Yes, I know this is not cold. When I lived in Boston, I would decide whether to run or not depending on whether it was above 15. Now with this forecast of cold weather we covered the spigots, blocked off the vents under the house, and discussed options for opening cabinets to keep pipes from freezing.
OK. We're wimps.
But on to better things. Yesterday I was enjoying our fire and started thinking how beautiful those colors would be in a sock yarn. I've done some looking and can't find anything that is primarily this blue color with shots of red-orange, yellow and gold. Let me know if you have any thoughts on what yarn might reflect these colors. I thought the colors would make beautiful socks.
And there is knitting happening here. I have fingers to do on my second glove, a toe to finish on a pair of socks that you haven't even seen yet, and I've been working on the cable sweater too. I also cast on for a 'wing it' summer top (ie I have some silly design in my head and will try to knit it) but the weather, of course, suggests that isn't the best option for knitting right now. I also won some Noro Silk Garden in a blog contest that I want to use for a hat for Tim. His studio is in the (unheated, un-anythinged) garage, and it is cold out there.
Hope you're staying warm!
