Knitting, outdoors, Puppy

First Snow!

Today is our first real snow of the Season here in the Shenandoah Valley! (True, we had an ice storm a few weeks ago, but that just isn’t quite the same. πŸ˜‰ )

And it’s Sunny’s first snow too!

At first, she took after Joe very strongly, and was not at all impressed by snow; she just wanted to explore…

 

So we did. We went over the bridge and explored for a bit!

These are Sunny’s snowy paw prints.

Then she got excited about the snow, and caught a case of the snow-zoomies…

 

Followed by a game of snowy-hide-and seek…

 

And lastly, she dug in for a taste of snow!

 

After our early morning (it was 7 am when we went out) snowy antics, it’s now time for some coziness!

Here we are, warm and dry indoors, where I am beginning a new knitting project (details and pattern to come!) in natural colors,…

…and Sunny is getting sleepy for a good nap on her favorite blanket nearby!

I’m sure we’ll go out again later for another snowy romp, and possibly a snowy walk in the forest too!

What is making you happy, and what are you enjoying on this lovely snowy day??

Knit & Chew!

Our morning Knit & Chew (usually out on the back deck) has become something of a ritual for Sunny and I. In fact, Sunny can get quite bossy about it if she thinks I’m taking too long making the coffee… πŸ˜‚β˜•οΈ

Knit & Chew: The unreasonably early morning version (indoors because it’s so early there’s not enough light outside yet for knitting)…

Would you believe me if I told you that getting up so early was originally Sunny’s idea? Sometimes I think she pretends she needs to go out just because she misses me! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’— Apparently, sleeping next to our bed isn’t close enough! πŸ˜‚πŸ’—

Wait. What? How did this get in here?!

It’s the “I’m so cute when I’m napping that Mommy can’t help herself” nap time photo bomb… πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚

Knit & Chew: The totally reasonable morning version…

And some sneak peeks at swatches for a new design I’m working on! More details forthcoming! πŸ˜„

The needles are Knitters Pride Royales, (the 10″ / 25 cm single points)…

And the yarn is Knit Picks Palette!

What’s on your needles today? What’s making you happy right now? We’d love to hear all about it! πŸ˜„

~Happy Knitting!
