I'm up to about 6" now and am almost finished with my first skein of Wool-Ease. I don't think I am in danger of running out - I believe I had originally bought 10 skeins of it to make a sweater for Andrew. When I have added a few more inches to this I think I will be able to stetch the knitting out a bit to better demonstrate the cables.
And now for the weather report... the nor'easter has passed through and according to Channel 6 news, has left us with 9" of snow. I haven't gone out to measure it, but just eyeballing it tells me there is more than nine inches out there. The wind chills are pretty wicked right now - 10'F right now, so we are waiting a bit to take Willow out on her sled.
Here is one view from our window:
And down the parking lot:
Hopefully I will have some clearer pictures this afternoon. This is our first significant snowfall of the winter - there was a little bit in December, but it was nothing like this. In fact, this winter has been unseasonably warm - the news channel said that this had been the warmest January on record... and I am sure that doesn't bode well.
Okay, has anyone else broken out the Tiger Balm, Bengay, or similar muscle creams to help with their knitting or am I the only wimp?
