Where Is Spring? This From a Snow Lover

I am sitting in my Sunroom looking out at the slowly melting snow on the deck. At the height of the storms we had over 30 inches on the deck. This really helped the squirrels. All they had to do was climb on a snow pile and they were eye level with the bird feeder, how convenient for them. I love the snow and the cold weather, although it can drive you stir crazy. I did get a bit of knitting done. I just finished my second Multnomah shawl in worsted weight yarn. It is wonderful, but it really takes a lot of time when doing it in worsted weight. It is exactly what I wanted though, so it is worth the work.

I never knew anything could keep my interest as much as knitting has. I do a variety of things, but this is something I have yet to grow tired of. I have been knitting I believe over 6 years now. I have so many patterns I want to knit I will never run out of things to do.

Having seen a Cat Bordhi book I might even take up socks, which I vowed never to do after several failed attempts. I believe her toe up method may be the answer.

That is about it for now. The picture I hope will bring spring.
