Whooo! Perfect knitting weather!

 

I hope you have a good stock of supplies (chocolate, wine or other alcohol), life sustaining snacks, etc!

Isn't it just the PERFECT knitting weather? Nothing says WOOL to me like 22 inches of snow on the ground. They reported that much in Central Park around 10 am today, I'm sure that amount has grown! I love it! (I just hope it's cleared by tomorrow morning, in time for the commute in!)

the only downside is that instead of showing the olympics on tv they're showing 8 hours of snowstorm reporting.

(it's still snowing in natick ... back to you pete)

Sure, it SOUNDS like ideal weather . . . unless you're the one who has to go shovel out the cars and such! (grin)

Oh how I love a blizzard viewed from the warmth and comfort of the Fiber Room.

YEs Team boston seems to have an advantage. some train at altitude, some knit during blizzards!

Crikey and there was me complaining about drizzle!
