We got about four inches. Enough to be pretty but not enough to be a nuisance. Perfect.
The big drama was that I couldn't find any of my good mittens. I looked everywhere. I know I made a new pair last winter but what did I do with them? Dunno. Where are all my thrummed mittens? Dunno. I had to make do with these ratty ones. They had holes.
I did remember that I had a half finished pair left from last year in the Lopi bin but it didn't do me any good. In spite of holy mittens I did manage to get a lot of sweeping done. This was a sweepable event-no shovels needed. My favorite kind.
After all the exercise I treated myself to some pumpkin maple scones for breakfast.
They came from a mix. I got to use one of The Mister's newest pot holder creations.
I would have knit the day away if it wasn't for....you know. We took a nice walk on the wooded path as I swept. It was a lovely gray afternoon with softly falling flakes. I was in heaven. I love snow.
The night before I had finished the latest socks. I haven't cast on any new ones yet because I ordered new needles. I love the whole two at a time thing and I want two needle sets that are exactly the same from now on. My various Knit Picks needles, while pretty, are ever so slightly different and that annoys me. I ordered some ChiaGoo Reds from Amazon. They should be here Monday.
How about some Sunday soap to finish? I made three batches of chocolate soap last week in an effort to use up the big bag of natural cocoa butter that I had bought a while back. It really is like making soap with a giant chocolate bar. I can't wait to see how these turn out. Right now the soap room smells just like brownies.
