Bad News:  First measurable snow of the year came last night. Good News:  I wasn’t scheduled to work today so I get to stay inside with Simon and Oscar and look at the pretty.  Here are some pictures out the back door for you. <a href=”http://Snow Picture #3“><a href=”http://Snow Picture #1“><a href=”http://Snow Picture #2“>Bad News: The Red Jeep is still out of commission from being stolen. Actually it works just fine except the windshield wipers won’t work. On a snowy day, you pretty much need windshield wipers.Good News: Being stranded at home gives me lots and lots of knitting/blogging time.Here is a photo of how far I am on my Dad’s first sock.<a href=”http://Dad's Christmas Socks“>I also have some yarn pron for you. I have true to my word not bought any yarn lately. But I recently received some sock club yarns. They are exceptionally beautiful.<a href=”http://Zen String Serendipity Morroco“>This is my Zen String from October. The colorway is Morocco.<a href=”http://Zen String Serendipity Poseidon“>This is my Zen String for November. The colorway is Poseidon. I’m not getting a great color from my camera on this one. It is a really lovely blueish color, with almost some grey in it. Next up is my Booty Club yarn for November, the colorway is Solstice.<a href=”http://Yarn Pirate BFL Solstice“>Now that I look at it that photo’s not very good either. Beautiful purples and blues. Oscar wanted a sniff.<a href=”http://Oscar Sniffing the Booty“>”>Be super careful in the snow everyone!!

I love the Morroco – it’s really pretty!

I’m quite jealous that you get to stay inside with the cats today. I would much rather enjoy the pretty snow from the comfort of my own home!

I’m such a snow chicken. This is awesome!

Me too Melissa! But I don’t consider snow bad news – February gray skies, yes, but not the snow. I love it.

Did you lay your Dad’s sock in the snow to take the pic? Colors are lovely. I miss helping you make your yarn selections. My next project for you is a pair of holstein inspired socks for the GISF next year.

Actually, it was the carpet. What color are Holsteins? Are they the ones with the black and white sploches of color? I can totally already picture it in my head, I’m getting excited!!!!

Did I ever tell you that I wore my Big Sky Mind socks in South Carolina and they were a huge hit!

I am happy I found your site on stumbleupon. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my wife were just preparing to do some research about this. I am very happy to see such reliable info being shared for free out there.
