Knitting with my first cup of coffee

Today started out really well. By 8am I was sitting on my couch with my first cup of coffee knitting a sock and looking at the snow outside. It's finally winter. The snow boarders are jubilant. It snowed and snowed and snowed. I love it. Even though I have shoveled the driveway 3 times and the power went out 5 times so far, it's still beautiful.
It was looking like a Christmas card out there. The air was crisp, the flakes were falling and the sound of snow blowers filled the air.

It put me in the Christmas spirit. For the last couple of years I have not been knitting much for gift giving but this year I feel the urge. I started a pair of socks last night and today given one more hour to knit I will have turned the heel. I'm working on the theory that a pair of boot socks (in DK or worsted weight yarn) can be done in one week. How many weeks before the big day? Just checked the calendar and there are 4 more weeks. Now to decide who gets socks! Wait, aren't mittens even faster. How many of those can I do in a week. Hmm.
Are you knitting for Christmas?
PS: Sharon, I also think of Purple as a neutral along with Navy Blue, two of my favs.


  1. A very nice looking sock!! Simple, graphic & warm, the proper combination. I'll take those.
    I got my tires rotated today & the tire boys reminded me that they all need new touques. Guess what I'm knitting????

  2. Not knitting for Christmas. At least, nothing that will be finished. lol Jed

  3. You live on the wrong side of the Bay. No snow here in Thornbury.
