Snow Day!!!

Today started out like any other.  The alarm went off at 0445 and I rolled out of bed and started coffee.  Surprisingly, I was happy when I was greeted by an extrodinary amount of snow outside.


The day end up being quite pleasant.  The scene was beautiful ...


and, it was fantastic opportunity to spend some time with my angels.


It was an absolutely perfect day.

Selfish Crafter

After spending so much time knitting gifts for Christmas, it's time to focus on my for a bit. I really enjoyed the hats, gloves and scarf I made but I need to finish a few things for myself. I have two Pair of socks on the needles and a sweater calling me too.


I am just about finished with my hand spun socks and then it will be on to the last pair of club sock I started from last year. I have a hard time starting new things when the old stuff is laying around. I feel like I need to close out 2010 still.


This hasn't stopped me from spinning a bit though...


Happily enjoying my selfish crafting!

Crafting 'til the last minutes

One of the gifts I made this season that made me the most proud was the bar towels I made for DH. They were a LOT simpler than I expected and I knocked them out in one day... Probably a totally of two hours to complete four from start to finish.

They are just cotton hand towels, backed with terrycloth. I figured I would ad the terrycloth for absorbency - they are bar towels after all.
