March Winds
The wind is so strong that my chairs on the porch are all over the place. It is 45 degrees outside but feels like 45 below with the wind.

We've got some strong wind here in the UK too. It's not good as our gate was damaged in the last stormy week we had And it looks like our insurance won't cover it either

I'm in Rhode Island and the wind is so bad, it almost took the door off the hinges and when I stupidly went outside to shake some rugs the stuff in the rugs flew back on me!

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
