It snowed yesterday. It was a thing of beauty. We haven't had nearly enough snow this year.
Paul and I took advantage of the fresh flakes and made it into the Carleton Arboretum this afternoon for some cross country skiing.
I so wish I'd carried the good camera. The light was so amazingly gorgeous, and the little point and shoot just doesn't do it justice.
But I hadn't cross country skied for years, and I was afraid I'd face plant and break it.
I did fall.
But I didn't face plant!

Looking for a quick mitten pattern, I came across Mosaic Mitts from the Summer 2004 Interweave Knits magazine.
Did some shopping in my yarn stash and came across some older Classic Elite Tapestry yarn.
Got one done.
These are quick!

I finished these two weeks ago and never got them photographed. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with them?
Although, it was fun to do a knitalong! It's the only one I've really done.
Bekky, do you want these? They match your sweater.

I've been puzzling how to photograph this.
I laid it out on our bed. Not pretty.
I held it up. Not pretty.
Nice sunny day today - how about the clothesline?
That'll do for now.
I started this in the spring of 2012. It's 11 squares by 12 squares. I've got 117 squares done.
It's great car knitting, I knitted another square today on the way to the ski hill.
I'll get there!

Every day when I'm home for the day, before I take my coat off, I head out to the deck to get the birdseed and fill the feeders.
(Actually, we say "feed the fillers".)
Tonight I spotted unexpected debris as I approached the deck box.
And then I noticed the chewy marks.
Which, of course, is why we keep this very attractive rock on top of the deck box, year round.
Aren't all these critters supposed to be hibernating?

Already found a use for some of the new Palette yarn - the My Year in Temperatures scarf.
Two rows for the the high temperature everyday in 2013.
One color for every ten degree increment.
Dark blue line after each month.
I haven't defined a yarn for a high temp less than -10°. I hope I don't need to! We've only had a single day with a below zero high so far this year.
I'm caught up to February 10.
Here's hoping for warmer temps!

I'm de-cluttering right?
That makes room for adding stuff?
40 balls of fingering weight Palette purchased at a great price from KnitPicks. I bought two sale kits with no intention of knitting the patterns. Brought the price down to $1.85 per ball rather than the $3.39-3.59 regular price.
Now, to dream up a project.

More de-cluttering. There are over 200 CDs that need to leave the house.
Has anyone out there ever made any sales on Half.com? I've successfully sold a few things on Ebay, but haven't tried Half. I think I'll give it a try.
The albums and the turntable are going to Colorado to live with Ben and Bekky. I guess vinyl is very trendy now.
We're not going to speak of the boxes and boxes of cassette tapes that we already tossed, are we? Good.
At least we didn't have any eight-tracks...
