Good Morning Sunshine…

20121208-184931.jpg</a

It's been a crazy whirlwind here, the hurricane blew through the end of October, we didn't suffer any damage. I was sure we'd wake up and and be in the midst of mass destruction. Lots of rain and wind and a few branches strewn about…

Monday morning was windy and rainy, we only worked until noon. The news stations were telling everyone to stay home. The roads were getting treacherous…

Sunday was a windy day, I think everyone was having a hard time believing a major hurricane was hearing towards us…at the end of October! The trees were in full autumn splendor, it was beautiful.

The storm, hurricane Sandy, made its turn into land further north. New Jersey & New York took the brunt of the storm. =(.

KNITTING
I’ve been working on several knitting projects.
First up are these adorable fingerless mitts.

“Susie Rogers Reading Mitts” I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light in a cream color.

This pattern was an easy knit. I love the picot edge! That little detail gives the mitts very feminine look.
next on the knitting agenda

I fell in love with this very versatile knit project!
I have the perfect yarn for it too…

Check out Three Irish Girls web site http://www.threeirishgirls.com/product.php?productid=354&cat=1&page=1
I love cowls, this pattern is so versatile! You can wear it half dozen different ways!
now…lets see what else I have on the knitting needles

20121208-194150.jpg
I was at Walmart and of course I found my way over to the craft department…Caron Simply Soft yarn was a steal at $3.00 a skein. I got several in various colors.

Caron Simply Soft holds the cable pattern beautifully! This red is perfect for a Christmas cabled scarf!

20121208-194602.jpg
These 2 scarves are gifts! I know my cousins will be very happy!
now for some Noro

20121208-194833.jpg
Noro yarns have the most amazing color combos, it is hard for me to choose a few skeins, I want them all!

I’m knitting an enterlac scarf for myself. I have loved that knit pattern ever since the very first time I saw it knit up…of course it was knit with Noro yarn! Mmm, luv it!!
This is an enterlac cowl knit with sublime cashmere yarn, very soft and very warm!

I had several skeins in complimentary colors.

TEA, I like it too

My good friend, Diana has introduced me to the world of tea.
http://www.teavivre.com/ has authentic Chinese teas. My favorite is black tea. I’m acquiring a taste for green teas. I’m no too crazy for white teas yet…I have had a few that were very good…

Twinnings Irish Breakfast tea is my all time favorite….

About those Doomsday Preppers
Have you seen the program called “Doomsday Preppers”? It on the history channel, http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/doomsday-preppers/
I feel as though I live in a bubble…a safe little bubble that protects me from all the craziness…but now my curiosity is peaked…what exactly is a doomsday prepper? What are these people preparing for? Is there something going on that I don’t know about? YES, there is…I must say I am more than a little bit worried. When I am out and about…happily purchasing my daily Starbucks latte or home sitting on my comfy couch knitting away or just day dreaming…watching the birds busily fluttering around my myriad of feeders…could there be something sinister lurking…

before I start freaking myself out, I need to educated myself what can I do to survive and protect myself should “something” catastrophic happen, hurricane,terrorist attacks,solar storm or some other natural disaster.
So much to think about….
