Cabin Fever Averted

No, not that Cabin Fever. The other kind. The kind you get from being forced to stay indoors because of frigid weather.

At 8 this morning, the weather channel said it was minus 24. I tried to imagine what body parts might freeze coming down the ski hill at that temperature and shivered just to think of it. Mind you, Knitsnthings son went skiing at minus 31, but he's way crazier younger than me.

But what to do with my indoor, winter day? A bit of housekeeping. A bit of baking. Then, just as I was thinking 'what next?" the phone rang.

"I have invited a friend over to knit, would you like to join us" asked Nicki. Ohhhh! I'd love to. (My Mother used to say " Never ask Brenda unless you really want her because she always says 'Yes'.") And I had the perfect little project I was anxious to start. I grabbed some leftover sock yarn, my 2.75 DPNs and off I went.

A lovely way to spend the day and no cabin fever.

I guess it just takes the right kind of motivation to get you out the door. :)

I had a good time. Sure glad both you and Linda could come over. More knitting today! :-)

I can't even imagine what temps that cold feel like! But, I definitely can imagine the need to get out. And, who can pass up a knit gathering?! :o}

I've been hearing reports this week of the cold temps in a lot of places and I'm very thankful to be in Southern California where it's been in the 80's this week.

Stay warm and happy knitting! :o}
