Knitting In The Clouds
I went through a snowstorm yesterday. A snowstorm! Already! It was snowing pretty hard as I came across Snoqualmie Pass in WA. It changed back to rain as I dropped back down off the mountain. It's too early for this crap.

I'm stuck for the weekend in a truckstop east of Seattle as I was delayed by a combination of weather and a bad truck wreck that happened right in front of me so I couldn't deliver yesterday as planned.

I have a nice view of the cloud wrapped mountains right out my windshield. Very pretty scenery. And I have my knitting to work on while stuck here.

It's cold, rainy, damp weather here so staying inside and knitting is a perfect thing to be doing here. I have my generator running with the heat on low, just enough to knock off the chill.

I should be doing some housekeeping and clean the truck up a bit, and I probably will before the weekend is out, but for now I think I'll just knit.

Yeah, Snoqualmie's like that sometimes... At least it's a pretty place to be stuck in -- once the clouds lift.

Thanks folks. I've been stuck in worse places. At least the scenery is good (what isn't covered in clouds).

I'm currently working on a black scarf, Silver's Palindrome pattern, and will probably do a matching hat for it.

I need to get some yarn to make some nice heavy wool socks for this Winter.

Hmmm, are you near Issaquah, or further west? I think there should be stores close by....

I'm in the North Bend area. Not really much around here except the truckstop. They don't allow trailer dropping here so I can't take my tractor anywhere and am limited to walking distance.

~sigh~ I love that kind of weather, maybe because we never get it here. It's perfect for sitting by the fire and knitting or reading... I don't recommend you have a fire in your truck though.

Probably wouldn't be the best of ideas.

I'm a warm weather person and not overly fond of chilly, damp weather at all.
