I had to laugh when I saw Lynsey's post yesterday. At the moment it popped up on Google Reader (possibly the best invention ever), I was just lamenting that I hadn't caught any pictures of the snow before it melted to blog about. But, lucky me, we got another quarter inch overnight (hey, I live on the south coast. We have to take what we can get, snow-wise) so I snapped a couple of (out of focus, but never mind) pictures at 7:30am when Teddy could no longer be persuaded that it was too darn cold to go outside.
Needless to say, we were back in the house after about twelve minutes. My boy may not feel the cold, but I was freezing! Thank goodness for the cone of cashmere that arrived today to make some wristwarmers from. I'm almost reluctant to share where the lovely cashmere is from, as they stock the cheapest, nicest cashmere yarn in the world (and they ship internationally) but I will confess that it's here, because I'm nice like that.
Incidentally, that's his new hat - he deigned to wear it, and the matching scarf, within a couple of days, and I'm now awaiting the arrival of some more needles (how do I not own a single set of needles in any of 3, 3.25, 3.5 or 3.75mm?) to knit some co-ordinating mittens. The Ravelry project pages are here (hat) and here (scarf) if you're interested in my extremely non-expert knitting.
Oh, and apologies for the couple of days' absence this week - we were all struck down with nasty illnesses of one sort or another. Teddy is now on antibiotics for an ear infection and recovering fast and I'm feeling much better, but Adam looks like getting ill again just as we recover, unfortunately.
And finally, I have to mention something. you see that snow up there? You see it? Perhaps half an inch where it's drifted. There were no trains running this morning from our station due to the weather conditions. I laughed.
