We survived the first snow of the year, and it was quite a storm. I believe in my area we got about two feet of snow. The city has doen a great job of snow clearance, though. Here is what my street looks like, late Sunday afternoon.
I don’t think I can go to work tomorrow because the subway system will only offer limited service, and that service does not extend to me. And according to the news, people are still being urged to stay off the streets. So I think I have another day at home ahead of me.
Before the storm hit last week, I finished my Emiliana Shawl.
This is made from Madelinetosh Pashmina, in the Dusk and Magnolia Leaf colorways.
After that, I knit a stealth project, and then I made this:
This is Collina, a pattern available on Ravelry. I knit mine from Violet Lynx Dyeworks Merino/cashmere 150, an aran weight merino/cashmere blend. I love this colorway — it looks like a Tequila Sunrise. And the yarn is soft and warm. A perfect blizzard hat!
I’ve extended the discount in celebration of the online exhibition Sanquhar Gloves: A Living Scottish Tradition another week: you can purchase my Sanquhar Cowl pattern on Ravelry for half-price ($2.50) using the code:
The special price will be good for the rest of this week, through Saturday night until midnight, Eastern time, January 30, 2016.

Loki has been enjoying a lot of extra snuggles during the storm!
