Ok, it is "snowy" as compared to many of my fellow bloggers' locales. We had a half inch last night, and it's supposed to continue to flurry today. Yes, I know this is pansy snow. The light is that gorgeous, almost crystalline, white that you get when it snows. I love this light. The light in NYC is pretty darned amazing all year round, but this is one of my favorites. Everything outside is in tones of gray and white this morning. So pretty.
I finished the Snapdragon Tam (my project page link) last night. Of course, I had a moment of sheer panic when it came to blocking, as tams are supposed to be blocked around dinner plates, and our plates are square. Heh. That could have been an interesting hat shape. I mentioned this to Bruce, and he reminded me that our good china is round. So yes, thank you, I am using our good china that Bruce inherited from his parents to block a hat. All's fair in knitting and war.

On a side (but actually related note) Bruce was saying that he wanted to get a salad spinner and my first reaction was, "ooh, I could totally use that for getting excess water out of my wet blocked knitting."
