Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Looking for the contest? Click here.

We are getting snow today, and lots of it. It started spitting flurries two hours ago, and now everything is covered. The forecast is for 8" or more. Sucks that Hubs is on the road, so I have to try and clear all the snow myself. Needless to say that I'll only get my little driveway cleared and the steps. I'm not touching the big driveway. The snowblower is in the basement, and it hasn't run for a couple of winters anyways. I tried to start it last winter, and I couldn't get it to work. (Probably has rotten gas.) And I'd never touch his ATV with the plow cuz if I did something to it I'd never hear the end of it. So today will be a day of knitting, knitting, and more knitting. (Hubs would say it's no different than any other day.) My "to do" list today includes finishing the second clog to the red and black pair and also finish Hubs's second clog. (Won't felt his til he's home next weekend.) That should be it for felted clogs for a bit. I also have to right-handed Fetchings to knit. If I get that done I'll be happy.

Someone asked what kind of dogs Jewel and Maggie are. I wish I had the money to do DNA tests to see what exactly they have in them. Jewel was a stray, but the vets say she's Golden Retriever and Nova Scotia Duck Toller mixed. (I've had a lot of people as me if she's a Toller. She really looks it except she's not orange enough.) Maggie was the result of an unwanted pregnancy, so I was told, and she is Golden Retriever and husky mix. Plus I'm sure they both have other stuff in there as well!

We have the yarn inventory completed at the store. I finished the Briggs & Little yesterday. There is a lot of odd dye lot skeins that are all marked down 25%. There is a lot of baby yarn as well as a basket of Briggs & Little of various breeds. (Atlantic, Regal, Heritage, Tuffy)

Happy knitting!

PS The felted clog pattern I use is the Fiber Trends Felted Clogs AC-33 by Bev Galeskas.

We got about a foot of snow last night. Looks like you are getting it today. I am glad it was not on a school day so that we didn't miss anymore school! Good luck shoveling out. It is fluffy here so it went easy. I was lucky enough to have hubby home to snowblow while I cleanned off all the cars and walkways etc.

Sorry I didn't get there on the weekend to check out the baby yarns. I wasn't feeling that great. Anyhow, I'll hopefully get in sometime this week to have a peek.
