Um, like what's with all the snow?
And what's with people taking their bikes out in February?
Last night we had snowstorm number three (?) of the season (the Yarn Harlot has documented it much better than I). I heard there was as much as 40 cm that fell overnight. 40cm! That's like... four gauge swatches!

Cozy chairs, yummy desserts, new and exotic yarn. *sigh* It's a wonder anyone left, what with the weather and all.
In good form, I brought my camera, and in true form, failed to take any pictures whatsoever. I assure you it was well documented, just not by me. At the risk of breaching some kind of Knitty confidentiality agreement, I won't tell you which yarns were "tasted". But I will show you my little souvenirs:
Looks like Blythe will be getting some fancy new sweaters!
