Snow, Snow, SNOW!

I have no snow pictures, because I'm not going outside....BUT I might actually get to use our new fireplace :-) and for that I'm kindof excited.

I've had a few weeks of migraines, but yesterday topped them all. I think it was because of the snow, rain always gets me, but I hadn't considered snow before, so now I realize that's probably why winters are so bad for me....Hmmm, maybe I'll move closer to Wool Winder. Looks nice there doesn't it!

I haven't really made any progress on the socks, but I did finish my blanket square (so we have enough squares for our Christmas blanket, I casted on a tomten jacket, knit about four rows, and decided that I didn't like something, either the needles or the yarn, not sure which, but that's the end of that. I also casted on another baby bib o'love, because I wanted to knit, but needed some plain old garter stitch. Sooo, no work on the sock :-(

Here is a picture of the baby kimono finally finished and gifted at the baby shower. I finally finished sewing it up. I finished the knitting around September, but the sewing up didn't happen until Wednesday night...because the baby shower was on Thursday!
Instead of ribbons I opted for just a crocheted tie, because some moms have told me that the ribbons get caught on velcro in the washer and end up ruined. I hope this looks OK. Sarah seemed happy with it, but I also got her a one hour massage, so I think she was drunk on the idea of someone rubbing down all her sore spots..hehe....

I love the baby kimono. I have a friend from church that is expecting in April. I'll have to give this pattern a try.
No snow here. For some reason this year I can wait for the snow! Normally you would here me comment that I can't wait for it to snow.

I'm sorry this is your season of migraines. I hope that they cease, I'll pray about it! Love the kimono, it turned out lovely. You have a whole month or so to get those socks done! No worries. Enjoy the rhythm of garter stitch! Knit, knit, knit, knit. I love the burp cloth in that book too!

Somehow I missed this post earlier. The kimono is so cute! If you ever need to escape the snow, come for a visit.
