With the snow we got the before Thanksgiving came the not so wonderful subzero temps....ugh! Shawn has been very thankful for buying the snow thrower this year....money well spent! If I had to guestimate it'd say we've got a good 6-8 inches of snow on the ground. Course some of that started to melt today and tomorrow it's suppose to hit almost 40F. I think the lowest we dropped during the cold snap was around -40F (yup thats a negative in front of the 40...brrrr) with the windchill. That's just way to cold for me. Thankfully the cold snap broke the other day and we're now back to more normal winter temps, which is funny since we haven't hit the official first day of winter yet. Unfortunately it looks like the cold and snow are heading back our way this weekend. Mother Nature is just teasing us right now with these almost lovely sunny days.
I finished my Rainbow and Cloud socks.
I really like how these turned out. The yarn base used for this yarn is so soft and cozy. I'm hoping she puts up more of the Ribbon Candy self striping. I'm normally not a girly colored yarn person but I love the Ribbon Candy colorway! I'd love to get a skein soon. There's more then enough yarn to make a pair of socks for myself and one of the kiddos.
Kaity's socks are very close to being done.
Other then that, I haven't done much knitting that I can show you. Mostly it's been test knits and for obvious reasons I can't post about that out on the blog. I have a few more test knits in route. Right now I'm trying to finish up some old WIPs before I start anymore new projects.
On a bright note, puppy girl will be coming home tomorrow morning. Course I'm posting this at night so most of you will probably read this in the morning. I'll post some pics out here on the blog in the next few days. We're so excited to be bringing her home! The breeder is giving her a bath tonight and she's going to bring the puppy with her to work tomorrow morning. We have an invitation to go out to their ranch this summer for a visit and take the girls fishing. We've been working on puppy proofing the house and have the front half of the house blocked off where the girls playroom, front door and stairs are.
