As promised, we got our winter wonderland 🙂
Despite explaining to Prithvi that 2 cm of snow doesn’t count for the school distric calling it a “snow day”, he was up really, really early this morning watching the local news to see if his wish would come true. Nope, no snow day today!
Snow makes everything so magical and yesterday’s sunset can bear witness to that fact.
The first thing Kiki asked me this morning was if we had any carrots. I’m thinking, “This kid wants carrots for breakfast? Something’s off!” Turns out she and her brother have after school plans :: building a snowman, a snowball fight and making snow angels. I might even join in for some of the fun!!
In knitting news, being the good mom that I am (hehe!), I told Prithvi last week to pick out a pattern that he would like me to knit for him. That took less than ten minutes on Ravelry… there’s like 7 patterns for guys and a gazillion to choose from for us gals! He chose Ranger from the issue of BT Fall 2011 and went stash-diving in my yarn bins for yarn. He picked Rios by Malabrigo Yarns in the colorway called “Paris Night”. Nice choice!
There’s a bit of math involved sizing it down to fit him and I’m also using a different yarn than what the pattern calls for. But he said that he’d really, really like this sweater in this specific yarn and so I cast on. Let’s hope my calculations work!
