Snow Day!!!

It's been frickin' cold here lately and we haven't gotten a smidge of snow!!! I know that to most people, the lack of snow is a very good thing, but I like snow!!!!!

So, to cope with the lack of snow, we headed to the mountains to go play for the day! We had a ball! We took all the doggies with us and a couple inner tubes. The inner tubes turned out to both have leaks so we didn't get to use those, but we threw snowballs for the dogs for hours.
I was so impressed that the dogs didn't mind the cold a bit!!! Not even Guppy!
The we attempted to make a giant snowman, but by the time this snowball was as big as it is, it was to heavy for us to move it to a better spot to make the belly and head so we made a giant snow face instead....


Then it was back home and I made great progress on February's Lucky Lurker Pattern...obviously I can't show you what I have so far, but it's coming right along :)

Then I started feeling super crafty and dug out my long lost knitting machine. This thing is a kick! You can whip out stockinette like there is no tomorrow! Adding ribbing is a bit time consuming, but no where near the same time it would take to knit the entire thing by hand.

This was a little project I have been wanting to do for a long time...Legwarmers! Yes, seriously, legwarmers!!!! I go walking and I don't have many long socks and each night I do go, I think 'man, I wish I had a pair of legwarmers' :) Don't laugh!! Yes, seriously, legwarmers!!!!! The 80s are coming back you know!!!!! :)

I will be showing these bad boys (or would it be girls) off real soon!!!

ooh the knitting machine! There's one at my grandparent's house that they always asked me to take...but never did because it looked pretty scary.
