Remember when this was cold? Now, we're looking forward to this weekend, when it may actually get into the 20s. Last night, a friend mentioned how an acquaintance had joked that "-8 is the new 20." I wish I had thought of that, because it's SO true. 20 would be practically balmy!
In case you're wondering, the normal highs here for this time of year is in the low- to mid-30s low 40s!
I'm a medical librarian in Iowa City (transplanted from San Antonio) but this blog is about knitting (mostly), not working. I'm divorced with two feline "children." I grew up in central Illinois and went to the University of Illinois (the original one, in Champaign-Urbana). I got my master's at the University of Texas at Austin.
