Walking in a Winter Wonderwhaaaaaaa?

This is what was waiting for me when I got home tonight. (No, that's not my yard. It's my neighbor's.) The three inches they predicted turned into over six, and it was still snowing when I got home from the knit shop a little before ten o'clock. There's nothing like the first snow of the season--it's so crisp, so white, so clean. Of course it won't last, but there's nothing like that still silence that comes with the first real snowfall of the season.

Here's a shot of a car, to give you an idea of how much snow has fallen:
I didn't use the flash so it's a little dark, but you get the idea.

This afternoon I went down to UIC to meet Lynda for lunch at the new sushi restaurant that just opened on Maxwell Street, called Kohan. They gave us these goodies in honor of their opening.

It attaches to your cell phone, and the back is a glass cleaner. Cool, huh?

The sushi lunch special was reasonable, and good. The fish was fresh and the presentation was beautiful. From what other diners were having, it looks like their noodles, tempura, and beef are also good. I'll definitely go back.

It was good to see Lynda, and I got to say hey to Larry, too (an ex co-worker who's still a good friend). I hung around for a little while and then went to the knit shop to hang out. I didn't get much knitting done--I was sewing together the baby sweater when I realized one of the sleeves was smaller than the other. It's fixable but I had to stop working on it. I decided to work on the Kid-soft cabled scarf instead. Remember that? I started it in black, wasn't happy with it, switched to raspberry sorbet, which I liked better, but the scarf just wasn't doing it for me. So I'm in the middle of undoing it (and believe me, mohair is not easy to undo).

I think it will make a lovely ribbed scarf. No cable.
