So you guys may have heard, Chicago got a little snow?! The U of C (where I go to school!) closed for TWO DAYS. People, that is pretty much unprecedented. I mean, maybe they closed for other historic Chicago blizzards, but I'm curious to hear some statistics on that. As a result of this there hasn't been a whole lot to do besides walk around taking pictures, watching snow fall, drinking tea, knitting, and watching netflix. So basically I'm in heaven.
(That's not our car - it's just one in the neighborhood that was attractively buried!)
The cats are of course completely unaware of the fact that there's a blizzard.
In knitting news, did I tell you guys that I finished some socks?
The pattern is Minty's Anastasia socks, and I used some Claudia's hand paints that Specs sent to me a while back. Of course, it turns out I'm not a SUPER careful reader of patterns and I omitted the round of knitting that is supposed to be between eyelet rounds, so my spirals are steeper than they should be. It's no big thing. That kind of thing is why I don't really volunteer to do a whole lot of test knitting... Anyway, I'm just happy to have some newly finished socks. I have a few more FOs to post about, but I'm already starting to think about some new projects (so many forthcoming babies!) and hoping to finish up some old ones (argyle vest, anyone?). What are you guys working on lately?
