Snow Day Knit Along

{Yarning Along with Ginny, sharing a knit and a read.}

Yesterday's snow wasn't as deep as last week's, but it was wetter and therefore heavier. Brian fell into bed around 9 a.m. after working all night, fortunately from home since so much of this storm happened during his working hours.

I started shoveling the walk and the driveway during Ellie's nap with the baby monitor on the porch. Who needs to cross train when there is snow shoveling to do? As I was shoveling a neighbor offered to shovel my drive for $60. I could hardly respond. Perhaps the dumbfounded look on my face was answer enough?

I continued shoveling until Ellie woke up and planned to go back out and finish up during her afternoon nap. Before that though my sweet brother-in-law paid me an unexpected visit and finished the job for me in no time. Who needs neighbors like ours when you have family this awesome?

And as much as I'd like to say I spent my snow day knitting, it just didn't happen yesterday. I *have* made some progress on the little pink cardi for Ellie though- the back is finished and I'm on the first sleeve. I'm forcing myself to just dive right in to these sleeves. This girl needs another cardigan NOW and I'm determined to finish before next week's Knit Along.

I'm still reading An Everlasting Meal as I catch bits of time, pencil in hand. I'm really enjoying this one, and can't wait for summer months when I have a bit more time to spend in the kitchen.


  1. Oh Erin, I'm sorry you have such neighbors, how very sad they must be to treat others like that.
    I am determined to finish my cardigan by next week too so we can cheer each other on.
    Love that book, it's one of my top five.

  2. nice neighbor :( You will be toned and buff for the summer months, right? I love the sweet little cardigan.

  3. glad you got your workout-- such a strange thing for a neighbor to offer. I love your snowy day pictures!

  4. You go girl!! Knit that Cardi! We will be waiting for your show and tell next week! At least you know if your neighbor's drive needs shoveled out, he will think $60 or so is a fair price...right?? CRAZY!
