Baby It's Cold Outside....

And man, it really is cold outside: 27F and it feels like 18F! (= -3C and it feels like -8C) 

That is nothing compared to the temperatures Master C. is experiencing in Spokane right now: 15F and it feels like 1F! (-9C feels like -17C!!!) His poor room mate who is all the way from Hawaii...  Brrrrr! 

Anyway, I wanted to show you my first ever proper knitting project: the Lacy Keyhole Scarf! I'm mighty impressed if I do say so myself. This little project has given me enough confidence to start another knitting project. I signed up for a hat knitting class (also on Craftsy) so maybe it is time for that... How exciting!

Otherwise things are fairly quiet over here. It is cold, but bright and sunny out here. I just received the cancellation call on my lesson at Little Bit. Thank goodness I now don't have to venture outside for an hour and a half with twenty layers on. 

Tomorrow is the Makers Market at the Tolt Yarn & Wool store and in the evening we will celebrate the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony here in our little town. They always serve hot chocolate and chili and things like that for free and we will need it with this cold! I think we might take the car this time! 

Two more weeks of finals etc to go and then The Holidays will be here! We've planned a few days on Crystal Mountain again (remember these pics from last year?)...

... and we will celebrate X-Mas in Tacoma with the in-laws. Otherwise nothing is planned which is just fine with me...

Hope everybody is staying warm and dry this weekend!


  1. Hello :-)

    Your scarf turned out beautifully! I love it, and it looks great with that dress too.

    As for your gorgeous pictures, they make me want to pack my bags and head over to the northern hemisphere right now! There is nothing more magical than a white Christmas. Something we will never experience down here in Australia but I did get to experience it in Idaho once when I was a Kid and another time in Vancouver where it was apparently a 'good' year rather than their usual grey sludgy year :-)

  2. you never cease to amaze! The scarf is lovely, beautiful work! Oh how I would love to join in the festivities over there with you. But I am enjoying my own preparations for the winter break, physically and mentally. And knitting up a storm, however, wish I had seen this pattern before I started, it is so cute. We're having a bit of a cold spell too. Keep sharing your creations!


How wonderful to hear from you!

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
