Tuesday Knitting Report

I haven't made much progress on my sock since last week. The gusset is done and not I'm headed to the toes. My sock knitting time kind of got side tracked with this hat and the Kindle. I'm not talented enough to be able to read and knit at the same time. So I have to choose.

We've had a late winter storm--anyhow that's what the news people are calling it. Anytime there is snow in Portland OR, it is a major news event. After their snow time passed and the rains came, we still got snow. A full day and night of wet, heavy snow. It's weird to watch the news and see the rain, then look outside and see only white. We are about 3 miles away from the banana belt line. I'm hoping it's over and we are headed into spring. My bulbs are up all over the place and trees are starting to bud. I hope this storm didn't destroy anything.

Today is turned to light rain. I put on my boots and walked to the mail box and to take care of the chickens. There was 5 inches of snow on top of 2 inches of sloppy wet slush. I felt like I had on lead boots. Sure gave this ole out of shape gal a workout!!! So now I will put on my jammies and get ready for a quiet night of sock knitting.

That sounds sooooooooo good, bulbs are out, and buds on trees. We're still buried under snow. (sigh) What happened to your audio books? Then you can knit and read at the same time.

Oh no, that means another storm is headed my way! I am so sick of winter and SNOW and ready for some rain and green grass.

Thee hat AND the socks are cute!! Here's wishing you spring weather soon! Although we haven't had snow, I am very tired of the cold. It looks like we are finally past our freezing temps, although morning temps will still dip into the mid-30s a few more times before they give over to spring.

I think we are all sick and tired of this winter and ready to move on to warmer weather. Love your knit socks.
