I love walking around outside in the snow. Everything is so quiet and peaceful. I donned my boots, jacket, wool hat and mittens grabbed the tools to help clean off the cars. I like to do that in the snow. Then I came back inside and grabbed the camera and placed Mini D, JoJo and Baa in a basket and off we went, for a walk. Here are some of my pictures from this morning.
Mini D, JoJo and Baa wanted you to see that they love the snow too. These planters are out at the mailbox. You can see the house in the background. The little yellow thing, with snow bubbling out of it, is the rain gauge.
Socks! I have turned the dreaded heel on my socks! I ended up doing a short row heel. Very easy and quick, on socks that are being knit from the toe up on one circular needle. I have even gone beyond the heel about an 1 1/2 inches. I am surprised, though, at the long length of the orangey color in this sock yarn. Who would've ever guessed that I would have orange for the entire foot? The pink section is short, in comparison. I am kind of disappointed in that. The skein looked more pink than orange. All in all, I like the socks. The yarn is a cotton/wool blend and feels very soft.
