A Very Chilly Saturday

The wind chill today was -22° Celsius (-7.60° Fahrenheit) but we were sheltered in the woods. It felt good to be out in the sunshine and crisp air, after being housebound yesterday because of a snowstorm in which the brutally cold wind was more of an issue than the actual snowfall. The trail surfaces this afternoon were uneven with soft new snow over hard, crusty snow so the walking provided a good work out. Lucy was so happy to be able to run and explore.

I was in a thrifty mood during yesterday's storm and decided to get out a ball of yarn that has been stored away for a few years - it was, in fact, one of the first purchases I made when I decided to take up knitting again after a 25 year hiatus. It really didn't work for the project I had in mind at the time so I feel quite virtuous to be making good use of it now. One sock is already completed and the second one is on the needles. I've knit so many socks that my fingers are simply on automatic pilot!

Pattern: Simple K2P2 ribbing and K7P1 sock
Yarn: Opal Crazy
Color: 1906
Needles: 2.25 mm

There is a piece of box in a tree on the left side trale. Maybe it has fallen down. Maybe it is still in the tree. Lucy knows it is there and she will find it. Yes she will.
