Snow!

April 3rd, right? The first was a few days ago if I remember correctly. And I am looking out my front window at SNOW. At least one inch. Possibly two. I won't know until I step outside. Which I am putting off for as long as possible. But seeing as I work today and have to leave in an hour, it won't be long enough for the GD stuff to melt!
But on a good note, last night I finished my slubby yarn. It is all plied and doing the resting on the bobbin thing. I found that I had no problem getting slubby yarn without using wine. And in the plying part, I found out that some of my slubs may be a little too big. This slubby yarn is destined to be another woven scarf and there is a limit to the thickness of yarn that I can use. I'll be skeining it off tomorrow so we can see how it looks.
Until then, smell your flowers for me. Mine won't be coming up any time soon.

Please don't send the snow our way ... we have rain & cold right now. But we need the water, I think, so I won't complain. Good knitting weather!

(but any weather is good to knit in in my book)

I know. I KNOW. Snow in April just seems terribly rude.

I wore my jean jacket anyway. Take that, Mother Nature!

Gosh, we have tons of flowers everywhere, dogwoods, daffodils, tulips....... Wish I could send some to you.

I've not woven with handspun slub yarns before but that sounds like a good idea to try. I've discovered that slubs (even large ones) seem to disappear when knitted. Weaving sounds like a better thing to do with that type of yarn. Will we get pictures?????
