So I guess spring really is on the way.

This shawl is getting a bind off today.
431 stitches takes a very long time
especially when it's a stretchy bind off with the extra wrap on each stitch.
Ends will probably get sewn in tomorrow.
I miscalculated the gauge but refuse to tear it out.
I'm hoping that blocking will help a little with the size,
but I figured that a large scarf was better than an unfinished shawl.

The latest puzzle got finished last Friday but I left it out until today
so GB#3 could see it.
I then started to put it back in the box,
and it was at this point that I remembered I hadn't taken a picture yet.
So the partial puzzle picture will have to do.

I took a few pictures to show how much snow we got yesterday,
but then Fireball and I shoveled the driveway
and the sun came out and the sky was this beautiful blue.
You know I couldn't pass up the chance to document it.
I hope you enjoy the wintery view.

We are expecting two waves of snow today
with an expected total of up to a foot of snow,
and the second one has just begun.
Because the temperature is bitterly cold,
the wiper blades have iced up in the less than two miles we've been on the road.
Luckily, our house is just past that small hill ahead.
It's time to get home and stay home.

I got to sit in this chair today.
I made a phone call yesterday with a question about some trouble I was having
trying to sign up online for an appointment at a new vaccine location
that is just opening up.
I got my answer but then was asked if Fireball and I wanted to participate
in a "soft opening" of the location.
They would be taking appointments for only ten people
the day before the actual appointments start tomorrow.
This was to help them go through the process and get any kinks out.
We jumped at the chance.
There was no line, the process went fairly quickly and then I got to sit in the chair.
The second dose appointment is even on the calendar.

This little tunic is off in the mail today for GB#5.
It is designed to grow with the little one,
beginning as a dress and changing into a top as she grows.
The neck and sleeves can be adjusted as she needs.
Hopefully it will arrive before Valentine's Day.
Pattern: Pierrot Tunic by made by Rae

I'm still working on my second sock.
Tonight it is while I watch the big game.
These are toe-up socks.
Why does it feel like the leg takes forever?
And after I finish this leg, if you remember,
I have to tear out the original leg on sock number one
and reknit it to match sock number two.

I'm working on a few freshening up projects in the kitchen.
One involves getting a bit more light in the one small window
while still having the capability of blocking the direct sun
when sunset coincides with dinner making.
To do this I've replaced the Roman shade,
which covered about five inches of the window when pulled all the way up,
with some side panels.
I've also patched a bit of wall above the window that can't be seen
but was a source of annoyance.
Once I paint it, I will finish accessorizing that shelf.

When I entered the Vaccine Waiting Room
my wait to make an appointment was just under 45 minutes.
I worked my way down to a 15 minute wait when suddenly
the next update gave me a shocking number.
According to my calculations,
my wait would now be just over 82 hours or just under 3 1/2 days.
Luckily after a few more minutes counting down,
it returned to a reasonable time of 26 minutes
and I was able to get an appointment for vaccination in late March.
