This is what happened at breakfast time this morning! In all fairness the weather man did predict it but I was sceptical to say the least....in June! It has been too warm and usually we don't get snow until July or August, if at all. Anyho, I got a txt at 8.15am from my big kids to say school was shut and please pick them up. Now, my snow driving skills are not good, even though I drive a 4x4, but I did manage to get home without too much drama. The emergency dental appointment I have scheduled for mid day could be a whole different kettle of fish!
Today, I am wearing a new jumper made using Vogue 8771. I originally made this pattern as a tee here. I had this lovely heavy rib wool jersey knit that I picked up from the op shop here and I had visions of a long hooded cardigan coat but since I had hand knitted a similar cardigan, I was wracking my brain for another option. I had seen a lot of these over sized jumpers on the streets. We used to call these sloppy joes, in the late 80's. It was at this point, I had the bright idea to use this pattern. I made the version with the curved hem and added cuffs instead of the sleeve extension. I also added a neck band and hemmed using my cover stitch machine. This is now my new favourite winter jumper.
