White Christmas!

According to the news, we have only had 10 white christmases here since 1891.
It would be fine with me if we didn't have another for a VERY long time.

Everyone here has a serious case of cabin fever, including the doggies.

But, there has been lots of knitting,

And, since it's Christmas after all, some un-wrapping of presents.

I like her with the jingles, we can tell where she is!

Make it STOP!!!!!

Now we've added another 6" or so of snow and added a freezing rain chaser.
The snow is about a foot deep and there's a thick, hard crust of ice on top. I've lived here pretty much all of my life and never seen snow this deep. That's why I like to live here, the weather is USUALLY pretty mild.
I haven't been out of the house in nearly a week (with the exception of a white knuckle trip to the grocery store) and just cancelled everything for tomorrow too.
This is supposed to hang around until Christmas day. :(

At least I've gotten in some good knitting
Man socks....
STR Obsidian medium wt - 2 skeins, but there's enough left for some nice wrist warmers for me.

Cleopatra - STR sock club (I'm a bit behind, but catching up fast)

Enough Already!

A serious case of shack fever is setting in.
I just finished mopping the kitchen floor, 'nuf said.

Even the doggies are getting restles.....

Snow Day!

We're stuck at home with about a foot of snow for our second day.
One is fun, two is BORING, three is going to be impossible.
Although it's beautiful, it kind of sucks.

The good news is there's a lot of christmas knitting happening.
The bad news is, not much else.
Good thing we have our "3 days, 3 ways" all figured out.
3 days of food, 3 days of water, 3 days of yarn.
At least I finished that 3 days of advanced pilates before we started

It's enough to turn you into a drinker, really.....

some christmas present knitting

I've been VERY busy. Trying to finish presents for my friends and clients and a couple for me too.

The blue scarf is "punch and judy" I really like it, but I hope I can steam out the curling edges.

I don't remember the name of the green one, but it was a free internet pattern and I made it with stash yarn, so that makes it even better. They're both presents for folks, so I'm trying really hard to keep the cat off of them while they dry.

The socks are the current rockin sock club offering. I made it this far in one day!

I'm loving the pattern and the yarn, the only bad thing is that they go so fast! They're really a fun knit.

I can hardly wait to join again next year and see what they have in store.

Check out my new mascot, Ida. Ida sheep was made by some nuns over at the priory. They needle felt and knit to raise funds and they make some really fun stuff.

She's been boxer tested and approved!
