Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Spring Break

Or maybe that should be "Spring, broken". My son has a week off for spring break. Here is the weather forecast for the next few days:

Occasional rain changing over to snow early in the
afternoon...then diminishing. Windy. Little to no snow accumulation.
Highs in the mid 50s early. Temperatures steady or slowly falling in
the afternoon. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph increasing to northwest
20 to 30 mph in the afternoon. Gusts to 40 mph. Chance of
precipitation 80 percent.

Mostly cloudy. Brisk...colder. Lows in the upper 20s.
Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph.

Mostly cloudy early in the morning then becoming partly
sunny. A chance of sprinkles or flurries. Highs in the mid 40s.
Northwest winds 10 to 20 mph.

Tuesday night
Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 20s. Northwest
winds 10 to 15 mph.

Brrr! Wednesday it is supposed to warm up to 50 degrees F again -- by then that will feel pretty warm! Meanwhile it's nice knitting weather, at least after I add some wood to the fire.

The heels of the cotton-candy socks are almost completely turned. By later today I expect to be working on the cuffs. I like how the socks feel in this weight of yarn, and I'm already looking forward to a pair in the Magic Stripes yarn I frogged back in January! Is it possible my knitting speed has become faster?
