    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

The snow was terrible! I did manage a bit of train knitting, only to discover that I'd forgotten to pack an extra ball of yarn! Darn!

So many things I want to knit right now as well, and these sweaters are among them (also like the KnitOne vest and the simple garter cardigan you've pictured a few posts back -- I also got impatient waiting for it and am very happy with the issue).
Have to take it easy, though, as my left shoulder/neck gets problematic quickly -- my supporting arm. Not quite like your snow-shovelling back, but still, we knitters do need our bodies to stay in shape, don't we!
