We woke up this morning with some new snow on the ground.
Not a deep snow, but it's all white and pretty again.
I swept some away from the sliding door and found it to be light and fluffy. I threw out a bit of corn for the birds and squirrels, for they were already there, waiting.
I was looking out the kitchen window above the sink and my eye was drawn to the windowsill. I have a collection of little collectibles there and see them always, but these pieces especially caught my attention this morning. I bought the Dutch S&P shakers on a visit to Nashville, Indiana (more commonly referred to as "Brown County") in a little German shop. The Jadeite salt shaker is the only piece of Jadeite that I now own. I think I may have collected a few pieces at one time but I must have sold them in my antique shop booth down in Kentucky back when I rented it.
For those who have written me to ask for directions for my knitted scarf, here you are. I am not using any scarf pattern, just knitting the double moss stitch.
Cast on your desired number of stitches, choosing a number divisible by 4.
(For my scarf I casted on 36 stitches and my scarf is approximately 10 inches wide, using size 10.5 needles.)
Rows 1 and 2: Knit 2, Purl 2, and repeat to the end of the row
Rows 3 and 4: Purl 2, Knit 2, and repeat to the end of the row
Continue repeating Rows 1 through 4 until your scarf reaches the desired length, ending your scarf with Row 4, and bind off in pattern.
This is an easy-peasey scarf. I should be using my long needles instead of the 10" size, but here's my reason I am not: I knit in my recliner and it's a very small size chair. When I use the 14" needles, I am not as comfortable as the needles keep bumping into the chair arms, etc. So, I manage by using the 10" and just squish the rows back a bit to keep the stitches from slipping off as I knit. No worries.
Happy knitting, or whatever fills your day.
Thank you for taking the time to visit me.
