Wild Weather Wednesdays!

Snow storms here at the moment definitely have a favourite day of the week! For the last 3 weeks in a row we've had a midweek snow storm.. so in our house we've renamed this midweek day as 'Wild Weather Wednesday'. This last dumping of snow was quite fluffy which has made for some very picturesque scenes about our town.

I may not have noticed that every storm was arriving on Wednesday's but for the fact that since the beginning of January 2014 I have been teaching a beginner knitters course at the Firefly Makery here in Bridgetown on Wednesday evenings. These wild weather Wednesdays have given us some hazardous driving conditions.. so our class unfortunately has had to be re-scheduled twice in the last 3 wks.  Despite these delays everyone has been doing great with their knitting! So far they've learnt how to cast on, knit, purl, increase/decrease stitches, pick up dropped stitches, neaten edges, make button holes and cast off.

Although disappointing to have the weather interfere with our class over the last few weeks.. there is always a silver lining.. a bit more practice knitting time before starting the stitch sampler neck warmer I designed for our class project :) Hopefully next week will break the wild weather Wednesday trend though as I can't wait to see how everyone's neck warmers are turning out!
