Two and a half weeks!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE...OMG, it is March 11th today and I meant to publish this the 18th of February.....I am sorry I must have never hit publish....I am so sorry!  Here was my February update:

Hey has been 2 1/2 weeks since I last wrote and it feels like a lifetime.  I am in Texas and we are in the midst of what can only be called a cold storm of epic proportions...I have not had power for days (till late yesterday) so I have not even watched the news to see if this storm has a name...someone mentioned Uli....but it has been SOOOOOO COLD!

First....I finished my author friend's wrap

Next, I finished the lace I was starting for a friend (she ended up doing a different pattern).

I got yarn to make Paige new dishtowels and pot holders (she is changing the colors in her kitchen, I made these exact ones in 2017 in grey).

I podcasted with Elizabeth and Melissa and we are doing a cardigan KAL....her his mine

and Melissa's daughter, Audrey, got an amazing picture of Antonio hanging out in a tree

Alessandro got a haircut at Paige's barber shop....and the whole family went

I got yarn from Knit Picks for two sweaters, Mae and Paper Planes.

here is the start of my Mae

I got my February Blanket yarn

I also got a lot of work done on my Granito sweater

Valentine's Day came and I got a nice treat from a guy I have been talking to!

That is when all Hell broke loose.....the night after Valentine's Day it started to first it was all snow angels and Happy Valentine's Day (and Paige wearing all her hand knit items:

Jax was not sure what to think, but he liked it....

Yvette sent me pics of the girls playing

Brandon updated his instagram

Then the power outages power equals super cold...I am wearing 2 shirts, my Easy One Bulky in Berroco Vintage, and my wallaby over it....with a hat a knit and gloves, and 2 pairs of pants on.....inside my house.

I had no firewood, but the roads were ice.....then....once the roads cleared enough, I went to my parent's house for firewood (my sister had my parents at her house since my parents had no electricity either)

But my happiness at soon having heat was short lived because my pipes busted.

I got the water turned off quickly, then the next day my BIL came to cap the break, and then later I got a plumber here to fix it.  He still has some work to do, but for now it is working.....I finally got power last night and it has stayed constant enough to do this blog post.....I also called Paige and told her to come over (she still had no power)....I made a make shift bed (mattress on floor) in the yarn room....and now that Paige has gone home, my dogs think this bed is for keep me company while I work....LOL!

Stay warm my is a fire from me to you!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
