Hard to believe, but we are one whole month into 2011.
Even harder to believe, is that the year has progressed without any MitBP (mirror-in-the-bathroom) type of shenanigans!
So, in celebration of that fine tradition and to show off my new FO, I just had to shutter-up! (How about that hair?! I had no idea how long it was getting before this morning!)
Too much panicking, perhaps, over the snow storm that's supposed to hit this afternoon in Chicago.
But I say NEE!
I'll be wearing my storm parka and my new cap (which has a matching cowl)! I have not a care! ;p
This yarn bloomed beautifully in the washing - had to dunk it since it is Deep Stash 9 type of fiber - even just sitting around on a shelf, or even in a bin, yarn attracts dust or just loses its fresh.
The whole ensemble will be road-tested today on assignment. Who knows where it will land? City Council? The huge salt pile on Clark & 16th st (favorite storm watch territory)? Or, my personal nemisis: Interstate 80 in what passes as the Bermuda Triangle of the Midwest, an area that gets 200% of any snow we get in the City and where people get trapped in their cars during the big storms.
So, I salute you, Midwesterners, as you go boldly into the day!
