Last serious snow this Winter?
After three days of rain, with flooding around the house, we've got a lot of snow over night. We woke up to this lovely white fluff on Sunday morning. We've spent as much time outside as possible to enjoy it to the fullest. While the neighbors where clearing off their decks, I was "knee" deep in snow, chasing the dogs, or rather watch them chase each other. Maggie is really good for Denny, he runs more with her, because they take away each others twigs, and other stuff, and have to get it back = a lot of running.
But before we went outside to play in the backyard, the pups had some fun out on the deck.
Here they are in action:
I've also finished my February socks quite quickly. I've liked this sock pattern from the moment I saw it on the cover of this book, Knit Socks! by Betsy Lee McCarthy. They are called Winter Garden. They were surprisingly quick to knit. I like the lace cuff, and it had just enough color work for my taste, and of course stripes! I love stripes. They change as you get down to the foot, and to the toes. These socks never got boring.
There was a smudge on the lens, now gone. Only saw it, when processing the photos.
I especially like the cuffs, with the little lace border on top.
I liked the color combination from the book, so I was trying to find something similar in my stash. I found three different brands of commercial sock yarn, which worked well together.
March socks have already been cast on.
PS I also saw a group of seven Canadian Geese fly over our backyard in a beautiful V-shaped formation. This is definitely a sign of Spring coming.
