Well, yes, apparently it can be far away!

Blizzard. White out. Can't see the house across the street kind of white out. Thunder. Thunder!!!!!

I am holed up knitting since it isn't pretty out there. Not a bad way to pass a snowy day and it makes me very thankful that I can choose when I have to go out.

Oh yes, and Red Bird Knits is SIX years old today! 6! Wow! Have to think of some way to celebrate (other than eating since I am on a diet... which is working... have lost 21 pounds... not bad.... and more to go....)

I am knitting a summer top - of course - must always be thinking ahead - out of aran weight silk - in a tweedy coffee colour. A nice and quick knit. This is about the heaviest weight yarn that I knit and it feels rather large compared to my usual lace and fingering weights. But it is going so fast, I sure see the advantages.

And in support of the Harlot (see her rant about the rude anonymous spell checking boor who sends her corrected versions of her postings):

Canadian/British spelling rocks! Blog it for the Harlot!

Congratulations, Robyn! On the 6 years and 21 lbs! Both are very impressive numbers!

I'd rather have the snowstorm than the -20 C we had in Edmonton this morning.

Congratulations on the 6 years, I work at a yarn store and I still get excited about ordering yarn from you!

I have two wintery projects to finish before I start the summery stuff. It's calling but I vowed to finish the map of the world afghan and a sweater for my boyfriend's just passed birthday first.

Congrats Robyn! Has it really been six years already? Wow, time sure does go by fast sometimes.

And congrats on the weight loss!

Congratulations, Robyn, on all counts, expanding and contracting!

Would you mind shooting me an e-mail? I'm working on a column and would love to get Red Bird Knits in there!
