Snow Day!

It started snowing just about the time i got up this morning and soon was coming down really hard. We've already had about 6 or 7 inches of new snow now and looks like we will make it to the 12-14" forecast. It's windy and blowing and cold -- good day to knit and listen to books.

A couple of weeks ago I received an order from Yubina.com -- and it was yellow cashmere and silk, though I thought I had ordered a red. Seems  that I clicked on the wrong box. And though yellow is not my color, I figure I will find a use for it. So I ordered what looked like a nice heathery blue -- 4 800 yd skeins of their cashmere and silk. Well that came today. And it came wound on 2 small cones and is more slate than blue and finer than the yellow. I can't really even tell if it is the same yarn. I am hoping that it will fluff a bit with washing. And I guess it will look good when I find the right pattern. But I must say I am underwhelmed by these yarns. The price is good and the yarn feels fine but it is not at all the same quality as what I get from Colourmart and the colors shown on the site are pretty far off what I see when I look at the actual yarn, whereas I have been happy with the Colourmart colors.

Last night my husband and I made a sublime meal -- Duck Pot Pie which I found here. It takes a bit of prep work, but is so worth the effort. this is one we will repeat and use as a dish when we have company.
