We are in the middle of a Serious Deep Freeze here. As I write, it is -40 C outside with the windchill!
|I took this through the window. |
There was no way I was opening the door for a pic!
|The living room with the kids in their "fort" |
(which bought me almost 40 minutes of peace : )
|I tried a new recipe for Chicken Pot Pie last night. yum!|
As I mentioned in my last post, I ordered some luscious yarn from Tanis Fiber Arts the day before my self-imposed yarn diet. It arrived last week and I immediately cast on for an Imogen Cowl.
I'm thrilled with how it looks so far.
|I've used my new favourite provisional cast on that I learned through the blog Stitched Together|
Thanks Chrissy for the tip!
I have to do at least 36 rows a day to get it done in time. For me, this is serious lace knitting that requires strict concentration. It is definitely not "TV knitting." It's taking more than an hour of focussed knitting a day, but I am determined!
If you are looking for something interesting to listen to while knitting, may I suggest the free podcast for CBC's The Vinyl Cafe? Stuart McLean is a wonderful storyteller. I know it may have never occurred to you that Canadians can be hilarious... or maybe it has if you have ever read anything by the Yarn Harlot : )
Only 62 day until we go to Hawaii! Although, right now, I would definitely settle for being in Tami's neck-of-the-woods. I will have to live vicariously through WIP Wednesday on Tami's Amis.
PS: Don't forget to check back on Friday to FINALLY see the finished and completed My Husband's Henley!
