Finally some knitting!

I am taking a Magic Loop class from The Tangled Skein and learning a new way to knit - so cool!

I'm also working on a hat for me. I think I may have finally found a hat that I look halfway decent in!

I was originally going to do it all in the charcoal but the braid didn't show up very well. I decided on the pretty brown color instead for the braided area and then switch to the charcoal. I'm hoping to make their cabled mittens in the charcoal for a matched set. Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair yarn and Green Mountain pattern.

My new pair of shoes?

This is the "pair" of shoes I wore to work on Friday.

When I am sitting at my desk I usually have them slipped off but something felt "weird" when I would walk around. I didn't figure it out (or really look) until almost 5 pm. Can you tell what's wrong?

I was either distracted, tired or too rushed that morning and grabbed one of Jim's and one of my shoes before I ran out the door.

Good grief! His are 3 sizes larger than mine!

Early Morning Fog

With all of these warm temps, the snow has been melting. This has made for lots of moisture in the air and early morning fog. As yucky as the fog is to drive in, it sure makes for gorgeous trees!

Sadie Hawkins Dance

Chris attended the Sadie Hawkins Dance - doesn't he clean up well?

Mom, my truck won't start...

by 5:30 when hubby and I got there, it had turned into:
1) Jump start it with the Buick
2) Dig out the snow piled into the back
3) find a portable air compressor and refill the front right tire (that is only 8 days old!)

Testosterone poisoning? Revenge of the teacher who had their vehicle buried and didn't know Mom and Dad would pay?

At least I finally got to wear my "Elmer Fudd" hat since it was almost -10!
