Winter's Coming

I came home from my photography class and found someone asleep on my computer. I had left it on and it was warm enough to attract Shmoo.



Here is our sunrise this morning.



And out the back door this morning: Yup that is snow on that hill. The first snow of the season. I don't think it really counts if I did not have to shovel any off the driveway. We were not to far below the snow line last night.



I cast on for these yesterday and knit a little way before I decided they are not the right gauntlets for the yarn I want to use. When I read the pattern I thought they would be bigger than I wanted them to be, but I cast on anyway and they are to big. I am going to check online for a free pattern similar to the idea I have in my head and then I am going to make it up as I go along. Wish me luck.

I never thought about snow on Halloween. Can't wait to see your guantlets when they're done. That's some beautiful yarn.

I hope Shmoo didn't eat your mouse! (Groan)

You might try smaller needles. That pattern does knit up large but it's quick and really cool. Here's a web address you might be able to use: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory.php

Tons of free knitting patterns

P.S. it's cooled down to 76 degrees today. It's been in the low 80's. Eat your heart out.

Welcome to Canada where all Halloween custumes are designed to fit over a snowsuit. Shockingly we don't have any snow yet. Almost unheard of for this area.
