I finally finished the Patons Stretch Socks! I started them in September, but had to keep putting them aside in order to work on gift projects for the holidays and birthdays. This yarn was a little odd to work with at first because it is so stretchy (I heartily recommend nickle-plated needles rather than bamboo or wood, because this yarn is a bit 'sticky') but I like it quite a lot.
Bertie Wooster seems to be hoping they're edible socks.
We got SNOW last night. Those of you in areas of the world where snow is commonplace are probably going "Meh." But around here, a genunie blanketing snowfall is rather rare. It's lovely to look at, but I'm glad I don't have to drive in it. The schools and most businesses are closed, or at least on delayed opening schedules. Inclement weather tends to freak out folks in these parts. At the mere mention of snow, everyone goes racing off to the grocery to buy up eggs, bread and milk. (I've lived here all my life, and I still don't understand what that's about. Does everyone think they'll have to exist on French toast for days on end?) I had to do some shopping yesterday (dog food: one of life's necessities), and the grocery store looked like it had been raided by a post-toke-and-toga-party fraternity.
Anyway, here's a shot of the woods behind the house, and an across-the-pasture shot of the woods beside the house.
Edit: I don't know what the heck is wrong with the font size here. I've tried to fix it so it's uniform, but it doesn't seem to be working. Grrr.
