Sky. The skies here have been beautiful lately, Sandy, morning and night, any day of the week! I caught sight of this morning's from the stairway landing as I rushed downstairs, socks in hand, behind by a few minutes (as usual) -- it changed a lot just in the amount of time it took to quickly put on said socks and shoes and dash for the camera. It was only 2 degrees this morning, my hair was still wet, and I didn't stop to grab a jacket... this blog's a real task-master.
Snow. Three inches expected by tomorrow morning. Forty degrees by Thursday, Friday, into the weekend. (Yippee!)
Pink. I've been wearing a new pin made with beads and a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon, one of many given away at my aunt's memorial celebration on Sunday night. It was a lovely remembrance event -- rich with family and friends, full of laughter and tears, brimming over with love.
Love. I told my girls that if they can find someone who loves them as much as my uncle loved his wife, they'll have few worries. They'd already picked up on that. Smart girls.
Mittens. Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition, by Terri Shea of SpinningWheel.net, is now available for pre-order. Orders placed this month will have free shipping for the first copy (to the U.S. and Canada) and only $2.00 to ship each additional copy. Long-awaited, this book looks like a real treasure -- and a triumph for Terri. ; )
Lately, it's been a race to see if I can photograph the knitting before it gets some kitty love. I've been experiencing a period of slight boredom with the second mitten, but I can see that I'm nearing the exciting, redesigned top and then it won't be long before I pick out that red yarn and make some thumbs.
