It's Snowing In My Bathroom!

Really! It's snowing in my bathroom! See......

.....because I'm sure I wouldn't have been silly enough to try and snap a photo of myself in the cloche & cowl I knit without checking to see if the mirror was clean.

(Let's pretend the mirror got that way just this morning as folks were brushing their teeth to go to work/school, shall we?!)

Even though I think I look doofy (combination of "dufus" and "goofy") in hats, I am appreciating this lovely little hat I knit from the book Boutique Knits. (Did I mention it is currently -2*F here?) I think it goes with the cowl I knit just fine. When I wear them I feel like a girly girl, which is fun to feel like now and then.

WIP UPDATE: I have completed the first of the socks from the sock blank and have put the second sock onto the dpns. It will be done by the end of the month (which is Sunday for those of you who may be in denial about the fact that the first twelfth of 2010 is quietly, yet swiftly, drawing to a close!) Photos to come when both socks are completed.

Soon to be on the needles: Yesterday I received an afghan kit from my knitting pals. It's the New Traditions Afghan from Knit Picks.

I'm looking forward to casting on!

Happy Knitting!

First off, I never think to clean my mirror before I snap a picture. It's really so far down the list of important things, if you think about it. Second, my girlfriends and I have just been chatting about that very afghan/quilt and thinking how fabulous it is. A lengthy project, though!
