Knitting On A Snowy Day

For anyone not familiar with the Lake Tahoe area, it is truly a Winter Wonderland. Set at a high altitude with lots of sun and snow, the lake is surrounded by ski resorts - the 1960 Olympics were held at Squaw Valley and, hopefully, again in 2018.

It snowed quite a bit this winter and continues on in March which has given me a lot of opportunities to sit inside, enjoy the view and knit.
Here is a picture of our house taken after a snow storm and one of the view from our back deck. A great motivator to pull out some stash yarn and make mittens, scarves and ski hats!

I knit Cirilia Rose's Sub Rosa earflap hat for my daughter Jamie who is a snowboarder.  The yarn is Berrocco's Peruvia Quick.


These mittens were made with one skein of Malabrigo in Periwinkle. The pattern is Chevalier Mittens by Mari Muinonen and is free on Ravelry.
