Wha? Snnnooooww??!

On Thursday, we had nearly 60 degree weather here in Connecticut.  Today, right now as a matter of fact, looking out my kitchen window, there's two inches of fresh white snow on the ground!!!  It's beautiful, but too early in the season!

I'll be off teaching crochet today, so the commute should be interesting.  Hopefully the roads will be clear, or at least sanded.

I did manage to crochet up some more scarves for the challenge yesterday, and I'm glad that Robin corrected the count I had posted for her.   I'm hoping that we'll be able to meet the challenge by tomorrow.   Here's the breakdown:

30 Scarves in 30 Days: (days remaining: 1)
....From Cris of Danbury (all knitted):       1 scarf and 5 hats
....As posted by Robin Anderson:                 4 preemie caps for the U. Of MD NICU (Jamie)
                                                               2 purple scarfs for the YWCA Shelter in my church (Caron)
                                                               2 adult purple hats (to go with the scarfs) for the YWCA Shelter in my church
...From Lori of Greenwich:                       1 scarf
...From Ang W (via email):                        1 scarf went to homeless shelter in St. Stephens
... and from new crocheter, Stephanie, of New Fairfield:  1 scarf

and I now have 20 scarves done (plus a hat) ....
that brings us to 28 of the 30 Scarves in 30 days Challenge!!
This means we need just TWO more scarves by tomorrow!  I know that together, we can do it!  And I know, in looking at the fresh snow outside, that they will surely help in keeping those in need a bit warmer this upcoming winter season!  :)

Got pics of the snow????  I was looking at the national doppler radar this morning and saw quite a few "white" spots on it and wondered if those people were TRULY getting snow!  I guess you are confirmation of that!  No snow here yet on the shore of Lake Erie.  We like it that way!  Hugs, Sheila

I hate to correct you again, but it's a total of_12_ preemie caps for the NICU at University of MD, a total of 5 hats &  4 scarfs for the YWCA shelter for a total of 21 crocheted. I think I misunderstood the challenge, I thought _we_ were supposed to crochet / knit 30 items in 30 days. I don't think I can make that goal. I will be prepping for a big family dinner here for the next week or so...
