How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Brighten my day.

In these parts, people are always commenting on the weather. Yesterday was a beautiful day here. It felt like March with a bright sun and 50 degrees. Bam, it's back to freezing with rain, sleet, and snow today. How does one escape the diagnosis of SAD or manic depression living in a climate like this? Crocheting in bright summery colors my blog friend.



Plus I can finish this kind of a project in about an hour unlike the not so speedy knitting projects.
I have spent hours completing over 100 rows on the cable scarf and have 18" done. I want it to be at least 5 foot long, if not longer.



I have a much greater appreciation of all garments hand knitted.
Have a great weekend. GO BEARS!!!!

Some call it weather-mongering. Sometimes it's fun to determine the number of different types of weather we can have in just one day. Check out Leaning Into the Wind: A Memoir of Midwestern Weaterh. It's good fun & familiar stuff.

The cables look fantastic. You rule.

So do the Bears. Will you be watching at home? I'll be at The Annex if you want to swing by.

PS: just to make this longer, my word verification word today is "yurvs." I love it.
