driving with river

Don't you just love the snow! Yes, but only on the weekends... when I don't have to drive or worry about being essential personnel, and when the sun comes out and melts the 12" of snow to about 7" by sunset...

There has been knitting around here, it's just been quite slow. River survived the attack by Em-Em, a hound with a great sense of smell, finely tuned to mohair/silk blends.

My morning commute took only 10 mintues today. It's pretty amazing on day full of school closings and icy roads. Early morning knitting in the car ensued,,,

Thank you so much for all the comments on the Kristina Bag! Y'all made my day. Good luck to all you knitty olympians...Have a great week! Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Knitting!

I'm glad that River survived that terrible looking attack! Looking lovely over the steering wheel. And a great sky photo. too.

That snowy picture is SO pretty! I hope you were nice and warm in the car, heater on full blast and all that ;)

A 10 minute commute! wow!!

I love the snow/sky picture. It was such a pretty scene. I think it will melt today and tomorrow though :( I wish it could stick around a little longer!

Hope you are well, Eyeleen!

I love the snow, but only from afar. I may complain about our rain, but I don't have to shovel it.
Looks like good knitting weather, though,

River looks great. I knit one in the fall to wear to a gathering in Lyon when we were traveling. I was surprised that it was so warm. My cat, Shoulie, got ahold of it once . . . scared me to death. She wanted to wrestle it to its death. Luckily, I intervened in just the nick of time.
