Two Days Later

2 Days Later

That first frosting of snow has turned into a real winter storm.   Under it's influence, I pulled out some flannels and started making a quick, snugly quilt ... which I cannot share with you for at least a week because I'm using the December Block Lotto pattern in it's design.  (Any sneak peekers may get a sneak peek email with my progress soon ;-)


For a Knit Hat ...The dramatic drop in temps also inspired me to knit a warm wool hat. I've been knitting much longer than I've been a quilter, but this one is knit using a new-to-me technique and I'm a little intimidated. Sometimes I can be a bit of a scaredy cat.

It will be my slow stitch Sunday project today.

We are cold here in Louisiana today as well. But only 39 and no snow! It is a truly beautiful day, no clouds and bright sunshine.

But your snow is gorgeous! Sometimes I would like to trade.

I'm always surprised at how much snow the southwest gets. We're still waiting for our first snow here in PA. It's awfully cold and windy though. Enjoy your day of knitting and keep warm. Kathie L

No snow here yet; but artic winds @ sustained 25 mph and gusts to 35 make our temp of 24 feel like 16!! Good day to stay in and sew, make soup, and read...hugs, Julierose

Wow... we must be in the same weather pattern, only with you in the south and me in the north!
ENjoy your slow stitching today!

Oh my gosh, so much snow :(
I think it was the same storm that gave Las Veges 3 straight days of rain - a very unusual thing to happen here. I was so happy when I got up today and it was NOT raining. We got over one quarter of our annual rain these last 3 days. The skiers are happy because the mountain is building up a good base very early.
On another note, I've seen a number of blogs that I follow on Bloglovin talk about the tea towel challenge. I've looked at some tea towels on etsy and ebay but haven't found anything that really calls out to me, so I may just watch.
Stay warm!

Such pretty snow! Enjoy your knitting. New things tend to intimidate me too and then after putting it off forever, it usually isn't too bad. Then I kick myself for putting it off for so long. Hope you tackle the new challenge and enjoy. Looks like you will need the hat with all that snow.

Oh, my too cold looking for this Puerto Rican gal. But it does look beautiful. Good thing you brought in those extra groceries so you wouldn't have to go out in it. Like Gail in Las Vegas, can't find a towel that speaks to me. I do love yours. Can see two coming out of it by cutting it in half. Interested to see what you do with it.

Sophie, you're killin' me -- what pattern are you using for this hat? I have some of the St. Denis yarn in a lovely red-wine color, and I'm always looking for a new pattern!

Love those mountain snowstorms. As long as I'm not in them! Flannel sounds very cozy, and that hat will be great with those two colors. I look forward to December when we can see your lotto block quilt.

Oh Sophy that is a wonderful desert winter scene! I have fallen in love with the desert since we moved to Phoenix last year. The storm brought us much needed rain but no snow in lower elevations. Enjoy your coziness.

Good luck with your new knitting pattern. It is always nice to know that you can unravel it and try again if things don't go well the first time.
