March Winter Wonderland

Lookie what I woke up to this morning!

This was the view from my front porch at day break.

My front yard at 8:00 am this morning.

Now 5" to 12" of snow to you folks living to our North is not a big deal, but to us in the Mid-Atlantic area it is quite a weather event! I have 5" to 6" while the mountains are in the teens. We have been deprived of such a snow for 6 years and everyone is savoring every snow flake!

Today is the perfect day for me to sport my new "Be Sweet" funky hat. See...I even made pics of my new knit in the snow this morning, look closely and you'll see a bit of snow on the piece. She is knit with one ball of Be Sweet - Magic Ball yarn in the color Fire Ball.

A ball of this Magic Ball yarn is such fun to knit with all the different textures, ribbons, glitter, studs and more...never a dull moment. This hat was knit in one day.

Be Sweet yarn is hand spun and dyed by women in South Africa under a job creation program that has offered opportunity in an economically depressed rural region with a 75% unemployment rate and little opportunity aside from hard labor in pineapple fields.

You lucky dog you. Sunny and I so wanted a good snow. Here in Cary, we had maybe 3 inches that was melting quickly from the ground up. Now we have lots of mud and a little snow.
