  1. Loved you podcast this week! And those lovely patterns you received!!!

    I was so surprised to hear that you haven't had snow in about 2 years!! No sure where you live though, so that doesn't help.

    I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Last week we got 8 inches of snow!!! I have not seen our grass since the end of October!! We get snow, then things warm up a bit, but it never really goes away, then more snow!

    You should come visit and we could build a snow man together and then have a hot chocolate and knit!!

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks for the kind words!
      I live in Washington DC but I wish I lived further north! I love snow but we are just constantly disappointed by storms that seem like they have snow potential but don't deliver. A visit to Calgary sounds heavenly!
