Mostly about knitting and spinning cause that's what I do.
To much snow
Started snowing during the night Saturday and was still coming down heavy till 10 am Sunday, well over 18 inches , maybe even 20. Today 1:30ish Troy came with big John Deere tractor opened my driveway and then shoveled porch and steps, told him not to bother cleaning car off, figuring it will melt sooner or later.
Further up the valley they only got 8 inches or so and Tatla hardly anything.
I have a ham bone thawing and will make bean soup tomorrow, using cannelli beans. Will make enuff for several meals and lunches. Lots of celery, carrots and onions.
Windy enuff that leaves are coming down as yellow snow. Everything started turning color about a month ago now far enuff along that they've started coming down. And with rain in forecast they will fall then even faster. Rain is most welcome especially after the fires this summer, some won't be completely out until snow flies (and some of the bigger ones not even then).
Have been working on Monstersocks, white pair I started and finished straight away, the pinky pair were started in May (hangs head in shame), other things I liked better got in the way. But am determined now to finish them and one other (not as old) project. Then and only then will I start something new. Hey its been a pretty tough summer.
I am really looking forward to upcoming Desert Mesa, sure to hear even more fire horror stories. After that will go down to Monroe, WA for Fiber Fusion then home for the winter. While in town before heading south will get snow tire on the car, mandatory after October 1st for …
Left home Sunday morning, due to RCMP roadblocks in various places only made it Avola stayed two nights with Fay and Monty. Then Tuesday headed north for Prince George, staying with a spinner friend (met at OFFF) several years ago she & husband were there shopping. The town of PG has done a wonderful job assisting evacuees (over 9000), discounts on lots of stuff.
I brought my spinning wheels (both Louet S90's) so got the one set up and started spinning a dyed BFL. Felt good to be sorta back to almost normal stuff. Also brought knitting of course, several pair of socks on the go. BJ has several skeins of Wollmeise that I am interested in (if'n I can afford it). After seeing her stash there is no way I could ever run out of either spinning fibre or yarn.
