Hailish times . . .

Wild weather yesterday; witness the hail, accompanied by lots of lightening and thunder. All this though is rather tame compared to what Atlanta experienced.



Considering all the hail around here, this photo below may seem rather h**lish; I'm knitting on size 0 double points, making an I-want-to-tear-my-hair-out pair of fingerless mitts. I'm only up to repeat 3 of 8 spiraling leaf patterns to reach the thumb gusset of the right hand. I'm supposed to complete both right AND left by next Saturday afternoon for the completion of this class. If I didn't have those green specs just barely showing in the upper right, I wouldn't be able to see this at all . . .

I posted up some brilliant golfball hail once... it's on my http://gledwoodvideo.blogspot.com blog if you google that and hailstones you will fine it... literally windscreencracking youtube stuff...

that path looks beautiful though... like posh people's drives...you know with the white specks

i was thinking of knitting some fingerless gloves for someone... thought of another gift idea instead and this makes me glad.

It's hailing here at the moment... I can hear it gently tapping on the window.
I've just finished a pair of baby bootees, pattern courtesy of Lettuce... very complicated, nearly drove me batty... but now I'm going to start another pair! I must be a glutton for punishment.
The spaceship house is cool, I'll have to show The Space Cadet, he may be interested.

Appears in the photograph, the hail and the rain that falls.
Very good the rain, makes bad the hail.
Splendid post!

arkh! All that talk of weather: I can hear hailstones banging an internal mental roof of my own

Fingerless gloves sound good. Are they a bugger to knit? I speak as one who has just had to restart a scarf for the 5th time after dropping a stitch (but in my defence the wool is that nasty sparkly dangly stuff, looks good but is impossible to knit, in my amateur opinion!)
