Winter Wonderland

FebSunrise
Click this one to make it bigger! Mr SABLE took this this morning on his way out to warm up the car before going to work. I cropped and Photoshopped a bit.

Our high today will be in single digits F. The ice that covered the trees on Sunday isn't going away any time soon. Now, at about 9:30 a.m. the bright sun shining on the ice-covered birch by our driveway is beautiful, like a totally schmaltzy Christmas card by Hallmark.

Yesterday I finished the first sleeve and the neck on the Sloane Pullover. I hope to finish the second sleeve by the weekend. Then I'll have to cast about for a local model to wear it for some pictures before I send it off to Maine. I can just imagine the personal ad now:
Wanted: woman to model sweater, bust about 36-38", wears at least C cup. No pay.

I bet I have a friend around town it should fit fairly well. If I have to use a flat-chested woman, I can always stuff the front with balls of yarn, right?

heh. wonder who would answer that ad?

If I were a wee bit closer I would do it. 36ish here, and I'd wear my big bra ;)

Gorgeous photo. And thanks for the visual- stuffing someone else's bra with yarn, LOL!

Ha ha, if you can get some woman to stuff herself with yarn balls you'll have to pay her! Hee hee!

It's funny, Dante made the lowest circle of hell icy and cold, but to me that's my idea of heaven!

Hey, I'd do it if those were alpaca balls. Or cashmere.

We were lucky closer to the lake--the ice had a chance to melt off the trees before the temperature dropped, so minimal ice damage around here. You think spring's ever going to come?

Betcha one of the ladies at Sat knitting would model it! And I volunteer to bite the bullet and take it to MAINE for you!
