As cold as it looks, and then some. Postcard from a few days ago, on the edge of a (frozen) lake signposted "Seventh Lake", somewhere near the middle of the #Adirondacks. We had recently passed #OldForge, which in the summer is probably rather busy. At the start of April it is decidedly not, but the general store had its lights on, and a "YARN-KNITTING" sign, so I played my "it's the fates" card and there was a pit-stop. The store had a really good selection, including this wool from a couple of states over. Just enough for a baby's waistcoat, and with multicoloured buttons to match. Later that day, we reached the Ben & Jerry's factory, which was thronged with cold-oblivious teenagers and herbally-scented young men queuing with ice-cream menus in hand: for it was the annual Free Cone Day, which made it all feel even more Willy Wonka-y.
Today, we are in Quebec, and gearing up for a potter round the snowdrifty streets. Wool makes a lot of sense here. #freeconeday #imaginefreeskeinday
