news, weather and knit..



help..help...i'm stuck on sleeve island....Cobblestone's body is deliciously complete...as is sleeve 1....i'm about 10" into sleeve 2....yawn. nice soft squooshy warm cozy lovely knit.knit.knit.knit.knit.knit....zzzzzzz...oh, huh, oh yeah...

what else is new...we had our first big snowfall for the year on Tuesday. About 6" total. Of course lots of accidents on the highway. I left clinic at 5:22pm...and got home at 9:18pm. Some of you who know Anchorage will appreciate that it took almost 3 hours just to get from Tudor through Muldoon and onto the Glen Highway. There's only one road north...no alternative route. Always gotta have food, candles, blankets, snowgear and knitting in the vehicles these days. Thank goodness for Cobblestone in the car. That's where i finished the body and much of sleeve 1. Elann.com's Sierra Aran is just truly luscious.

I found this little YouTube series the other day. Very interesting and inspiring craftiness if you ask me. Kinda edgy and youth oriented but still some excellent crafty ideas..i.e. that cuff, instead of fabric scraps...howzabout yarny scraps...or a mixture...hmmmm...watch...i think you'll like....




ok...i gave you weather, i gave you knits....ok...here's some news...I GOT NEW BIFOCALS....but i can't take a decent photo of them lately so no pics. Well, that's all there is for today. Knit on!

Snow must be like rain in my neck of the woods. People here can't drive when it starts raining. But OMG, it took you nearly 4 hours to drive home?! You must have an entire survival kit in your car, lol.

Wow. That's a bad commute time...
Especially for only 6" of snow!
I am lucky to work 4 miles from home, I don't have to take any freeways!
We had rain last night. Grrr. I wanted snow, guess it wasn't cold enough.

So tell me, the municipality of A'rage ran out of snow removal budget funds, didn't they? Because God knows the good city managers can be surprised by snow in Alaska.

(eye rolling) Glad you got home ok. You watch out for the idiots.
