Lake Effect snow, knit cowls and Bella


This weekend I experienced what is called in North West New York as "lake effect" snow. Mom and I decided to rent an SUV and drive to see my sister and niece. If anything it was a true adventure, which I love! It was not bad going there but I was amazed at how on the way to dinner the roads had a small coating and by the time we came back from dinner I could not see where the curb or the lines on the road were. About 2 hours and it was near whiteout conditions! That being said by saturday am, roads were clear. So fittingly I worked on my newest Incognito knit cowl while mom was driving. My pics of my sweet sister (the model) did not come out as well as planned (duh, now I know to take a pic out in the snow not standing under the carport!) but you can see it snowing in the backround. Saturday night we finally got to watch Twilight together. We tried to catch it when she came home in December, but it was too busy. So I waited to see it with her. Awesome! I loved it. I can't wait for the sequel. My only problem was with Esmee. Come ON the chick from Gray's anatomy was what they came up with for Esmee?!? I always pictured her as someone really beautiful and sophisticated. That being said all the other actors were perfect for their roles, and my first thought on Dr. Cullen was that he would have been perfect to play Lestat instead of that Tom guy they cast. But all in all, a great flick. Rach agreed. Driving home was more snow, bad, we saw 5 accidents within 20 minutes. But thankfully, nothing too bad and we actually made it home in record time. Don't forget to leave a comment for the Cowl giveaway here.

I love your knitting! WOW! I grew up in Toronto and know lake effect snow well. My love for it as a child (great packing snow!) is only rivaled by my misery of it now (great packing snow *sob*). LOL
