Snow Day Activities

Perfect day for hand sewing the binding on this little scrappy flannel quilt.  Part of cleaning up the studio means sewing up the scraps into utility quilts.  This one used up all of the flannel scraps in the scrap basket and is mostly florals.  The backing and binding are also flannel so nice and toasty under it while doing the hand work.

Some spinning was accomplished as well.  One bobbin of Hello Yarn Club that had been on the wheel for longer than I care to admit was finished.  It is now resting before being plied.  And the wheel has been cleaned and is ready to spin up some fiber from the stash.  This time I am going to aim for a slightly thicker than my normal fingering/DK weight handspun.

And the snow was very nice to have to chill a bottle of Far Eastern Shore‘s Dream which is a chocolate raspberry port. That is the perfect nightcap on a chilly evening.

Mother Nature’s Early Valentine’s Gift

Yes, more snow.  And this time, she is being generous.  Hard to tell an exact amount with the winds but at least a foot so far.

Snow + Ice = Hats

So far this week, we have seen heavy wet snow and ice.  And the weather forecasters are talking about a chance of snow for the weekend.  So this means plenty of time to work on my hats that are my current knitting theme.
