I live on Long Island where I have lived my whole life with the exception of the first four years. When I was a kid, we had big snowstorms. In one, I remember my father having to go to the garage to get the shovel so that he could dig his way out of the house. However, if we had one or two snowstorms a winter, that was A LOT. Because LI is an island, (and the water temperature cools more slowly than the land), winters are usually pretty tame, as winter weather goes. In 2012, we even had a weird winter where the temperature rarely dipped below 45*F. The cherry trees were blooming by the middle of March. However, the last two years have been God-awful. Last year we had record snowfall, and this year, like much of the rest of the country, temperatures were in the single-digits and dipped below 0*F a number of times.
What does this have to do with knitting?…
The answer is accessories. I’ve been designing and releasing more than usual and will have another out towards the end of the week. I have another bunch sketched out on paper, but can’t knit them fast enough. And whenever I knit one, it is “swiped” by someone in my house because it’s so darn cold.
Keep warm. And if you’re interested in more accessories, check out these:
