    Steven's Clockwork scarf is visiting us and whew, it survived the ice storm last night!

    It's knit in Bugga, which is very nice. YUM.

      Mr Hello Yarn is one stylin' dude! Love the iced-up pine tree in the background.

      I agree.

      The light in this shot is perfection. Beautiful portrait!

      Thank you!!

      I almost like the snow because it makes the light so lovely, even inside the house.

      Excellent hat! Wow the ice on that tree is freaking me out!

      Last night and today were a little scary. Trees fell, hunks of ice fell, then it got warm around noon and the snow all came off the roof at once. I'm just glad the house is still standing!

      Scary! Ice is a menace. We had a couple huge trees taken down last fall & I am glad now because it turned out one was very diseased & it definitely would've come down on the house eventually.

      So so lovely!

      Ugh. When the snow and ice comes off the roof in one giant WHOOOMP it's totally scary. I forget, do you have a metal roof? Our combo of metal roof + second story chimney (warming everything at the top) makes for serious drama.

      We're in the midst of a major snow storm too -- I think 11" is over kill!
      The scarf is fabo and I LUV that hat!!!!!!

      Stay warm & dry!!

      Thanks, everyone. That hat is his super duper favorite and it's made from scraps! Good scraps, but still.

      Ours is slate, but the barn has a metal roof and they behave the same way- slippery! We don't have anything heating the roof- it's so well insulated- and the snow stays on a long time, then WHOMP. Everyone has slate roofs here and you can hear the snow sliding off all the houses.

      We already had 18 or so inches before this 10"! It just keeps snowing and snowing.

      Oh, that almost makes me faint!! So much snow!! How does wee little Pippa do in all that? Does she jump in the middle of it or does she stand in the doorway looking out saying, " no way jose"??

      The first morning, when we went to bed without a flake in the sky and woke up to about 10 inches, she ran out onto the porch and froze. I had to show her how she could jump off the porch and under a bush where there wasn't so much snow. She is fine barging through it up to a point, but we have far too much now.

      Mark does shovel paths for her. She's in one in this photo. We had sleet the other night and then some thawing and melting and refreezing yesterday, so she can walk on top of the snow, now, finally.

      I just went and looked at Miss Pippa peeking out of that mountain of snow!!! OMG, she's a brave little girl. Sam is totally intimidated by all the snow, but Louis just plows through it, even though it's taller than him. ;-)

      The hat, the scarf, amazeball, but why is no one talking about the sweater?! I seriously love it. What are those creatures in the front?
