Happy New Year from Maine!

We had a wonderful holiday, which included some longed-for downtime (of course that included knitting!) and visits with family and friends.  We hope you did, too.  Now it's time to turn the page and welcome in a new year.  January always seems to hold the promise of change and possibilities and I hope 2018 will be kind to us all.

And what a beginning we've had!  If you live on the eastern seaboard I don't have to tell you we just had a
humongous storm.
Here's what it looked like first thing this morning before the wind came up.

Lots of snow, about 12" here, but the temperatures are really the worst of it.  It was 10 degrees when I took these photos and the temperatures has been dropping through the day, expected to be zero here by sunset and well into negative numbers tonight.  With 30-40 mph wind gusts predicted,  I'm voting to stay indoors!

Sounds like knitting weather to me, and I just finished a new pair of mittens,(pictured on our Facebook Page).  I used some fingering weight Shepherd's wool yarn and I love knitting with it.   It's so soft, and the finished mittens are nice and warm.
