walk with me wed, an icy rock day

Photobucket

We are in the middle of a storm that is making it look like a glass forest outside my door.

Nature in ethereal beauty.

Better wear extra gear on your feet if you plan to try and shovel, or scrape your way anywhere. Keep the ice melt nearby. It is an icy rock day.

I don't mean this kind...

...although there are some who may think I do...

..today is a different kind of rock day...as in 'I spinne upon a rock' day.

or St. Distaff's Day!

My small offerings for the occasion....

It was a good day to sit near the fire and spin flax into linen. Happy Roc Day!!

Yes Cyndy, "you rock". The ice certainly makes everything look beautiful but it can be so treacherous.

Ah...that explains why I absolutely had to spin yesterday and never made it to the loom. Nor could I make myself pick up knitting needles. I had forgotten that yesterday was rock day.

The ice is pretty...but it wreaks such havoc. Hope your power lines are secure!

What lovely photos. I'm glad they were taken there instead of here though; that's the kind of winter storms we get - usually with downed power lines!

My Roc day post got preempted by computer stuff. I'm glad you got one in though, especially because you found a better link for it than I did!

The ice-frosting is so beautiful, but I don't miss that part about living in the east. It's so hard on the trees and plants, to say nothing of one's derriere when trying to walk upright.

Cathy said...

Lovely spinning! I had to spin too - having totally forgotten why. ;-)

Don't miss the ice storms - but oh, aren't they beautiful!

Wow, LINEN!

Beautiful pics. I love it when the trees are encased in ice like that...

Happy Roc Day!

Oh, thank you for the beauty on your blog--another b-day gift! Thanks too for your lovely message. I am behind on thanking folks, but it was a super treat to find all those comments on my blog!

There is just something magical about ice. You captured it so vibrantly too! I should celebrate Roc day a day late... I've been twitching to spin and just need to make the time I think.

Your skein is beautiful. All I did was ply lots of little leftover balls of worsted weight acrylic together. I plan to crochet a rug just to get rid of them fast as I found alot while unpacking! Also my kids were home and it just was NOT calm peaceful spinning time!

Lovely ice pictures. But then, I don't have to go out in anything like that. (70 here this afternoon.)

Sharon said...

Your photos are just beautiful! Is the flax the one you grew?
