News flash: Metro Detroit had a visit from a bright heavenly body today. The sky was blue and the sun shone down upon us all day long. I know for many that this is no big deal, but in Detroit, it was major. We haven't seen the sun in a week.
We've had a few more inches of the white stuff to add to the previous few inches of snow to add to the couple of inches that fell before this. It never seems to get warm enough to melt.
The cold and snow helped me get a jump on Cloud Chaser. I've knit half of the back and hope to have the entire back finished tonight. The fronts are cleverly done by picking up stitches along each side and then that collar, the star of the show, really, is knit onto the piece by joining the collar to the sweater every other row as it's knit. Since I sort of did that with my Ruby shawl, I think I know what I'm in for, but I'm a little intimidated by the instructions. I'll just plod along and cross those bridges I'm unsure of when I get to them.
Though I'm still hopeful about the outcome of Groundhog's Day, I'm afraid whatever news that furry rat brings will be given with a dose of snow. About a foot of it is forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday. While he may not see his shadow, I know darned well he's a fickle creature.
Never trust a rat.
I'd like to clear one thing up....
I was completely misunderstood when I said, and I quote, "I wish it would just snow and get it over with. I hate this one or two inches of snowfall mess two times a week."
I was just joshin'.
