Knitting in the frozen tundra

It is minus 35 degrees Celsius outside today, and minus 46 with the windchill.  For my american readers that’s REALLY FUCKING COLD degrees fairenheit.  I do believe that my left nipple fell off as I was walking the dog… poor Frankie is slightly confused why his pee is frozen in a stream before he’s even finished ‘doing his business’.  I hate the cold and I’ve been looking at properties in Portugal, San Fransisco and the little UK islands just north of Spain whose name I can’t remember.   My hubby just laughs but yesterday when he was stuck in a snowbank with the keys locked in the car I think he started seeing things my way….

Anyway,  knitting.

I’m in the midst of knitting a beautiful sock right now. I’m thinking I should finish off this pair and then start knitting 2 at a time on circs….I’ve been reading a lot of blogs (to pass the time cause it’s cold) and it seems everyone is doing it.  I’m one of those “joiner” type people. If Marin can do it, so can I….. she’s not any smarter than I am (stop snickering) so I should be able to figure it out.  Keep checking back, it should be next week sometime that I start and there will be plenty of swearing I’m sure.

Oh and the lace shawl starts this weekend….cross your fingers.

    Hey, I may not be smarter, but I am shorter.
