Snowy Sunday

DSCN3936  A light covering of snow fell overnight making the woods look all pretty. The deer hunters in the area are probably glad — they’ll be able to see tracks.

It is a very light and fluffy snow — remind me four months ago that I thought snow was “pretty”. LOL  Actually I don’t really mind snow (unless it comes in foot increments all at one time).  

DSCN3937And check out that new sturdy looking retaining wall that was finished  just in the nick of time.  Hopefully there will not be ice dams flowing over the top of it.  Between the retaining wall and the fence is about three feet of rock to provide drainage of what melts on the hill before it gets to my sidewalk.

And even better, the retaining wall is actually straight up and down and not leaning in over the sidewalk ready to collapse like the old one was.

Here’s the yarn I found in the stash to use for  Just Enough Ruffles.  It’s Three Irish Girls Wexford Merino Silk (60 silk/40 merino) so you know it’s squeezably soft and silky feeling.  The color is Globe Trekker with a great mix of blue/gray so I’ll be interested to see how it looks when I’m farther along knitting it up. DSCN3938 🙂
