We are experiencing a serious snow storm at the moment, which is supposed to intensity tonight, then dissipate tomorrow. The roads are treacherous, and there have been some serious accidents on the 401 near Mallorytown, involving cars, transport trucks, hazardous materials, and personal injuries. To the south of us our US neighbours are experiencing even worse winter conditions. Stay warm!
The weather is almost always unpleasant in some way in mid-March.
A quiet day here at Mist Cottage, working a little on my book, and practicing crochet. I think will be looking for a more suitable yarn, and I might have some stored away under a pile of totes. The yarn I have has been adequate for learning the first basics, but now that I am learning to do a single crochet stitch, my results do not resemble the videos and images at all, so it is difficult to figure out what they are talking about. I switched to a smaller hook, and that helped to create a starting chain that looked remotely like the ones in the demonstrations. But the chain is so fine that I need a magnifying glass in addition to my glasses to see what the stitches well enough to work with them. I think I am catching on though, it is the turning that is confounding me, for the moment. My rows get shorter and shorter and shorter; I am pretty sure this is not desirable. Tomorrow is another day!
The roads were dusted with snow when Attila left this morning. Now the storm is picking up, and it looks like Attila’s commute home will be challenging. I look forward to seeing him when he gets here!
