Winter is here!

Puppy is so cute with the snow deeper than he is tall.It feels like it was just yesterday when I last blogged. I can't believe it was more than a fortnight ago. Time flies when you have a new puppy!!!!! Well, we now have an amazing amount of snow for our area. I can't compare to the lake effect snow that some places get, but this was still significant. About mid afternoon on Friday it all started and didn't stop till this evening. I havent' measured nor gotten an official statement, but if you look at the back deck it is at LEAST 18 inches deep!

This poor tree, drooping in the weight of the snow.
And this tree is completely covered.

I did however finish one pair of socks this month.
Pattern used:Cleopatras Stockings from the Blue moon Rockin' Sock Club
Yarn:Cherry Tree Hill supersock in Wild Cherry
Notes:I could have gone further on the cuff, I had more yarn, but they were getting too long for me. Love this pattern, it is a lot of fun. The first time I made them I followed the pattern completely, this time I opted to do a basic Toe CO.
