More snow, and some knitting

Rather unexpectedly, we had another 4 inches of snow today. It shows how used to snow we have become over the last couple of weeks that Rob didn't even bother to wake me to tell me that it was snowing this morning. I got up about an hour later, and there was already over an inch of fresh fallen snow. So we went out for a walk in it. Lesson 1: if you do not put your gaiters on, snow will get down your boots. Lesson 2: it is possible to fashion a set of temporary gaiters out of gaffer tape round the tops of your boots. Lesson 3: people might give your feet funny looks in the pub later when you stop for a drink on the way home.

So, it is cold and snowy outside, but inside it is warm and there is snuggly knitting. This is shortly to become the shrug from Erika Knight's Glamour Knits, done in Elsbeth Lavold Chunky AL, alpaca and wool yarn.

Gorgeous photos. Happy New Year!! Will you be at the new meeting place on Thursday? Subject to the snow levels, naturally.

Lovely looking yarn there and the walk with the pub at the end sounded great! Wishing you a great 2010!
