It is very cold outside. I think the current temp is 26 with a wind chill of 14. Very cold for around here. Needless to say I was only outside twice today for a few seconds, long enough to put out the mail and then bring it in. It was a beautiful sunshine-y day. If it had been warmer I probably would have spent some time out there, looking for inspirations to take photos of and picking up fallen tree limbs.
In anticipation of the coming arctic air and a long weekend at home, I picked up some new yarn on Thursday.
I'm planning to make this as an introduction to hats. I started the gauge swatch a little while ago, something I rarely do when I knit, but seem to have misplaced my measuring tape and can't find it anywhere.
While at Joann's I found this pretty fabric bundle.
I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet. I've always wanted to learn to quilt and this might inspire me to make a small quilt to help me learn.
I've still not found my word for the year. I'm not worried, I know that when the time is right, it will come.
I finally took the kitchen-aid out of the box and have it set up in a corner on the kitchen counter. I think the first thing I'm going to make using it is bread. I've been wanting to make a good loaf bread, but I've misplaced my great-grandmother's recipe. It is my favorite loaf bread. I'll probably spend some time tonight searching for a good recipe. If anyone has any recommendations, let me know.
It's time for a movie, I can't decide between action or romantic comedy. I'll contemplate it while I fix spaghetti.
This song has been swimming in my head for a few weeks now.
How is your Saturday?
