More Snow

I guess it's starting. We are to get more snow tonight. Most of what we got the other day has melted. Tonight our area is only supposed to get 10-15cm on snow (4-6") and gusting wind. The rest of Nova Scotia can get up to double what we get (Cape Breton even more) and stronger winds. Looks like another snow day tomorrow! I hope so in a way. Darren is very fussy for only macaroni and cheese loaf sandwiches days that he doesn't get a hot lunch, and I didn't get any today.

I finished my socks last night and am wearing them as I type. This picture doesn't show the color very well. I used Bernat Sox yarn in Hippi Hot and this pattern. It's only acrylic, so I find them comfortable but getting little "fuzzies" quickly. There was a lady in the store one time shortly after we took the Ball 'n Skein over, and she said that was the only thing she didn't like about it. I already had the yarn. The colors are nice, and it's inexpensive, but I know it won't hold up like Opal, Lorna's Laces, Socka, etc. Oh, well.

I started the size 12 month tri-colored sweater for the store. I only have like four rows of 2x2 rib done so far. Think I will hold off on another pair of socks til next week so I can get my February socks done for the Sock-A-Month KAL. Also there's the Knitting Olympics to contend with next month. I also brought home a bunch of Briggs & Little Atlantic in some new colors that we got in to make buttonhole bags.

Should really go do my dishes. The water has probably gotten cold.

Happy knitting!

Love those socks! They are great! I have noticed that about acrylic yarns too...the fuzzies! I usually make slipper socks out of that yarn, they are comfortable! I can't wait to see all of your completed projects!
