Squares, Squares, Squares

I see them in my sleep.

I'm about a quarter of the way there ... I love the look of patchwork blankies, so it's worth the tedium!

I'm trying to be inventive when a skein runs short, and combine bits and pieces in one square.

 The pile slowly grows...

Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Work in Progress Wednesday!

Snow Day II

Here we go again!

The pup is not too happy with this snowfall.

It's very heavy and wet, and she has velcro-fur that attracts ice balls. She did what she had to do, but not happily, and without wasting any time.

Unfortunately, it's not done yet! I'm in the upper right-hand corner, and this big blue thing is heading right for me. 2 - 4 more inches starting later this afternoon. I went out and shoveled, mostly out of boredom and cabin fever, but also so I would only be shoveling 4" tomorrow, and not 13. My neighbors had the same idea.

Well, it's a chance to knit, read, and make soup, anyway. I have abandoned everything to knit this:

Wait, Edgar's in the way....
Well, that's a little better. It's a baby square blanket. There's a story behind it, but I'll save that for another day.

Soup? I made potato-cauliflower-leek with lots of turmeric. And I got to use my immersion blender, which is always fun because I usually lift it too soon and have to wipe down everything afterward. You'd think I would learn.

Can you make out the front porch kitty in this photo? She's pretty cozy and comfy.

Till next time!

Baby Stuff

Sunday, I abandoned everything I was working on to make some baby stuff.

It's a Baby Leaves Baby Hat. I didn't block it because then it would be HUGE.

Tiny little mitts ... I improvised this pattern.

And socks, which I'm going to try to make curly-toed, like elf shoes.

Should be done soon.

They're for a co-worker who is expecting her first daughter in March.

Georgie Girl and Molly Cat remind you that cuddling shares body heat!
