Ladies and gentlemen, tomorrow you can fry eggs on sidewalks, heat up soup in the ocean and get help from wandering maniacs, if you choose. 

My friend Jeanne told me about a Twilight  Zone episode where the earth is shaken from its orbit and we can't escape from endless winter.  Rod Serling was so visionary.  So if that happens, I'm going to tell you what's on the needles - mine and Cory's so that you have something to do since you won't be able to go outside.  Oh, wait, we can't go outside now.

Yellow Wall Cardigan by Judy O'brien
I'm knitting the Yellow Wall Cardigan in Ryley by Hikoo.

Hitchiker by Martina Behm
I'm knitting this is in a handyed fingering weight that we will be carrying in the next few months.  I now understand why more than 13,000 people have knit this.  I will make another one for sure.

Dovetail Shawl by Judy Marples
Cory is knitting this in Kauni Effektyarn.  It appears to be addictive, you can come see it for yourselves, it's beautiful and she hasn't put it down in a week.

If she tires of the Dovetail she'll go back to this.  Alba by Martin Storey is in the new book from Rowan called The Pure Wool Worsted Collection.

A practical joke perpetrated by Mother Nature?  Perhaps.  A practical joke with the trappings of a nightmare of terror and desperation played out in the terminal winter of the Twilight Zone.
