Wishing for Winter

This has been the view from my deck for the last several days.

That is our pond and it has been frozen, until today. We had a very warm day today. Not Winterish at all!

Now I realize there are a lot of folks out there that don't particularly like Winter, but I'm not one of them. I LOVE Winter, and I Love the shorter days. I know this puts me in a very small minority, but I just can't help that. It's not because of Skiing or any type of icy sports, and I don't care to have to be in the cold any more than necessary. But I do enjoy coming in out of the cold and feeling cozy and warm in my home. Fixing a hot meal for Hubby and I, curling up on the sofa for knitting and a little tv (or my new favorite, BBC radio), or reading a good book by lamplight while the dryer is working. Ahhhh, gotta love that white noise.

For me Winter is a time of rest, when I don't feel like there's a million things left undone at the end of the day.

Soon I will be leaving Winter and going back to Chang'an where I will be back in warm, slightly tropical temperatures. There may be a few cool days but my cold weather will be gone and when I return here again Spring will have sprung.

I would really enjoy it if I could see one snow, however small or large before I have to leave. So, just for me guys and gals, please think SNOW!!!

On Thursday, I started my February Lady Sweater and it is proving to be a fun knit. It's moving along rather quickly and hopefully will be done in time to wear when I leave.

This is the view from my 19th floor balcony in Chang'an.

Wow, what a view! I bet you hate to leave that but time away is temporary!
What yarn are you using for your Feb. Lady Sweater?
