Let’s Recap

So back on November 6 we got our first snow and I went a bit batty, as is proper and appropriate for the first snow.  Then it got oddly warm.  Freakishly warm.  Downright balmy.  Just look at the background in the pictures between then and now and note the bright green grass and total lack of snow.  Thankfully, that seems to have been remedied.  It’s been snowing on and off for the last three days, and it shows no sign of stopping.

Alas the snow does complicate getting pictures a bit.  The railing of my back porch is rather covered in the stuff (as are my socks at the moment), and the back yard has more or less disappeared.  You’ll just have to take my word for it that it still exists.

I’ve been a bit of a slug on the knitting front (real life is so totally getting in the way of knitting and I don’t much appreciate it).  I have at least made a bit of progress toward finishing up the second purple sock.  It’s looking fairly crumpled at the moment, but it will smooth out to match its mate once it has a bit of a block.  With luck, it should be done later this week.  The pattern is written and I’ll be putting out a call for testers in the next day or two.
