A Dusting of Snow

Mona Lisa - completed
Cookie A's Pointelle #1
Typical 2-week exercise record
 Dust of Snow
Robert Frost
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued. 
The trees outside are dusted with powdered sugar. The promised (threatened) 2 to 4 inches of snow is only the lightest of coatings, sure to be gone by mid-day. 
Typical Saturday here on the homefront - Zig's out running errands, I'm doing laundry before going out on my own errands. 
Progress on all fronts except handspinning. Down another .2 lbs for the week. Not the threshold breaker I'd hoped for but I'll take it. Heel flap on Pointelle #1 is a welcome break from charted knitting. I don't know if I'll finish the sock by the end of the day tomorrow but I'll try. Upped some of my weights from 15 to 20 pounds.
