Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

More ice... coming

Since I last blogged:

I finished a felted bag 

I finished a piece of needlepoint 
I haven't decide if I'll frame it or how I'll have it finished.

I started two pairs of socks, a cowl, and a headband. 

We've had more cold weather followed by warm and again cold. The last time with terrible ice. And since it looked deceivingly wet (not icy), I went out and slipped and fell. Luckily nothing was broken just a sprain of my left wrist. It sure puts a crimp in my knitting time! So no knitting has been done for 6 days!! and none expected to be done for a while.  :( 

Now to the weather.  We are expecting freezing rain late this afternoon into the evening.  It's looking like I won't be going out tomorrow, lol.
The good news is it will start warming up and be in the 60s by Sunday.

Yes, we even get snow once in a while. But it will be melted by noon.  And the temperatures are rising. We'll be 60 tomorrow and then in the 80s.
With our temperatures going up and down so much the plants don't know if it's still winter! And my sinus/allergies are having a field day. I think I've had a stuffy nose for a month from the mixed up plants blooming! lol.

Welcome 2015


Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.
