A Snow Day!

Yay! It took almost all winter to get here but we finally got a substantial snow here in NC. Oh, snow had flirted with us a couple of times but this snow was the one we had been waiting for. You know the kind I’m talking about, where the whole world is muffled due to […]

Wow! I picked the perfect post to read to start my morning!
That breathtaking blanket of snow! Those beautiful color combinations in your crochet blanket! That delicious-looking breakfast! The adorable baby! Be still, my heart!

GAH! You know what I just discovered about my afghan?? I have been goofing up the edges the whole time. It looks like an hour glass right now. LOL!!! I’m not going to stop because it’s more than halfway there but dang!! Oh well, I know what not to do on the next one. :)

Great photos, Evie. Your world looks beautiful covered in a blanket of snow.
Eggs and home fries for breakfast – looks delicious. I sometimes make that for dinner too because we like it so much. I love your blanket and your beautiful baby picture.

WOW!! You live in a wonderful place. And…near a lake! Lovely, lovely pictures. I live in a place with a climate of its own. when in the nearby town, which is just 1,5 km away it’s snowing, around my home there’s a real ice storm. If in the town is raining, we’re having monsoons. But not this year. This year just a few snowflakes fell around my house, while EVERYWHERE else they had meters and meters of snow! Ha! But I actually missed snow this year, I love it so much. In manageable doses.

Evie,
Yes! The sides can be tricky when finding the right chain from the hook, especially while changing colors. I’ve also discovered when changing colors, crochet about two stitches on the new row, then GENTLY pull the yarn tails of the previous color and new color to help give stability to the sides. When you pull, you’ll see it tightening up, just don’t ‘bunch’ it up. Hope that makes sense. :)

That snow is so WHITE! Since we’ve had none at all this winter, I had forgotten how serenely still and pure a good dumping of snow actually is. I have been working on perfecting my biscuits, so yes, please share your recipe with us!

Ok, Cassadie! I will share my biscuit recipe in my next post!!!

Evie, Kim here from the class. What part of NC? We are in Northern CA now, but still own a home in Western NC near the NC/SC border. It’s smack in the middle of horse country, which is why we built there. It’s rented now. It’s in an equestrian/lake community. We love NC.

Kim, we’re in Greensboro, pretty much in the middle of the state! How glorious to have a home in western NC!! I would love that.
