I woke this first day of the year with the low grumble of snowblowers interspersed with the rhythmic whump of cars rocking themselves out of snow pits. (Sort of like tar pits but cold).
The back yard was beautiful.
but to counteract all the white, I found some color.
(this is a slipped stitch swatch I made from Barbara Walker's 2nd treasury of knitting patterns. The pattern is called Maze.) Now I feel all balanced :-}
