Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Please Let It Snow


                                                                   Yes, but where?

Welcome to Lake Tahoe, a Winter Wonderland, a mecca for skiers, snowboarders and California families who want their kids to see what snow looks like.  Guess what, it hasn't seriously snowed (I'm talking a foot or more) since before Thanksgiving around here so for those visiting, get your butt over to the bike rental/ former ski rental shop and get some exercise and have fun!  The biking is out there!

The big resorts, like Squaw Valley and Northstar make snow and I hear they are doing pretty well.   Shaun White, the snowboard star,  is calling Northstar his home base this winter and their snowboard park is supposed to be really awesome., but for the smaller areas that don't make snow, it's been a bummer:


Even the snowplows want to see some snow so they can get back to work:


Finishing my Sweetheart Pullover:

   The sleeves look short, but I have been assured that the drop sleeves will add several inches to them.                                                                                 

Just started knitting The Brady Scarf with Kauni Effektgarn yarn that I bought at Stitches West last year.
This is my first project using this yarn and I can't wait to see how the coloring evolves as I go along.  Here's a picture from Ravelry:


   Here's the yarn I'm using:


Happy Fiber Arts Friday!  Check out WisdomBeginsinWonder to see what other bloggers are up to.


  1. I've been thinking about Kauni patterns too, the scarf shows the color changes really well.

  2. oooh, we put spoons under our pillows, wore our pj's inside out, put icecubes in the toilet (yes, my kids really did) in hopes of snow. We got a couple of inches. Michigan is way below our normals.

    The sweetheart sweater is beautiful. I love the scarf you are knitting too. I have to admit that I thought it was felted. It looks like some nuno-felted shawls/scarves I've seen. Wow! Knitted? Who knew?
