Snow!

Yuck. It snowed today. In case you don't know, I am NOT a winter person. I'd like snow for Christmas and maybe into the middle of January and that's enough for me.

I hibernated into my workroom and did some work on another RR piece, but have no picture yet (don't have enough done to show). I seem to be on a waste canvas kick lately, or maybe it's a hankering to do some cross stitch. It's time consuming, but I love the results.

Any of you who are knitters might like to check out http://masondixonknitting.com and look at the entry for Oct 10. They have created a pattern for 'The Perfect Sweater' and the pattern, along with some variations, is published there. Their blog is usually quite interesting too and is well worth a look-see. They also have a book out called: Mason Dixon Knitting, The Curious Knitters Guide. I have it in my library and found it to be an excellent read, along with some nice patterns.
