Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Day 4 of the 2010 East Coast Snowdown. A girl could get used to this...... It's actually been a beautiful snow (from the living room window, of course). Yes, we've been without power for 7 - 8 hour stretches and I'm sad that we lost this tree in the backyard.

The good news is that my knitting is thriving. Thank goodness for stash (for all you non-believers - hah!) and thank goodness I can knit by touch.....well only with stockinette. I'm alternating projects - finishing the Every Way Wrap for my daughter when the power is on & working these Top Down socks when the power's out. I'm using the Miss Babs Yummy Superwash yarn. This is only my second time knitting socks & I'm still trying to get the whole gusset-thing downpat before I more on to a more challenging pattern. Love the colorway.

Right before the storm, my favorite man - the postman - dropped off these goodies. He must have known the storm was coming strong & I'd need lots of backup (lol). Actually there were some great year-end online sales at Webs, Knit Picks & Little Knits that I couldn't resist.

I must be entering my "green" period. Happy Knitting!
