Snow and Socks

Am I the only Michigan blogger who didn't post a snow picture yesterday?

That's only because when I sat down to do it yesterday evening, our ISP (Internet Service Provider) was out so I couldn't get online.

This is our road yesterday (Sunday) in mid-afternoon. Residents without four wheel drive had to stay home.

It did get plowed overnight, resulting in a pile of snow at the end of the driveway.

This morning was shovel time. Great exercise and it's free.

Perfect knitting weather.

Daughter-in-law Anne's birthday is January 10. I've found, over the years, that I need to treat her birthday in with Christmas or it gets forgotten in the post-Christmas/New Years lull. So, I'm knitting on her requested birthday socks - something with dark blue.

Yarn: Stahl Fortissima Colori, Socka Color. 75% superwash wool, 25% polymid.

Color: 07

Needles: Options 2.5mm

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch
