I Know I'm Crazy

but I really wanted to be home in Seattle today to see this



We don't get snow every year and if we do, it doesn't usually amount to much.  Without anywhere important to go, I love being warm and dry and looking out as our big fir trees are covered with white.

On the other hand, it's not too bad where I am now.



News!  I finished the first knitted object of 2012.  DH managed to wear holes through his favorite bed socks, so I searched the stash for some heavy yarn and started another pair.  I just make a standard top down sock with a short cuff.  I found two skeins of Mission Falls 1824 wool, which I think is discontinued.  Each skein is only 85 yards, so I wasn't sure if I'd have enough.  Sure enough, I ran out right where I needed to start the toe, so I found some leftover Wollmeise Twin in the colorway Zenzi.  I held it doubled and made bright toes.



Even though there's no snow here, we can still pretend that it's winter.
