It's hard to believe, but one year ago today we got Jewel. She was a long time coming with cancelled flights due to snowstorms or just booting her cuz she's a dog. We waited over three weeks for our little puff of fluff. She was still babyish looking back then. So this is her unofficial birthday, even though she's really about 1-1/2.

Before we got her, when she was being fostered.

After we got her.

More recently with Maggie.

The kids got a storm day today. It started snowing last night around suppertime but changed to ice pellets, freezing rain, then rain in the evening. Everything is a sheet of ice. Look at all the ice in the graveyard across the road. I almost broke my neck going to the compost bin.

Got tonight and two days left to make the second sock of this pair for Pa in order to catch the deadline for January socks for the SAM7 KAL. They are the socks-from-you-know-where. I started them awhile back but had to set them aside for awhile. Seems like I knit hours on them but don't get anywhere. Never had a sock like it. I don't like how the leg pooled at all. The foot is fine, just how I wanted the whole sock to look. Heaven knows what the second one will look like. I'm sure he won't care, but it'll tick me off.
My boys are always happy when they get to disassemble things. They've got an old radio off of one of the boats from where their grandfather works. It doesn't work any more, so they get to play. The Oldest One has taken apart VCRs, Playstations, radios, computer parts.... (all non-working, of course). Hopefully he'll learn how to put things back together so they'll work!

Happy knitting!

She's still a puppy! So young, both are beautiful though.
I hate it when yarn pools. Rarely do I find it attractive. My daughter in Halifax, had half a now day. She had classes in the afternoon. We've got gentle snowfall the whole day.
