Although it’s not officially winter until December 21, one could make a case that it’s already arrived with much of the country stuck in the deep-freeze. Here in Colorado a blanket of frosty white snow covers the mountains and plains, with icy roads causing challenges for drivers. We had to drive in it early yesterday morning when it was 10 below zero on the way to a scheduled medical appointment. Thankfully the procedure went smoothly with good results and when we came back outside the sun was shining brightly, creating the look of sparkling diamonds in the snow.
One look at the landscape here and all you see is white, white, white. That got me thinking about white knit and crochet projects. Here are some I’ve designed and created:

The snow is beautiful to look at but combined with sub-freezing temperatures it makes life difficult for everyone. One of our cats (the mostly-white one) likes to go outside to do his business but can’t in this below-freezing weather so he’s very grumpy about having to use the indoor litter boxes:
Flocks of birds have been at the feeders eating all the seed we put out. Some of them look as grumpy about the cold and snow as our cat does:
I’m not grumpy about the weather as long as I get to stay inside to knit, crochet and design. At least it looks very Christmas-y around here!

Grab some soft white yarn, knitting needles and/or crochet hooks, and enjoy winter’s white if you can …
