The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

I was done with errands before 1 pm today. Now, the Lucky Penny family is holed up in HQ, with a pot of split pea soup simmering on the stove. I've been preparing since the weekend for the storm that's swirling about outside. Piccolo was groomed, and I was able to get her in early, and I did the laundry. I did have enough clean things to last a few more days, but by the time I would really need laundry done, taking it out to the laundromat in 20+ inches snow would have been a much harder slog. I think the Man is going to go a little stir crazy, and who knows if he will do any work on cleaning that room now that he's in captivity. But, I have lots of knitting and sewing to do. This giant lace scarf is from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts, appropriately called Big Lace Scarf. I used two skeins of Magnum, rather than the one that was called for, to make it nice and long. I left enough yarn to make another micromus for Piccolo.
