The Big Chill Refuses to Let Go!

One kind word can warm three winter months. ~ Japanese Proverb

Normally, on a Sunday I would be sharing with you some amazing hiking photos. This weekend a winter storm has hit us here in the PNW. The mountains had a high avalanche risk. Earlier it was a sleet mix before finally switching over to snow. I currently have about two inches of the white fluffy stuff as I type this. One prediction had an accumulation of up to eight inches! I haven’t seen that much snow at my house since I left the Midwest.


This gave me a chance to knit and try a new recipe. Above is a progress photo of my Frank in Paris scarf. I’m attempting to finish this as part of Feb-Blue-ary. I have five more Frank stripes left and that’s all the Frank yarn I have left. Eek! (Can you make out the snow?)

Update on other wips:

  • Blue Banana: I’m on row 32 of repeat number two.
  • Malabrigo Diamonds: Just one more row to knit in the last section and then onto the border.
  • Dewberry Dancer: Seven rows of section three are completed. My first goal is to finish section three this month. Ideally, I would like to finish this shawl, but as the stitch count grows with each row so does the time invested.

Check out my version of the Double Bacon Cheeseburger Dip below. It does not quite look the same as the recipe. I substituted ground turkey and turkey bacon and for some reason, my bread rolls didn’t cook quite right. Nonetheless, the dip portion tastes pretty yummy. We had a small portion with salads. It was rather tasty.


Look, Burt found the heated blankie!


Will I have a snow day tomorrow, or will it all melt while I sleep?
