My current work in progress:

Stornoway, designed by Alice Starmore from her book Fishermen’s Sweaters, knit in Frangipani 5-ply guernsey wool in the Aran colorway, on a 3.0mm needle.

Snow Day

It started snowing here Friday night. When I got up yesterday morning, this was the view out my window:


By late morning, there were white-out conditions from my view on the couch:


Looking down at the street:


Our building engineer and his crew kept shoveling the walks all afternoon:


And at least one foolhardy soul took a car out:


I spent a few entertaining minutes watching them push said car.

I spent the day doing this:


And this morning the sun came out!


I could hear snowplows through the night — they did a great job of clearing out.

Lucy is feeling frisky today, so I gave her an early Christmas gift — a straw ball sent to her from Anne Marie in Philly.


Boy, does she ever like it!


It’s very lightweight and moves well when she bats at it.


And there is a second ball, for when she bats this one under the fridge or something. 😉

Thanks, Anne Marie!
