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."

Sun (No Knitting)

Although I couldn't participate, give the 14-ish temperatures and lack of a subway, I am amused by No Pants 2k8, and I'm grateful to doulicia for providing the link.

That's my roof, the one I had completely clear of ice and snow Sunday when it was 46 degrees F. and raining. Ha. That lasted about twelve hours.

We didn't get a lot of snow, but it was very cold and windy yesterday. My husband said in one spot, there was flood water on the road he takes to work, and a two or three-inch drop from white ice, to wet pavement, and back up to white ice again.

Apparently the same school authorities who cancelled school a couple of weeks ago when it was 44 degrees and raining have toughened up a bit in the last couple of snowy weeks, and today we only had a two-hour morning delay.

If the sun stays out, by nightfall we might even be seeing pavement on the roads again.

There's no knitting photo today because I didn't manage to turn all four sock heels in one night. I'm much more of a math geek (would it surprise you now to know that I took calculus in high school?) than a speed knitter.

Speaking of geekiness and science stuff, if we're extremely lucky, maybe the sky will stay clear tonight, and I'll be able to see the lunar eclipse.

I did not take calculus in high school because the teacher had a knack of making it confusing, not only in his class but forever after. Because I have two older siblings, I knew this already and requested to get switched into, oh, basic math I think it was, because I'd already taken everything else. We did SAT prep for half the year. I often cut and went to breakfast.

When I took calculus in college, I was much better off (and far less confused) than my high school classmates who had first been exposed to it in high school!

I am so sad to miss the lunar eclipse (not visible in Australia) although we did have one last year. I really feel I am due all of them! The really nice thing about living in the country is you can really see the sky and that means eclipses, meteors and comets!

Thank you for your nice comment in my blog! Hey-I found stuff about doule knitting in your blog, this I have to read for sure! Here we have just a lot of snow, not too cold. -5 to -10 degrees Celcius is not so bad, but I am sure glad I have knitted mittens and hats this winter.
