Blogmas Day 16

Standard

I woke early this morning, around 6.30, and it was still dark. I went to the kitchen, made a cup of tea, fetched a large glass of lemon water, my laptop, phone and library book, and crawled back under the duvet.

I spent a very pleasant couple of hours checking my emails, Ravelry and the other usual things, and when I decided to open the curtains I realised it was snowing.

Horizontal blowing snow.

Poor Mr Fixit had to go out of town today so I’m sure he just loved the driving conditions! At least it brightened up in the afternoon and I only had to clear about an inch off the driveway before he came home and compressed it with his tires.

This is the pattern I bought yesterday. It’s a good basic vest that I can use to make lots of versions in various fabrics.

This is View D. Medium length, size large. I left off the optional tie. The fabric is a quilting cotton with a wintry theme to wear around Christmas. I’m thinking of making a fluffy chenille one next.

Bright orange yarn and two beads today.

Dinner is in the oven and things are quiet. One son is home but in his room, the other two sons went out together for Christmas shopping and Mr Fixit has a class at the gym. Mrs Lazy, aka me, I’m sitting on the couch and appreciating my day!

  1. Ha Ha . No lazy lady here . You already made the vest . Have not seen vests for a long time. They sure keep the back warm. Lovely fabric. New snow this morning – quite a bit . Ploughs not sanding the corners ! already an accident there. Like a skating rink .

  2. I hope you’re OK Rayne. It’s icy out there. I went for an evening walk and nearly fell over!!
