I have been told that if the sun does not shine, it it not a "real day".The sun is shining today and that is REAL...so what a blessing for Grand Marais! We have not had too sun much in a long time. It still is very cold so you still need a hat even though it looks deceiving from inside the house. You may not be able to see colors of the yarn in this photo, but, the colors are beautiful. The color of the yarn is called Harlequin.
