Now that's something you don't see very often - Vancouver's North Shore covered in snow.This is sunrise from my deck - it's a photo of a large neighbourhood, built up against the mountain, but you can hardly tell for the snow. I've lived in Vancouver for 22 years and I can count on one hand the number of snowstorms of this caliber. Thank goodness.
Cute story sent by my daughter, who was in Comox, BC this weekend visiting her roomie's family: "I decided it would be fun to make a snowman at midnight, so I dragged Sarah along. We made a decent snowman and went to bed. I woke up in the morning only to be told that our snowman was knocked over; the dog next door had come over and peed on it. So, Willy, Sarah's dog, (seeing as it's HIS backyard) had to pee on it too. Then the other dog came running over, peed on it again, and stole the carrot (which is actually Willy's all time favourite treat - he comes running when he hears a vegetable peeler). Uh-oh dogfight! While all this was happening, Sarah was banging on the window yelling, "Boys! NO! Stop peeing on the snowman!!!" That's a picture of Willy, the culprit, all tuckered out from his adventure.
It's perfect knitting weather. Here's my current "movie watching" project, a narrower version of my own Herringbone Rib Scarf, in Malabrigo. Thanks to famous Sandy, who featured it on her blog, traffic on my blog has doubled and I've had 18 requests for the pattern. If I've sent you a pattern, let me know when you've started it and I'll list you on my right column with the other Ribsters. If you are a blogless knitter, send me a photo when you're finished and I'll list you then and add you to the gallery.
