Another Twofer

I had a whole post ready to go but lost it when I went to post. Grrrr...

Try try again, right? Where was I? Oh yeah, I had an outfit photo yesterday but didn't get to post it.

Flower Basket scarf, MM
Chocolate Hepburn cardi, MM
Navy pointy tunic, MM (self-drafted, cotton knit)
Brown texture-blocked leggings, SB
Brown/navy/orange self-striping socks, MM (pre-Ravelry)
Black Birkies

Dressed for: Helping a friend finish her handwoven baby blanket. Sorry no photo but it turned out very nice!

It turned cold yesterday and actually snowed:

So pretty! It melted a little but now it's crispy-frozen. We went for a short walk to the nearest grocery for milk and decided that it's much too slippery out there! So many people didn't shovel their walk (probably waiting for it to melt as usual) and now it's really hard to walk on the side streets. Good thing we don't need to go anywhere for awhile because it's promising to stay cold and snow more on Thursday. Wow! Actual winter.

Today's outfit:

Icelandic Lace shawl, MM
Falklands Flare pullover, MM
Same navy tunic, leggings and socks as yesterday
Charcoal sleeveless tunic, MM (self-drafted, cotton/lycra knit)
Brown Blundstone boots
Not shown: fleece tights and warm undershirt

Dressed for: My colder-than-usual house

See? Even my bamboo is cold:

But it was sunny! Such a nice change from 2 months of rain.

Love your scarf and mismatched wrist-warmers from a previous blog. You've got the right idea wearing lots of layers in cold houses. Ditto over here. Too much single-pane glass.
Yes, the sun was so welcome after all that darkness. And Vancouver always looks so beautiful in the snow.

You look so artsy/cool/unique in your outfits. Inspiring! I just wear the same jeans and pullover until they need to go into the wash, so lazy.

Thanks for the encouragement, my dears! And Heather, I haven't worn jeans since I was in my 20's. I find them so uncomfortable probably because I'm not the right shape. Stretchy knits and elastic waists are much more my style.
