Pink Socks and Snow

These socks weren't on the list of things I was planning to knit, but there were two skeins of pink Bretton left over from the vest and I couldn't resist knitting Mom a pair of matching socks.

Pattern: Basic cuff down socks knit on 56 stitches. Stitch pattern is k2, p2 rib with the k2 stitches crossed every 4th row.

Yarn: Patternworks Bretton. 70% superwash wool, 25% nylon, 5% alpaca.

Color: Pink Diamond.

Needles: #3.

Gauge: 7 stitches/inch in stockinette.

Winter is back in SW Michigan.

Once again we're below freezing. Lows are in the teens, highs are in the mid twenties.

It snowed most of the day today and dumped another inch this evening. More snow in the forecast starting after midnight. The forecast for Friday is snow. The forecast for Saturday is 100% probability of "heavy snow".

Hey honey, do you think this snow is ever going to stop so we can make some baby birds?
