I can only think of one thing that’s more bizarre than snow before Halloween, and that’s trick or treating on a day other than Halloween. But I digress…
Why is snow in October bad? Because if it falls on the day that you planned on traveling an hour north to lovely Milton, PA to interview a Sheep To Shawl team whose members happen to be the reigning champions of the Farm Show contest for the past 3 or 4 years, it’s really, really, really disheartening when such freakish snow cancels your plans. But… while I missed my chance to interview the entire team as they practiced for the Farm Show contest (insert expletive here), I may still get the chance to hang out with the team’s weaver, Libby Beiler, sometime in the near future. A good time and a great interview will ensue… keep watching here for details.
Why is snow in October good? Because if it cancels your plans to travel to Milton, PA, you can always…
… finish your Cable Detail Sweater
… sew a button on your husband’s suit jacket
… sew an ear back onto your daughter’s stuffed animal
… re-gather your Gathered Mesh Polo (it mysteriously un-gathered recently)
… clean your house in preparation for your 2nd round of trick or treating with friends, clip coupons, pay bills, do laundry, go through email, post pictures on Facebook, and… write a new post for your blog.
A somewhat disappointing weekend, yes, but also rather productive, wouldn’t you say? Here’s hoping that your plans weren’t similarly affected… along with the electricity.
