My adventures in learning to machine knit and whatever comes to mind

Good grief!

I just looked out the window AND we have ice, snow, sleet and rain, all coming down at the same time!  No wonder I  feel like I had been beaten.  
Over the weekend, we had some lovely weather, even got up in the 70’s on Saturday, and lots of sunshine!  Sunday was warm too, but not as warm as Saturday, and no sunshine, which made it seem ever colder, but still couldn’t complain about it.
Now, we are back to winter, yesterday stayed right at freezing, or below all day, was 24 when I went to bed last night, was the same when I got up at 5:30 this morning, it just made it to 32 an hour ago…and the temps are starting to drop again, and they keep saying we are going to get a big storm!  I sure hope not!
I need sunshine, lots of it, so I can start feeling human again, and to be able to get things accomplished.
I have about 5 projects planned, and want to make a start on each one, that way I will keep going with them.   
Right now, I just want to get some things up for sale, and make room for other things I want to do.  I’ve been buying plastic totes, as able to afford them, so getting my yarn sorted out in the totes, which will make it easier to locate what I need when I want it, instead of spending days going through cardboard box after cardboard box!  
I’ve been rearranging things here, and hoping to get one of my sewing machines set up across from one of my knitting machines.  I’ve been debating as to whether I should set them up facing each other, and me sitting in the middle, or whether I should have my sewing cabinet and KM table back to back.  If facing each other, would only need one chair, with them back to back, will almost certainly have to use two chairs, which will eat up more space, and I don’t have much of that to spare.  Guess I should just get busy and start moving things and see which will work best.

Bad weather

It is just above freezing her right now and raining.  We are supposed to get from four to six inches of wet heavy snow overnight, and they are saying it will bring power lines down.  So, if you try to contact me and I do not answer, it is more than likely I have no electric (or heat!), and am offline.  Id that happens, I  will contact you as soon as I get my power and heat back.  
That will depend on how bad the storm is, and how quickly the power company can get to the damaged areas and string new line.  They do have their ducks all in a row, including out of area power company workers ready to move in and help  repair the lines and get us up and running again.
I would appreciate all prayers for Bo’s and my safety during this latest weather adventure.  Prayer for my roof to hold up under the weight of the snow, will especially be appreciated.    
I will be listing more MK books and other machine knitting items as soon as I can, so please check back to  see if I have listed something you need.
