This weekend was busy but nice. I saw my first Wisconsin snowfall of the season. Pretty, just under half a foot or so, and not too cold.
I also got a package from our Cookie (shutupandknit.typepad.com). (and yes, typepad's iPad app essyouseekayess regarding links.)
There were socks that fit perfectly knit with Fannie's Fingerling Weight sock yarn in the Old Roses colorway. Cookie said she used the Harris Tweed rib and Cookie Cutter Short Rows for the toes and heels. She knit them toe-up using Magic Loop, "of course," and used a sewn bind off. (I will have to look that up....not that I finish stuff that often, but just in case. *g*)
Cookie also tucked in a Minion wearing an orange vest for visibility and a very cute ribbed hat. Min investigated the snow and then tucked himself into my suitcase to see DC. He just noted that it feels pretty cold in DC, too! He also said something about some chocolate but I can't hear him since he's a bit muffled from jumping back into my suitcase.
Thank you, Cookie, for Min to keep me company and socks to keep me warm.
DH and I put up the Christmas tree and slept out in the addition two nights with the wood stove going all night, for fun. And it was. :D. We woke up to the snow, which was pretty neat, with it all sparkling and clean.
It was a good weekend.
