I think it just might be too cold for it to snow later this week... at this point, I don't know if that's a good thing or bad... Winter sure is off to one helluva start!

The kids are cold and not much for playing outside these days. This is how they looked before I left for work this morning...

You'll notice Teutul's the only one looking wide awake... you see, he's doing his best to impatiently wait for his breakfast treat. He's very good at that.

There's been a little more knitting going on in my house...

The belated Christmas gift is coming along, as is my ISE7 pal's scarf...

The Cross Stitch scarf is chugging right along as well... after all its my current mindless knit and the past two evenings have been consumed with the season premiere of 24 (Jack's Back... and I just knew Tony had to be up to something good...)!

Last night while putting together yet another project bag (raging startitis... yes, yes) for a Lesley Sunsuit for my nephew's April baby, I had to call out a search party for for my size 7 16" circs to go in said project bag (a small Vera Bradley, in case you're wondering). After much cursing about 10 minutes I discovered them in another dusty project bag ... from when I took the double knitting class at Halcyon in Augst... 2007 (side note... see all the yarn purchased? I've yet to knit with any of it... and am remembering to keep in the "knit from the stash in 2009" frame of mind...)! Yup - there they were with the headband project still on them, all of about 4 rows completed. Did I RIP it? Nope... I figured I'd re-teach myself how to double knit and think about completing the project before starting the baby's romper.

This means I'll either finish up this little diddy soon... or it'll be frogged in frustration... we'll see. Care to flip a coin?

I vote for ripped. I accidently taught myself doubleknitting when I took a stranded knitting class. Don't ask - I don't think I could do it again.

Love the scarfs, and the snow. g

Given your current state of mind, I'm betting on frogged. ;)

Rippit, rippit...snol. I've frogged a bunch of stuff here lately.

The pups look so cute!
