Gorgeous. Beautiful. Wish you were here.

peaking through

Snowboarder and I are up at Lake Tahoe for the weekend. Our annual holiday trip. We drove up yesterday in the snow, and awoke this morning to this!

cashmere toasty

On the drive up I finished my first knit of 2009. A pair of Toasty. Finally, after six pairs for gifts, a pair for me. In 100% cashmere. My new yarn love, The Plucky Knitter Aran Cashmere in the colorway Moat, and it took just one skein (with just a few modifications....see here).

Plucky cashmere heaven

And they are mighty Toasty!

gorgeous

Wishing everyone a nice and cozy weekend!

Stay Toasty!

Today was such a nice day in the Sierras, wasn't it? Made up for yesterday's rain. We're too far south and too low to have gotten snow this time.

We're heading home tomorrow, so hope you have a great time in Tahoe!

Sigh! You have no idea how much I want to be in the snow right now.

Enjoy!

LOVE the colour of your toasties, and they must feel so cushy on. Very nice :0)

That's the right way to enjoy the snow...you going to it! :)

How lucky you were to get some Plucky Knitter yarn! That is a job in itself! Beautiful Toasties in a lovely color!!

Happy weekend!! :)

OMG gorgeous (both the scenery and the mitts)! Shane and I talked about going to Tahoe for our honeymoon, but ended up going to Vegas instead. Now I'm thinking a trip to Tahoe is in order for our 5-year anniversary in a couple of years.

What a nice tradition. It's looks fantastic there. And of course the mitts looks great too.

Jodi said...

Simply gorgeous! I wish I were there, too. All Chicago's snow has melted away. Those mitts look so cozy and warm.
