Red Sky in the Morning, Sailors Take Warning........

When we see a sunrise like this and hear the weekend's forecast, we know it's going to get ugly. Reminds us of the well known little saying - "Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning - red sky at night, sailor's delight. First we're supposed to start with rain after midnight tonight. Tomorrow the snows arrive around 5,000 feet. By late Sunday into Monday, the snow will impact all our mountain passes and be down to 4,000 feet. We live at an altitude of about 4,500 feet, so today I'll need to batten down the hatches. My little potted rosemary plant will be brought inside and all the garden hoses put away now for the winter.

Yesterday I mailed off the completed project and written instructions to Coats and Clark. Then I decided to look for any unfinished projects and found these ankle socks. The yarn is called "Happy Feet" from Plymouth Yarn Co. - don't you love the colors? They make this in a DK weight also. I just love this yarn!

Then I found this patriotic scarf that I had cranked out on "Doris" (she's our antique sock machine) and decided to list it in our Etsy store. I love getting all these loose ends tied up!

The end of the month is fast approaching, so if you haven't entered our November Sock Giveaway, please read that post for details. On Dec. 1st, I'll be announcing the winner of a women's pair of hand cranked socks. And I gotta tell you, there's nothing like wearing a nice warm pair of wool socks!

What's the weather doing where you live?

Wow! Even though you are expecting bad weather, that is a gorgeous picture of the sky! The blue in the socks is great, too.

Yes I saw the news and whenever I see that the snow will be around 4000 ft. I know my son and his wife will have snow. They don't live at 4000 ft. but they live at the foot hills of the San Bernardino Mountains and they usually get light snow when every time the news says 4000 ft. The sky picture is really great and so are the blue socks.
