I did get my snow day Friday, so that was the start of an awesome weekend! It gave me time to start on a project I am in love with: Winter Rose socks.
It is the first pattern in the Helen Stewart's Secret Sock Society. And isn't that yarn gorgeous? I won it in one of Andi's giveaways. The dyer is Great Lakes Tweed, and I know this isn't the last skein of this yarn I'll have on my needles. It is a joy to work with.
I went for a joyous walk Friday afternoon. I don't mind the cold at all when there is fresh white snow and a cerulean blue sky. And I've begun doing 20 minutes of yoga every couple of days, thanks to this DVD, which I've owned for years before finally putting it to use.
I'm slowly making my way through Liz Steel's Watercolour Class, and it is both fun and transformative. One of my favorite exercises so far was painting my wardrobe.
And later today I'll be doing the only form of exercise I truly love: cross country skiing!
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend, too.
