So we got close to foot yesterday morning, and then we had blue sky and sunshine for most of the afternoon. The weather here in the high desert Sierra rain-shadow is just nuts and certainly a challenge for the NOAA weather guys.
It started snowing again late in the day and all night, so we awoke to this. You probably can't see the difference but you sure know it if you're the one wielding the snow shovel, and wouldn't you know it, the snow blower is on the fritz.
This is how the front yard looks. I couldn't quite stand in my "usual" spot because there was a foot of snow there. We called a neighbor and had him plow us this afternoon. The temps are frigid and the snow will turn to ice overnight.
I decided this was a perfect day to spend in my studio. The snow makes it extra bright and the rising heat from the woodstove makes it warm and toasty - the best spot on the house.
I decided this was the day to finish weaving the baby blanket. I'm at the point of hem stitching here. I'm getting better at it. It's such a pretty finish and great for a baby blanket so that there's no fringe for a baby to suck on.
These are my remaind-
ers, but if you look at the stripes on the blanket and remaining yarn, you can see that I ran out of royal blue in the last set of stripes. I think Brown Sheep might be having a little quality control issues. I might have been a little off, but I couldn't have been that far off. I needed 15 picks and you can see by the blue on the bobbin that I didn't have more than two or three.
It's supposed to snow 5" tonight and 7" tomorrow. I am so hoping our weather guys were looking in the wrong crystal ball.
