Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays: 10-3
After a 2 week respite from the serious cold we had in January, it looks like it is coming back with a vengeance. The dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed the no-snow/no-ice break and trampled the roads and woods for a
glorious look at our neighborhood in bare tree winter. Geared up in Nordic Ridges hat, 2 neck warmers,
Owl Cable leg warmers, Scrolling Waves socks, an Elizabeth Zimmermann rib warmer under a down coat,
Pointless gloves made with angora/alpaca under Sticks and Slants mittens,
and slathered up with BUNNY BALM on hands and face, we braved the wind chills.
This morning, it is 9*F. And the wind is blowing.
And the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday, so 6 more weeks of winter is here.
If you are getting a little stir crazy, consider bundling up and coming to the
SOCK AND STRETCH WINTER KNITTING RETREAT this Thursday, February 8.
The weather looks like it will cooperate for us! You can commute daily, or nestle in and stay with us at
The Won Dharma Retreat Center in Claverack, NY.
The STICKS and SLANTS mittens I referred to are made from a pattern I wrote a few years ago,
as are the POINTLESS gloves.
Spring is just around the corner? Well, we'd like to think so,
and planning for a spring knitting retreat by the ocean helps us wait...patiently?
Join us this April 7 & 8 on Long Beach in Rockport, Massachusetts.
After knitting we'll spend down time walking the beach which is populated by mostly gulls in April:
a perfect way to clear the cobwebs of winter.
Read all about it and register here, but hurry as it is filling up fast!
Keep warm and knit on!
