Pardon this brief interruption…

Scroll down for the 10Shawls2010 yarn giveaway contest.

I hope everyone has had a safe and happy December thus far!

Here on Clear Creek the week has been beautiful! Sleet followed by five-six inches of powdery snow arrived on Christmas Eve.  Early in the day Chris and I busied about preparing for what often happens when storms hit our neck of the woods – power outage.  Chris filled huge buckets of water for flushing, I filled industrial size thermoses with water for drinking and cooking.  Extra firewood was moved from the wood piles to the porch.  Bird feeders were topped off.  Laundry was caught up.  Every candle in the house was strategically placed, matches beside them.  Flashlights got new batteries.  Knitting was organized.

Then we went about our evening.  Homemade eggnog was consumed.  Gifts were exchanged.  Another episode of The Wire was watched (Netflix is a grand thing when you don’t have TV reception.) Knitting, reading…

All with lights on.

Nope.  We didn’t lose power at all.  Hmmm So much for my impending catastrophe preparation.  Christmas on Clear Creek

The farm was/is covered in a lovely white snow that still has me stopping to admire the breathtaking view that surrounds us.  We are so very lucky to live in such a wondrous place.  Christmas on Clear Creek

Other than a bit of hiking I’ve gotten a fair bit of knitting accomplished.  Behold – two sleeves!  Fair isle knitting – not in the roundKnit flat in mind-warping-eye-crossing madness.  But two complete sleeves.  Next is the yoke of the Equinox Yoke Pullover – which thank the knitting goddess is knit in the round!

Yesterday I even finished up my dyeing efforts for the coming month.  Something spicy for show and tell coming soon.

“The kids” will be out to the farm tomorrow.  More hiking and a nice “mom” meal to send Hillarey and Lance back to the city with full bellies after a day in the woods.
