Prairie Rose Lace Shawl

Prarie Rose Lace Shawl in Jojoland Melody, hot off the needles

In a while, I will put on some boots
and step out like someone walking in water,   
and the dog will porpoise through the drifts,   
and I will shake a laden branch
sending a cold shower down on us both.

But for now I am a willing prisoner in this house,   
a sympathizer with the anarchic cause of snow.   
I will make a pot of tea
and listen to the plastic radio on the counter,   
as glad as anyone to hear the news

-from "Snow Day" by Billy Collins
I blocked the edge straight, rather than spiky as called for on the pattern. because I like it better.
