I finished Sandy’s socks!  They are Hermione’s Everyday socks.  Fun to knit, too.

I brought them to her at work yesterday and she immediately put them on and they stayed on the rest of the day.  I think she liked them.

And I started my sweater, too.

This shows the yarn colors pretty much spot on.  I am about half-way through the first sleeve already, and I am really loving how this Mountain Colors yarn is knitting up.  This is going to be the Sweatshirt Sweater without the front pocket, which is a free pattern on Ravelry.

We received about 5-6″ of snow (depending on how far north you were), but it was all light and powdery, which made cleaning off the car pretty easy.  Unfortunately, the wind is really supposed to pick up tonight, so all that fluffy stuff will get blown about and create large drifts.  My niece, Kim, had never seen 5″ of snow before.  I can’t wait to see her reaction when we get a foot or more dumped on us at one time.

Stay warm!
