Have you seen Anne's (of knitspot) new project? I am SO in love!! As a former northerner, I believe that when it gets cold it should snow. But in TX, it just gets cold and windy. Granted not nearly as cold as it gets up north, or not nearly as long. I'm not complaining (much). Believe me, I'll be doing my happy dance when spring arrives at the end of February, while the rest of you are still slogging through slush.
But, every once in a while, a girl wants some snow. So, if Mother Nature isn't going to give me snow, why not knit it? This just might have to be my first lace/shawl project :)
