Scenes From The Trail

We started on the back porch, but quickly got too hot and had to move to a shade tree.  Seriously. 

Our "camp".

The kids made a snow sheep and stayed busy with that most of the afternoon so I was able to get six rows of knitting done.

Why, yes, it does look like a big fat possum is sitting on my knitting.  Eli.

Apparently sleeping in a heated cat condo and getting up only to walk two steps to your food bowl all winter isn't a great fitness program.  Who knew...

Probably the last snow shot for this year's Iknitarod...although we might get lucky and get a little snow next week.  I'll take it!

Would like to get four more rows added tonight, but I might have to take my eight hour layover.  The late nights are adding up and my thumb is a little sore.

You are a nut. The snow sheep shot is freakin' hilarious.

I thought it looked more like a snow cat..but then you should know a sheep from a cat! It is cute...I needed a smile tonight..Thanks Sara. We might get to 40 on Sunday..I suppose the wind will blow and be really cold...but I'll take it!
Your project is moving right along. I will send snow you way if I see any:)

A snow sheep, what a hoot. Too warm in the sun, have to think hard about that and how it would feel :)
28 this AM and 'they' say 57 by this afternoon but then the cold move back in. I am still amazed at how White that wool is. Fantastic.

Love the snow sheep ... but where's 20, in the house staying warm?

Think I'll have to find a companion for 44.

Popping by to say HI. I so enjoy all your posts and the exciting things happening! Including the snow sheep. I have to admit: I'm a Graham fan. :-)

I need orange said...

Love "the kids" and their snow sheep..... :-)

If you need some snow, I think we've got about 'leventy million tons. I'd be glad to send you some.
