Snow! We got over 8 inches overnight. Good day to stay at home and knit. Still working on the hat, as I haven't gotten to work on it much lately. Hubby said it was slow going with the snow blower due to that much snow. Guess I'll creep out later to go to the post office. They didn't clear the roads early as schools were closed today and no school buses needed to drive it.

So, I'll knit today.

I've been working on my hat these past few days. Still not very far on that cabled band. Think I have 4 cables done out of 18 or something. Way to go with just the band. Been too busy doing other things I guess.

We had snow and freezing rain yesterday. No fun. We stayed home from church. It stopped later and then hubby cleared the driveway. Drive is almost clear in places today. Temps in the 20's F.

I did finish reading a book I had borrowed from a friend, this weekend. Maybe that's why I didn't get many more cables done.

So, I've been knitting.

I have taken out the sock I started and waiting till I feel up to it to go get a second circular to try the 2 socks at a time. I have been sick this past week, and haven't up to making the 25 mile trip to the knitting store. Guess I could look online, we'll see.

I did knit the practice square for the hat I want to make. That came out ok, so I started the band of cabling that goes around the hat. Haven't gotten very far as my needles are long, and can't use them in my favorite knitting chair. I will do it though. I want to wear the hat.

We got about 2 inches of snow yesterday evening. My hubby ran the snow blower this morning. I made it down it later and it wasn't too bad. The roads weren't the greatest though as schools were closed so they didn't clear the back roads in a hurry. It's still quite cold here in PA. It's about 2 degrees F. now at 7:45 PM.

So, I've been knitting.

Have been thinking about knitting. Deciding I want to unravel what I've knitted on my pullover sweater and am in the midst of finding a cardigan to make instead. I am also going to take my sock and unravel that out and now have directions to make 2 socks at a time on 2 circulars. Need to buy another circular to match one I have.

I've been sick this past week. Not fun, bad cold. Still coughing and blowing the nose, so guess although I'm feeling a bit better I'm still sick.

It's been very cold here in the Poconos. Temps in the minus numbers lately. Quite raw out. Good time to be sick and stuck inside.

Got together stuff to make a hat I found on the Internet. Raided my stash and found a pretty blue worsted weight yarn which will make a nice hat. It has a band of cabling around the edge which will be pretty and fun to work. Plan to start on it tonight.

So, I've been ripping more than knitting, but planning to start knitting again this evening.
