Yarn Along: The Ice Storm

The freezing rain started Monday afternoon and continued through most of Tuesday. Our driveway looked like an ice rink. Impossible to walk on!


Christian braved the icy roads and made the trek to work. His 1-hour commute took him 2 hours. Once he was safe at work he called and ordered me to stay home. Gladly! I started the day by trying a new recipe from a book I borrowed from the library.


Into the oven went a pumpkin, cranberry & almond baked oatmeal. The recipe called for cherries and macadamia nuts but it wasn't like I was going to run to the grocery store! My version turned out just as yummy.


I'm taking a class at my LYS on knitting short rows so I spent a good part of the day working on my "homework." Inspiration for the colors came from my project bag. Isn't it pretty?


The dogs and I finally braved the gloomy day and headed out into the field for some soggy snowshoeing. (Too dangerous trying to walk down the road.) That's our farm in the distance.


Back inside to dry out and warm up. I tried another new recipe: golden milk. It's turmeric, ginger, honey, cinnamon, pepper, coconut oil and milk. Interesting combination and not half bad once the chunks settled to the bottom. Have you tried it?


More knitting then back into the kitchen to make homemade soup and skillet apple cornbread for when Christian got home from work. How's the weather in your neck of the woods?


I'm linking up with Ginny for this week's Yarn Along.

We also got the ice this weekend, but I think not as much as you did. It was enough to cancel all activities and 'force' me to stay home:) Short rows is something I haven't tried before. I do love the colors you are using for your project!! And the baked oatmeal sounds really good!!

Sounds like you had a perfect day. This winter we've had so much ice one the roads and I hate it. I want our usually cold and snowy winters back...
Your short row project looks beautiful!

the book looks really good! I think ice storms are the worst because no salting truck in the world can undo the ice fast enough. The photos are so beautiful though.

Such wintery photos, but you are keeping cozy with the soup and the beautiful, bright knitting! I wish we had more of winter backdrop here, winter is ugly without the pretty white stuff.
