Today looking out the window is picture postcard quality. The trees all have a light dusting of snow. The temp has been hovering just about and just below freezing. Just above, and everything drips. Just below, and all that dripped is now frozen.

Thursday, we're supposed to get rain during the day (33 degrees F), and rain during the night (31 degrees F). What are the odds that Friday will be a frozen rain day from school? I haven't mentioned that to the offspring - I don't want to hear them calculating those odds every 10 minutes until then.

I finished the last of the yarn from the dye experiment. I really like how it came out. Now to decide on a pattern...


This is one of those cases where washing the yarn after spinning makes a huge change.
I didn't get my closeup for the after shot as close as I should, but you can still see the difference it makes.

Nice yarn!

Are the kids to the point where they've had so many snow days that school will extend further into June? --Syl

Thanks!

No, not yet - they've only missed two days so far this year.
