snow! see the mountains through our frosted window!?
and frost outside too
right in our own backyard! we went outside for a closer look and saw curious neighbors doing the same thing. while i was out there (freezing) i remembered something else that has made a recent appearance.
these freesias come up each year with no assistance from me, i think that's incredibly thoughtful on their part. i would have liked to stay outside and see what else was glittering in the newly fallen snowrain, but i have got to start packing. i'm going on a trip. to nyc. tonight!
first i laid out what i thought would be warm enough for my trip. but after feeling the snowcold on our mountains and reports of more (possible) snow i started adding layers...
and even more layers, i have two long sleeve teeshirts, a down vest, a down jacket and on top this furry coat. plus, a cashmere cowl and an alpaca scarf.
oh, and two pairs of socks, worn at the same time, that should do it right? (i bought these smart wool socks with leaves on them! cute and warm). dressing for the cold and the city is a complicated matter. all i really have are camping clothes.
it is just 80 stitches cast on, knit for about twelve inch's, maybe a bit longer, and hopefully it will distract (while adding some happy color) from my camping -outdoor -opposite of city- clothes.
i'm packing every warm thing i could find
lovely knitted softness and warmth
every knitted piece i haven't given away
this will have to shut down for the time being, although i probably ought to take a skein with me so i don't get behind, i've got more exciting news regarding these little things.
i am so SO excited. i can't wait to see my youngest and i know she feels the same. we planned it all out on the phone this morning, what we'll do, laughing about the fact that it'll most likely all change. but i do want to go spend this gift card, another christmas present from my nyc girl.
i hope you have a lovely week ahead, and i hope i'll be popping in here and there to say hi from the other coast!
