scarf, done with 2 strands of the white held together, giving it a chunkier, plush feeling…………eye glass cases to add to the ‘felting event’ and the ever present sock on the needles. (almost to the heel turning stage on Sock #1)
And, the take away from all this, you say? Snow storms are now the number one reason to have a big, really big yarn and fabric stash.
