a toddler sweater

A toddler sweater in progress. This will barely fit Dorothy now, but it's intended for Clementine in the future. It will be a raglan sleeve, with rolled cuffs. Pretty much the simplest sweater one can make. Yarn is Knitpicks Stroll in Peapod and Eggplant, maybe? No pattern, just my own recipe. I have made countless sweaters like this.

Snow day

Snow, then ice, then snow, with more snow and ice expected Thursday. It's wintry around here! But today, after the snow stopped, it was a perfect day to go outside. No wind, temps in the high 20s (-2 C) and overcast with no sun to glare.

Bede smacks Faith with  a snowball!


Look out, Bede!

Wind up...

Piff! Take that, little brother!

Trixie and Gilbert.

Hi Gilbert! Don't slip, Gloria!

Abby and Faith, in a snowball-war truce.

Dorothy and I watched from the other side of the window, thanks.

What a great day.
