Snow Day!

Well, strictly speaking, there's not any snow here... Not far north of us, though, there's about six inches of it!  We got enough ice to close our schools, but not enough to make us lose power, which means I get a lovely day of sitting inside and drinking hot tea and staying in pajamas and knitting...

This is the Potato Chip Scarf that I've seen over and over again on blogs and on Ravelry and in person.  Someone was knitting it at a retreat I went to in September.

(Oops - I thought I had a picture of it!  It was red, I think, and definitely lovely!)

Someone else was knitting it at a retreat I went to in December.

And I'll be knitting it, out of Rowan Kidsilk Haze on size 7 needles, at the retreat I'm going to this week.

I know, that sounds like a lot of retreating...but again, strictly speaking, two of the three have also been work for me.  I helped coordinate the retreat in December, and this week I'm off to be the chaplain (which means to lead worship and to be an available ear and shoulder) at a knitting retreat at Kanuga, where they're having a real snow day today - a good six to eight inches!

All that talk about potato chips makes me hungry!! I can't wait to see your version. I've never used Kidsilk Haze and have admired it from afar. Thursday I'll see it in action from aclose!


PS-love the ice photos!

Your blog was recommended to me by Stacy Wills. I see we have a few things in common. Very fun to look at your knitting and read your inspiring words! ~ Sue
