Spring Envy: Yesterday’s snowmageddon was an assault to my spring longings. The fact that I had to stitch snow into my spring sampler was painful. However, this mornings trek outside with Sherman had me rethinking “painful” as the poor robins in the photo so aptly showed me what painful really is. They are all puffed up and are perhaps even more pissed off with these dregs of winter than I am!
Knitting Dissatisfaction: The new knitty is out. I had looked with interest at Arashi, but the directions seem unclear to me and a bit too ambiguous, even for an adventurous knitter. And, the other 12 patterns? Well, nothing there screamed “knit me” at all.
Driving Drawing: Thank you to the Bridgeville Police Department for this brilliant tweet yesterday. A picture is worth a thousand words… or crashes as the case was yesterday! But, note to the artist… next time make sure the map is of Pittsburgh rather than Washington DC!
These are my things for today, random as they are! Want to see more? Head on over to Carole’s!
That tweet is hilarious! And we dodged the storm thank God. Like most…I’m done with winter!
I had to drive yesterday and it was white knuckles for me all the way home. I would have shaken my fist at the guys who think that they can drive 65 because they have big SUVs and too much testosterone, but I was afraid to take both hands off the wheel!
thankful our cold right now is just cold and not snow … and that I my plans for spring knitting are set!
I saw that tweet several times but never looked at it closely enough to see that the map wasn’t of Pittsburgh! I’m guessing they “borrowed” it from someone else.
Yesterday was just miserable. I had to be out in it because I had a doctor’s appointment, and between that walking and slipping outside my office building, I was wet and cold for most of the day. The sun today seems to be doing a good job of melting, though, so I hope a lot of the snow is gone by the time I head home.
Very funny tweet! But enough with winter, bring on SPRING!
I keep saying this . . . and one day it will be true . . . spring snows melt fast.
Random looks just like life.
This too shall pass,
and it will randomly different 🙂
Your police department has a sense of humor!
Re: Knitty. I agree with you… a simple schematic would go a long way with a pattern like Arashi… “rather unusual trapezoid shape.” What does that mean? Is it a trapezoid? Is that an unusual shape?? Anyway, overall, I think they need to up their game for submissions — photography alone! I looked at those patterns and thought “same/old,” and I get that icky “homemade” vibe instead of “handmade.” They used to be SO relevant (THE relevant one). I realize the game has changed immensely…
wasn’t the snow crazy? We had about four – five inches and then poof it all melted yesterday! I am thrilled it disappeared so quickly.
The snowfall was lovely…and the snow, short-lived – at least in my neck of the woods – thankfully!
