Brrr...put another log on the fire!

The wind sculpted a nice little drift in front of the deer.
It doesn't look so terribly cold and miserable here (like places to the east), but those subzero temps moved in again...but even colder.  At 8:20 a.m. (Wed. morning) I decided to check the outdoor temp, and it was -19 degrees.  As the sun has had time to warm us up a little, it's now -11, with the "feel like" temp of -25.  Sorry, Chicago and New York, but a doozy is coming your way! 

For now, I'm happy to put another log on the fire. 

...and continue knitting the Lizard Scarf.  I've already had to frog back  rows 3 times because I missed a YO.  I'm usually very careful, so I guess I'll be counting stitches on every row for a while to make sure that doesn't happen again...or at least so frequently.

Later I have to get out in the weather...but I have some pretty knitted scarves to keep me warm!


  1. Brrr thanks for the warning! I gave up on my complicated Rows shawl pattern. EVen talking into my recording phone to help me out failed…I talk way faster than I knit

  2. It has been COLD and from the forecast, it sounds like it will be all week and into the next. I'm content to stay home and knit, too.

  3. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr...but, at least the fire will keep you warm.

  4. Yikes, that is cold. Guess our 21 would feel balmy to you. Good for knitting though, eh?
