So all the local news casters and websites and everthing are on HIGH ALERT. Interviewing the salt truck guy and whatnot. Because of this:
Oooooh 3 inches! Scary!
And we might get another 4 or 5! Whatever will we do?
Dude it’s Cleveland. Snow in Feb. should not be this big of a deal. Although I guess I understand it being a logistical nightmare with the debates in town… still. I don’t think this amount of WINTER WEATHER WARNING graphics is ever necessary.
Anyways! I went on a fantastic ski vacation this past weekend and I’m still sore and whiny from it. So sore in fact that last night I was too sore to knit. Not even kidding. I have no idea why my hands would be sore from skiing but they are. I’m also too sore to put together the blog from the weekend (uh huh) so instead I’ll distract from the lack of content with some shiny objects.
Shiny #1 – A beautiful Row Counter Bracelet and set of Stitch Markers from the Crimson Orchid:
I won this set in a contest over on Shut Up I'm Counting. This blog is a new discovery for me and I’m glad I found it because she cracks me up.
Shiny #2 – Malabrigo Silky Merino:
It’s like the original Mmmmalabrigo only shinier. And silkier. And possibly even more awesome.
I won this skein back in November during Mmmalabro cast on week on Ravelry. It was a prize in the “Most Creative Photo” contest – I was an honorable mention for receiving multiple votes but for different photographs. Here are the 3 that I entered in case you’re curious (I think I’ve blogged all 3 of these before but whatever. Shiny!):
Malabrigo and Roses
After receiving the skein I immediately put it away so as not to be distracted from my Christmas knitting. But now in honor of Project Spectrum Fire and Malabrigo March I’d like to make something with it.
So the skein is only 150 yards of goodness. I was thinking about some sortof lacy scarf thing but is 150 yards even close to enough? Any ideas on what to make with it? I’d love some suggestions b/c I’m really stuck.
And according to the local news I won’t be going anywhere for awhile.
