Snow, Yeah!

 As promised, we got our winter wonderland 🙂

The cuteness!!

Despite explaining to Prithvi that 2 cm of snow doesn’t count for the school distric calling it a “snow day”, he was up really, really early this morning watching the local news to see if his wish would come true.  Nope, no snow day today!

Snow makes everything so magical and yesterday’s sunset can bear witness to that fact.

The first thing Kiki asked me this morning was if we had any carrots.  I’m thinking, “This kid wants carrots for breakfast?  Something’s off!”  Turns out she and her brother have after school plans :: building a snowman, a snowball fight and making snow angels.  I might even join in for some of the fun!!

In knitting news, being the good mom that I am (hehe!), I told Prithvi last week to pick out a pattern that he would like me to knit for him.  That took less than ten minutes on Ravelry… there’s like 7 patterns for guys and a gazillion to choose from for us gals!  He chose Ranger from the issue of BT Fall 2011 and went stash-diving in my yarn bins for yarn.  He picked Rios by Malabrigo Yarns in the colorway called “Paris Night”.  Nice choice!

There’s a bit of math involved sizing it down to fit him and I’m also using a different yarn than what the pattern calls for.  But he said that he’d really, really like this sweater in this specific yarn and so I cast on.  Let’s hope my calculations work!

    Great pattern, great colour! I’m sure that the sweater will turn out perfectly in your very capable and calculating hands. 🙂 We’ve got a lot of snow in Montreal, it finally feels like winter!

    ohhh This colour looks yummmy! Like you we only have a few inches and lots of ice. I’m eagerly awaiting a big storm to come and give us some proper snow to play in. Not to mention its been -20\’s! Waayyy to cold to stay out for long.

    What a great Mom you are! Good luck with your sweater! Prithvi too has a good eye for colors.. Enjoy the snow and your story of snowman reminded me of the snowmen from Calvin and Hobbes! 😉

    I miss this blog *runtacklehugs*! And I miss you! MWAH!
    Oooh snow. I wonder when I will see the real thing. How did the snowman turn out? I bet the kids had loads of fun making him up. Did you lend him one of your knitted scarves and hat to wear?

    Prithvi has great taste. That colour is gorgeous for a guy and Rios is so soft. Can’t wait to see his sweater all done.

    Stay warm, my friend!

    Sounds like you could start designing patterns for young males? Your pictures are gorgeous, especially with the bird.

    I love your pictures! You did a great job capturing the magic of the snow. I don’t think I can move, ever, from our house as we get so much more snow than most places. Looks like you do too. I just need one day where it snows all day so I can watch it from our front window. Sorry the kidos missed out on the snow day – I remember those early mornings well. (Why can they get up so early on those days, and not any other?)

    The sweater for your son will be awesome. I feel for the guys, you’re right, there’s just not much to choose from. He definitely has amazing taste though. He’ll be one well dressed young man.
