Tab, don 't go skating on the streets in your car, please. Even buying yarn couldn't be worth that! It sounds like your snow turning to a skating rink is about the same as what happens here. Nasty, nasty, nasty.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
