We only got about 10 inches from storm Nemo, which is a pretty normal snowstorm for us. We did still have to do some digging out and plowing of course.
Speaking of staying warm..... Knitting news:
I actually brought out and finished an unfinished project! Yay! Someone give me a medal. This is my Tudor Henley that I started almost 3 years ago. February 28, 2010 to be exact (you can thank Ravelry.com for my exactness)
Also, I am making progress on my April Showers Mystery Socks:
|Front of sock with, from bottom,|
flowers, umbrellas and rain
|Back of sock with lightning .|
Now I'm in a dilemma of what project to start next. Or finish. I'm dying to start an aran cabled sweater with yarn I got at Rhinebeck, but haven't settled on a pattern yet. Or these really cool - but warm - lined Fiddlehead Mittens. Decisions!
Speaking of staying warm again.... Book News! (reading under a cozy blanket):
I finished Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter and really enjoyed it.
The story starts off in 1962 Italy with a young innkeeper who gets to know a young actress over the course of a couple of days. Then the story jumps to present day America with an older Italian man who is looking for the actress he met fifty years before. From there we learn what happens back in 1962 and then the years in between - for these two but also many others that touch their lives, as they all navigate the complexities of their lives while also trying to pursue their dreams. While I really enjoyed the story, I had somewhat of a hard time keeping track of the story when it jumped back and forth in time - in addition to a few chapters that didn't seem to fit into either timeframe. This through me off and aggravated me a couple of times, but not enough to stop reading. It really is a nice story!
