snowier


Today we awoke to a surprise dumping of snow. The weatherman is forecasting 15cm of snow through the day, tapering off later in the afternoon. Now, do I wait for the snow to stop before shoveling? Or shovel now before it's packed down and then shovel once more later this afternoon? Hmmm, the latter I think.

Clue #2 for the mystery KAL arrived in my Ravelry message box last night - 12 rounds for the thumb gusset. As I suspected, clues seem to be timed to arrive weekly so that the KAL wraps up at the end of the month. Makes sense, I suppose, but if it keeps snowing around here I could really use the finished mitts a lot sooner. And depending on how much yarn it takes, I might just knit them as full mitts instead of fingerless mitts!

I'm really glad that we got the shoveling discussion out of the way yesterday...

I like your idea about making full mittens. Mitts without fingers are not the best for shoveling snow!!

We got dumped on, on the southside of the lake. How did you fare?
