The Weather Outside is Frightful...

It is indeed snowing. Yesterday it was extremely cold around here. -20° F wind chill! We didn't get a white Christmas, but we certainly are getting snow now. I think I have discovered another of those Murphy's law things. If you ask for solutions to make a WIP more interesting, you will make lots more progress on it than you thought you ever would. After all, I am now past the gusset decreases and on the foot with 2 repeats + 1 row before I start the toe on the Christmas socks. It's funny. Either I get second sock syndrome and fail to complete the second sock promptly, or I start the second sock after a couple day's hiatus and get it done more quickly than the first sock. Weird.

Does anyone like the idea of a Secret Garden Shawl? (From the children's classic written by Francis Hodgson Burnett) I got the idea this weekend and drew up a bit of a diagram today. I need to find some specific lace patterns, but I think it'll work out. I actually got Homograph fairly far over the weekend.

Last night was my knitting group meeting at our library. Attendance was low, however, possibly because of the cold. I worked on the Christmas socks and showed off Rosa. I have done a little on Ruby, which is in pale pink.

I am working on getting some stuff up at my blogzine.

Let it snow!
