In like a lion?

I took this picture just a few minutes ago. The sun is shining and the temperature is 14 degrees F. It looks like March is coming in like a lamb but it's not. By 5 p.m. tonight we're supposed to get snow, sleet, and freezing rain. So if you don't hear anything from me, you know we lost power at some point. I'm hoping that doesn't happen but it's a possibility.

Amy S - this snow picture is for you!

I think I may have turned into a sock addict! Remember the sock I started Saturday night? Here is where I am on it now.

The heel is turned and the gussets are done! Now I'm doing the foot and will hopefully have it done by Saturday. Then I can start the next one. The last pair of socks that I made in this weight yarn took me 2 years to finish. But I like wearing them so much that I really want to get these done. And I think they will fit me fine.

I am also working on ponchettes for my niece's twin girls. The twins are 6 months old now but I'm making the 18 month size. Knowing how I am with setting projects down and knowing that I have to make 2 of them, I figured the bigger size was a good bet. I'll post pictures and details at another time.

I'm very excited! We made camping reservations at a campground in New Hampshire for August. I did a map quest search and found out that the campground is around 11 miles from Patternworks! Since we camp with Sue and her family, we are both looking forward to visiting Patternworks. I may have to start saving up now!!

And with that news, it's time for me to get ready for work. At least it's almost the weekend!

Thanks for the snow photo! Keep warm and I hope your power stays on. Your socks are gorgeous! I know you will get them both done and love wearing them. Do so in good health!

We passed near Patternworks on our journeys last summer, but didn't stop. I hope you have a fabulous time there.
