More Snow

It actually looks gorgeous out there with all the freshly fallen snow, but I will admit it is starting to get a bit much. John is out snowblowing our driveway and Mags is helping/hindering him but having a wonderful time. That dog loves the snow as much as our Cleo did! John just came in and says there is a least a foot of snow down and it is hard slogging out there!

Here is Mags playing on the deck:

And this is one of my favourite Cleo pics:

We went to the movie Vantage Point last night. I would give it a 6. The premise was good but the ending was weak and so let the whole movie down. The snow had started at that point so we had a nasty drive home.

Today is Shannon's birthday and she got the best birthday present: Leah gave her an ear to ear smile first thing this morning! What a great gift! How special is that?

I have recently discovered the joys and benefits Ravelry. Also the downside, which is spending time seeing what everyone else is doing. I decided that after seeing the Yarn Harlot make reference to it a few time, I would visit for myself. I did. It looked worthy and I decided to sign up. 6000 people were waiting to sign up and so I checked the link and discovered I had been admitted to the group in October. So I signed in and voila! Now I am trying to have everything I have knit since starting this blog, added to the Ravelry page. I can keep track through the blog of all my projects, but it could take a while to get them all posted on Ravelry! I even have two friends, a couple of my Knit Nite girls have added me, so I don't look like a total loser!

Finished: the David socks:

Started: a JoJo sweater for Leah:

Then I will finish the cabled sweater that I am more than halfway through for Reese and then, barring unforeseen projects, I will start the sweater for me that I got for Christmas!

Bye bye for now!

The socks turned out really cute. I love the little sock yarn sweaters, too. Reese's sweater is sweet, it's a gorgeous color.

I have socks on the brain even though there are other things I really want to make. I'd love to start my shawl or one of my sweaters. Maybe once I finish my current socks, and I'm making a couple of baby sweaters (my own patterns) for the store, but they usually go fast. So much to knit, so little time!

Too bad the movie didn't have a better ending. I thought it looked pretty good from the commercials. Plus I love Forest Whitaker. I'll probably wait til it's out on dvd. The last movies I saw in the theatre were Harry Potter 5 and Transformers. (Took the Oldest One to see them.) I don't get out much, unfortunately.

You should be busy with all this knitting.
