So it's Back to Real Projects

So this is the lace scarf I started some time back that was put on hold for all the Christmas projects I had to do for the family. I guess that now that the snow is going, Christmas is over, and I've completed several culinary experiments it's time to get back to work on it. As far as lace goes this pattern isn't all that complicated, it's just really time consuming because it's done on US size 2 needles. I was thinking that if I ever make it again I'll use a sport weight with US 4 or 5s, it would be more shawl like but would still work as a scarf.

Bye, Bye, White Stuff!

I am honestly done with the stuff. I have not been able to get my car out of the driveway for close to two weeks. Everyday is a struggle to get to work because the roads are so bad I was bumming rides to work, and I didn't get my shopping done until Tuesday because my car has been stuck at my house the whole time.

Today I thought I'd be able to get out because the snow is melting and for most of the driveway you can see the gravel. Unfortunately the bottom of the driveway is a DEEP slushy muddy mess and I got stuck. We tried for almost an hour to get it out and finally had to concede defeat, when we got it part of the way up the other side and then it just started digging in instead of actually moving.
