25 Degrees F

And I'm ready for it with my new Kiltie Cowl.


It's knit from my knitspot 
Fall In Full Color Yarn Club December shipment.

It's a blend of
 80% Wool, 
10% Angora, 
10% Cashmere
in the Yuletime colorway
A glorious Mix of blues

Knitspot always includes such wonderful goodies.
Tucked away in this shipment were
five hand-blown glass buttons designed especially for this yarn and this exclusive Anne Hanson designed cowl.

It's almost lunchtime so off we go looking for something great for lunch.

After which we'll shop for birdseed so our neighborhood birds will stay fat and sassy.

If you're going out today be certain to
Bundle up
it could be cold out there.

hugs

red hot 's to you

  1. 25 degrees? It's hot down there! ;-) I wore my thrummed earflap hat when I went out for groceries this morning - stayed nice and toasty!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Happy new year! Your blue cowl is gorgeous. The glass buttons must have been a nice surprise.

    I keep the neighborhood birds fat, too. It gets pricey in the winter but is so worth it.

    1. I can feel that warm sun and breezes as I'm transported to your 50degree temps, Tracey.

      Sun has all but melted all the snow and the streets have remained more or less dry throughout this cold spell. No black I-C-E

      Have been thinking about your recent blog post and your gorgeous photography.

      hugs

    1. Dianna, I Love these blues. For some reason my closet does not have the blues it once held . . . . Perhaps a shopping trip is in the cards.

    1. Our cold and your cold may differ by a few degrees, Lina, considering how much further north you are. ;-)
      I'm happy here in mid-MO, just enough cold to let me know it is winter.
      Any things so I get to wear some of my hand-knits. Which, btw, I did yesterday. Four different items at one time. Sox, belero, fingerless mitts and hat ! ! ! That broke the record for me ! ! !

      Love that you took time to stop by, Lina.

      hugs and hugs for that cute baby, also

    1. Oh, Barb, when that wind blows and the temps are down, I can stand anything 'round my neck from the car to the restaurant and then back to the car then my garage.
      I've spent most of my life in one desert or another and I do get cold even if we've been here over twenty years.

      Thanks for commenting, Barb. I'm making an effort to be a better blog friend by posting more often. Hope 2013 will be a return to my normal routine.

      hugs

    1. Oh, Marty, you're too sweet for saying such nice things. Thank you.

      Btw, I must tell you. You might remember that I said I had copied your jpeg-ed copy of your recipe card for the Fruit Desert. Yep, copied and printed it. Placed it on the frig door. Bought all the ingredients and whipped up your DEEEE-LISH dish. We are lovin' it ! ! ! !

      Thanks for blogging it, gal.
