Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Mom's Third Pair of Purple Socks Finished

Mom asked for purple socks, and she got them - medium purple, dark purple, and now a pastel purple.

Pattern: More Fun Than Cables.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Iced Lilac.

Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.

Now that we've had our snow cover refreshed with a new layer of about six inches, the temps are going to drop down into the single digits tonight.

Good thing we bought 120 pounds of sunflower seed Wednesday. The birds are going to need to eat to keep their body heat up.
