1) From inside, the snowflakes swirled and whirled making beautiful patterns, as they slowly drifted downwards.
2) The reality of being out in the snow was less than beautiful however, and I’m extremely glad that I can take my boots off, safe in the knowledge I don’t have to go out again this evening.
3) It’s been another weekend of, amongst other things, baking and making. I made dark chocolate brownies, once again for the youth group at church. They didn’t quite manage to finish them this time, but they made serious inroads! I made a Italian toasted pine nut cake, a new reecipe on me, but smells delicious!
I’ve made some progress with my Jupiter Clapotis, and I’m making Megan’s Big Sister dress longer… She loves it, but has had the sheer ingratitude to grow over the last six months, and the dress is really too short now 🙁 . So I’ve ripped out the bottom band and added a few extra cms in length. I worried that the yarn would look different, but it actually looks okay, so I’m reasonably hopeful that it will be okay once I’ve re-blocked it! Here she is when it was just completed a mere six months ago!
Right, now I’m off to see what other people have been making over at Natalie’s YarnYard…
