It should be a win win situation - being snowed in. If you are cold, you just snuggle into your favourite hand knit sweater, if you are bored, you pick up one of the many projects crying out to be finished. Perfect. A knitter's paradise.
...Sort of. My fingers are sore and I've been sitting down for too long.......

Time to go out and play in the snow.

I'm currently working on Mathilde, it's very slow going. I'm still passionate about it, but need a smaller project to make me feel like I can actually finish something.
Note that I'm not going to pick up an existing project - far too logical, nope, I have to start something new. I have my eye on a couple of projects......

Comments: Loved knitting this pattern. It was straight forward. The cable pattern was easy to memorise after a couple of repeats. I changed the neckband to a roll over. It's lovely and snuggly.
