When we left the house at about 4, Friday morning, the weather was nice. Clear roads all the way to the hospital for SP's surgery. When we got out of the hospital to come home at about 11 am, it was a blizzard. You couldn't see because of the snow falling and blowing around. The roads were completely covered! Slow drive home, let me tell ya. That would have been bad enough, right?
Well, I put my window down to flick the ice off the wiper, and when I pushed the button to put the window back up, nothing happened. It would still go down, so down it went. We had to drive an hour in a blizzard with the passenger window all of the way down. I held my coat up to it all of the way home.
Here are some pictures of the mitten I finished while SP was in surgery. Look at that snow. It's really deep. Feet deep! Not inches! I need to move South!!
Here's a close up of my mitten. I love this yarn. It's my handdyed fisherman's wool. Warm!! It will go with the Panta that I knit for myself.
Oh, yeah, after we got home, Hubby called Cindy's hubby, and he gave him an idea on how to fix the window. Hold the button down, and slam the door. It worked. Weird!
I have eight soaps calling for felt. I hope they dry out really well before I have to gift them!
I just have to say, one more time, how much we appreciate the well wishes for SP. I love the community and friendship I've found in knitbloggers. All y'all are GREAT! **hugs to you all**
