Arctic Blast '08


Every year in Portland the media gets us all hyped up about the next impending 'Storm of the Century'


Usually it amounts to very little and melts the next day. This year they were not bluffing.


We had 14" this morning and it is still coming down. The wind is blowing and there are 3' drifts in some spots.


There are layers of 1" ice between the snow creating a most treacherous confection.


Buses are stuck or sliding off the road even using chains.
I am impressed and grateful for a large yarn stash and a warm house.

Crunch Time


Flurries of snow in Portland


More Christmas knitting off the needles.



Last weekend before Christmas.

Reconstruction


Maybe I was feeling a tad guilty after the extreme stash enhancement on Saturday at the Blue Moon De-Stash Barn Sale


Or maybe I was just inspired when my kind husband had only supportive things to say when I came home with three more bags of yarn.


And offered to help photograph the newest FOs


Without so much as a joke about the newest 'cowl craze'


But I took his suggestion to finish my blanket and ran with it.


The deconstruction (damaged section only :) is complete and the blanket is back on the needles.
