We are in the midst of a rainy week...
stuck between a couple of nor-easters that have traveled up the coast.
Any one with any sense has stayed inside and sought shelter.
Even Kenny decided to forgo his usual trek out to see Lucille 1, 2 and 3.
Luckily, the Lucilles came to him!
When it wasn't outright raining, the air was thick with moisture...
so foggy that even the clouds were not visible.
And I'm not sure that there even was a sun behind all that moisture!
Everyone is patiently awaiting sunshine and drier conditions...
and taking their meals under roof.
The sheep don't even seem to notice the rain.
I suppose when you are wearing such a thick wooly coat,
the rain is not an issue.
I put the sheep's hay inside their houses, though,
hoping that might convince them to go indoors.
Looks like two out of three understood.
While the rain fell, I stayed inside knitting and making Christmas ornaments.
These snowflakes will dry over the next day and then I will cover them in glitter or fake snow.
This is such an easy project and one that children can easily do.
Simply roll out the dough with a rolling pin, cut out the shape, poke a hole for a hanger,
and allow to air-dry.
I'll take a photo of the finished product after it's hung on the tree.
My present knitting projects are two pairs of leg warmers to wear with boots.
Unable to find patterns for exactly what I wanted, I decided to write my own patterns.
This pair, cabled, is knit of baby alpaca.
The second pair was inspired by leg warmers that have been in the Sundance Catalog.
I love the Sundance Catalog.... it's been my favorite catalog for forever.
It's filled with an eclectic style that speaks to me.
I rarely ever buy anything from it as it is way too expensive...
but I frequently use it for inspiration.
I am trying to copy this pair of leg warmers as best I can...
from leftover scraps of yarn.
So far....so good.
I have to say... a couple of rainy days can be pretty nice!
