So January in a nutshell... Happy New Year! Wishing you all a year full of happiness! Happy Birthday to Mom and my twin sisters Jennifer and Tiffani (they're 18...holy cow!). Piper and I got sick, got better, went ice-skating, fell on our butts and read James and the Giant Peach (so cute). School started again for me and it's going to be quite the semester. I'm looking forward to it though, because the classes seem really great.
Anyhoo, if you're anywhere except California, then you know all about the snow and ice we've been getting. This pic is from last week when we got another 18 inches of snow in our 4th snowstorm since Christmas.
and looked to see that the tree above our garage cracked right off. We're lucky that none of the falling branches have hit power lines yet.
We figured we could both tackle one each. After a bunch of re-dos to try to match gauge, we were finally able to start them (a month late, ha!).
HERE. I used a half skein of Bernat Alpaca for this one. My co-worker has the other half skein and is cranking her mitten out now. With luck, my boss will have both mittens by springtime. ;)
THIS recipe never gets old!!
Hopefully I'll be back before another month is over.
