The afghan my friend is blowin in the wind.....





the afghan is blowin in the wind. The temp is a balmy 24 degrees. The sun made a very brief appearance that allowed me to take the close-up of the afgan.

DId I tell you that my sister who now lives in MN, had never seen Fargo? Well, I made her watch it. Then she made me watch Ice Age. It was minus 40 with the windchill when we watched the movies. What other chilly movies should I watch while I knit this cozy warm Heirloom afghan? Any ideas?

The afghan is a take off of the garden party shawl. I put a big spin on it. THe yarn is colorway MINESHAFT , Lorna's Laces silk/wool blend. I have a few skeins left to go. It is really a throw, not a full afghan, but there is no song about a throw in the wind is there?

It's not a movie, but I read 'Into Thin Air' by Jon Krakauer in the heat of summer and froze the whole time. ;)

DR Zhivago===the scene where they go to the summer house in the winter and EVERYTHING in the house has ice on it. Lovely lovely work of art, your afghan is

Absolutely beautiful.

The only movie I can think of is Little Women. Not all of it is winter time, but I think most of it is.

That's a great color!

You should rent Everest the IMAX movie made by David Breshears. Great movie. AND very chilly!

Kathy your afghan is gorgeous. Love the colors and the pattern. That would be a nice warm knit to work on when it is so cold outside. Good choice.

Your afghan is beautiful. The colors are mellow and gorgeous.

Have you seen the new Irish musical "Once?" Its not snowing in the movie, but they are all wrapped up in warm woolies, so the actors always look like they are chilly.
