sidetracking

buy topamax 200 mg this quiet afternoon

felt like a great time to block a recently finished hat.

distractable me, though, got drawn in to the up-close

and personal of the process.

as they interacted with the wet yarn.

who knew that the side effect of wet blocking

in bijou basin ranch’s allure fiber wash would be so artistic?IMG_9089urbhappily, the hat got blocked despite this tangent.

though i hope not to get to wear it,

in all its wooliness,

until next fall.

the warm sunshine today is downright hopeful in that regard.

note: you know me and the strength of my convictions.

i am not one to be swayed by a free little bottle of fiber wash.

end result?  i really liked it.

it continues

the snow

just won’t stop.

flakes have been gently falling for two days

with a big 50 mph wind storm due to hit day after tomorrow

it was fun at first,

but has long since lost its charm.

so what do i do when

grey skies and blizzard warnings are

imminent?

i block knit things.  truth.

because this weather gets my forced hot air furnace

in full swing and things soaked and pinned today will be ready to go tomorrow.

that kind of progress makes me feel

like taking a look out the windows

and still seeing

white snow on the roof of my neighbor’s white painted house under the grey white sky,

might just be bear-able.

(although it does make me growl a bit.)
