It's Up to Your Knees Out There!

OH! Listen to my MinnesOta accent when I tell you this winter storm was a dOOOzy! Yuh.
Once again we hunkered. And we ate. The day started out with frosted cinnamon rolls. Then some nachos and a beer for lunch. And all day we had a pork roast cooking in the pot. Roasted some veggies. Oooh mama. I'll keep going. Toasted pound cake with peaches and vanilla bean ice cream. A big snowstorm is always a good excuse to over-eat lots of white, heavy, comfort food.
It's also a good excuse to knit...

I made a mitten for a teacher gift. But she does have two hands so I have to make another one. Hmm.
And I started on a new Sweet Baby Dolly design for late winter. Sneak peak:


After thousands of calories, dozens of logs, 3 Christmas movies, 10 hours of sleep, and about 17 inches of snow we were able to dig ourselves out and return to life. We felt so thankful to be warm and comfy in this old brick house. YoU BETCHA!

This photo baffled my 5 year old. She thought it lacked Christmas Spirit to have a white tree. She is entitled to her opinion.
I was thrilled by this photo! Just the thought of being the one in charge of the flocking instrument... what was it? A machine? A spray can? I don't know and I don't care. What I DO know is that we are all lucky I don't own such a contraption or I'd be flocking everything in sight. I'd also be using the words flock, flocker, and flocking in as many sentences as possible and cracking myself up. Oh what FUN!

Pantone's color of the year for 2011 has been named...
And it's pink but now we get to call it Honeysuckle. Which makes me love it. Because I'm a huge sucker like that.

 It's me Mum as a wee one. I wish I had a talent for being clever with photo captions because I would SO create a greeting card line. Besides, it has been done to death, hasn't it?
Lovin' the polka dots.
