Monday, Monday......

The local weatherman just didn't get the forecast right this time around. For days he kept calling for snow down to pass level and that the freeways would be impacted. It just never happened, which is probably a good thing for us. In fact, it wasn't even measureable - more like a splattering. Yep, that's a good word for it - a splattering.

The yarn arrived from Skacel Yarn Co. and it's dreamy! I love the "Step" line of sock yarns. They're infused with aloe and jojoba oil and feel almost cashmere-like. The yarn company claims this infusion will last approximately 40 washings and is supposed to soften your skin. A photo never does the colors justice. I sure wish you could feel these. I'll be adding them to our Etsy shop later today.

I had a milestone birthday recently and my dear, dear friend Kathleen, handcranked two lovely pair of socks for me. They are superb! Absolutely delightful to wear. Your birthday is next Kathleen!

With the weather nice and brisk, I made a big pot of homemade chili and we'll have seconds this evening. I love it when I don't have to cook, just reheat! And that means more time today to crank out socks! Pictures will follow for sure.

Have a great day out there and don't forget about this month's giveaway. Just read the "Doris Meets Otto" post for all the details. Someone's about to win a pair of handknitted women's mittens.

Well, Happy Birthday.Your socks are great. I think we are over cold weather for the season. It was 79 degrees today. I am now worried about how hot July is going to be. Enjoy the week and the yarn.

I think we got all your snow! It dumped here over the weekend and is now cold. Streets are icy and not fun to walk on.
