We came so close. So close to having snow last week. The temps dipped all the way into the 20s, the coldest I can ever remember being in Florida. But then we didn’t get any snow. Northern Florida got a light dusting, and so did Orlando. But all we got was rain and ice pellets. Sigh. (Did you know that there’s a Wikipedia page for Florida snow events? I found this quite amusing.)
Those of you in the North who take outfit photos outside everyday in winter seriously deserve a medal. I took these pictures as fast as I could, then hurried back inside to my warm, heated house. I definitely loved the cold weather, but in a way I’m kind of glad that it’s starting to warm up again. There’s only so many days in the 30s that a Florida girl can take.
I love how this cold snap has given me the opportunity to break out so many of my handknits. I’m so proud of this scarf, because I spun the yarn on my drop spindle. It’s super cozy and warm, and it’s long enough to wrap around my neck several times. The way I tied it here is something I’ve been trying ever since I saw this video. I think it’s my new favorite way to tie scarves.
I’m also getting to wear my tweedy beret, which is special to me because I completed it on the first day of my trip to NYC, and wore it everyday while I was there.
