Wintry Wonderland and New Knitting

I woke up this morning to a wintry wonderland.  And more shoveling — sigh.  I tried to take a couple of photos, but they didn’t turn out well.  I think we got about 5 inches of heavy wet snow overnight.  And it snowed off and on all day.  And now COLD COLD and windy for the rest of the week.

Hunting socks

This is a photo of one of my current projects.  Brown Wooleased and tan alpaca.  I have 5 inches done on the cuff of the first sock.  I am knitting these on a US size 4.

The weekend went by fairly quickly.  Saturday I picked up a few groceries and went to the library.  I couldn’t get into Anne Tyler’s new book, Noah’s Compass, so I took it back.  Maybe I will finish it at a later date.  I have done that before with books.  I picked up some new reads — Classic Knits by Erika Knight, Italian Shoes by Henning Mankell, The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel, and The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl.

I got the family room re-organized for the first time after getting new carpet.  I got my laundry and ironing caught up. I re-organized my bins of yarn.  Listened to music.  Did some cooking.  I made a spicy cauliflower soup, eggplant parmesan, black bean salsa to eat with tortilla chips, potato soup, and walnut date muffins.  I won’t starve this week!
