Santa (among many others)
had hoped for Christmas in Montreal
to be white.
It was not.
and the Knitting Companion wait
for snow ....
and then, just after Christmas day,
Montreal did have some snow.
Now, a week into the new year,
and sadly the snow is gone again.
This is not Normal for Montreal-in Winter.
We're all Waiting. January is supposed
to be full of Snow.
Now, i wonder if i can find something
to console me, something nice ....
perhaps a new meringue ?

it's a dark grey day here in Montreal.
the Knitting Companion is not fond
of the wet weather.
Instead, he likes to curl up and go
to sleep. Somewhere soft is best.
No big updates to report on the Treasure box.
it's still partly filled with chocolates.

The Knitting Companion
and i have been
doing some very relaxing knitting
over the past week.
No patterns, no fancy stitches.
Lilac coloured mohair. It has more
of a "bloom" than a "halo".
However, i seem to have
much less of the lovely mohair
than i had imagined.
Is there a trip to a yarn store in the
Perhaps. But all shops
are closed today.
So i've just cast on something else.
Something mohair. A soft laceweight yarn.
Lovely lime green, hand dyed, with little swooshes
of a deeper green every now and again.

There are fancy food
preparations on the go
today chez Knitting Companion.
You will be glad to know that
the K-C has been having his own
festive meals this week. No one is to
be left out of course.
We received a lovely box of chocolates
last week. I am pleased to say
that once the box is empty
i will own a
very lovely "treasure box".
Now the only job
is to eat all the chocolates.
