Dream a little dream

I fully intended to talk about my wish list today (you know, when you stumble on something that's truly magnificent while trolling through the Interwebs and you're suddenly filled with a great rush of desire and certainty that it should be yours to love and admire and whisper "My Preciousss"to in the middle of the night, but you check your bank account and the budget is a little tight so you bookmark it for future reference? Do you have one of those?), because a) I really want the "I have a hangover" post to mosey on down the page, and b) I'm not subjecting you to more brown sock pictures (hint: the second sock is cast on, I've knit about 3 inches down the leg. Exciting, innit?). I've got some pretty choice stuff on my wish list, and I figured it'd be fun to share, maybe get ideas about what's on your list.

And then it snowed last night/this morning.
A lot.
Again.

Now, those of you reading from the comfort of warmer climates might be thinking "So what? What's the big deal about a little snow, anyway?". And you'd be right. Totally right. It's not a big deal. It will go away (it WILL!). I (and every other Canadian on the Eastern sea board) know this.

Having said that, after months (and months... and months) of cold, snow, grey skies, slush, freezing rain, more snow, wind, ice, and yet more snow? Come March, when it snows, even though it looks like this:

It makes us feel like this:

What's on my wish list? SPRING, that's what.

Happy Knitting, Everyone.

I'm the same way. If I see something I want, I think, "I must have it now! Doesn't matter if I'm broke as a joke." Then, I sit there and daydream about it. I have a swift ball winder on the wish list. Ain't gonna happen anytime soon.

My "bookmarked for future purchasing" folder is the largest folder of all. LOL! Obviously, I don't really want all this stuff so much or I wouldn't bookmark it and forget it.

More rain here...then 1-3" of snow overnight...then rain/snow/freezing rain/possible volcanic eruption (ok, maybe not that last one, but just about everything else Mama Nature can throw at us) for the next three or four days. Ugh...

Lol! Loving the scream picture, I know exactly what you mean. Well, not exactly, coz we don't get that much snow, but apparently it might snow here for St. Patricks Day! Disaster!

StPatricks Day here is notorious for bad Weather! there's ALWAYS a storm!

We don't even get snow, but I would love (against all practicality) to live somewhere where you get just as much warmth as cold. Imagine...

I tend to bookmark a lot of stuff... but then try to forget it's there!

Love your analogy of the snow making us feel like images. It's so true. Is it spring yet?
