January Mid-Month KAL and snow!

I love this KAL! I think it's one of the prettiest yet. The picture isn't the greatest, but you get the idea. The variegated did so well too. We got a little snow this weekend! It hasn't snowed in 4 years. It didn't snow much, and we were hoping for 2-4 inches, but it was still fun. It didn't snow enough for sledding or snowmen, although my brothers did manage one or two snowballs, much to my chagrin. :) The three of us went back in the woods behind our house. It's all hills, so it isn't easy, but it's worth it. We went as far as the swamp, a place we haven't gone in three or four years! There was just enough snow to make it beautiful. Here's a picture of our front yard yesterday.Kirby was so cute! The last time it snowed, he was a little puppy, so he didn't really know what to think. The snow was coming down in huge flakes when we let him out, and he looked surprised at first. He kind of pawed at it, sniffed it, then jumped because he wasn't expecting the cold. He started running around, and at one point, he just kind of sat and looked at it. Of course, he had to eat some too.

Your cloth looks great! I like the lacy look, too. The yarn you used is very pretty.

Kirby is too cute! Our rat terrier didn't like the 1/4 inch of snow we got at all.
