It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

We got our first snowfall of the season last night. It changed to rain during the day, but we should get more snow tonight. DC just got rain, so all government employees, including Mike, went in today. We needed new tires before the icy weather hit, so Mike was gone nearly all evening yesterday waiting at the car place. With all of the craziness, I didn't finish the socks or the hat last night. (I am past the heel and only have about 3 inches to go.) After these, I have one more pair of socks and the gloves that I need to finish by the 14th. I'm reevaluating my gift list and know that I don't have time to knit everything I'd planned. Plan B went into effect today, so I've been making Christmas soaps and putting together baskets. I have a few more soaps to make, but I need to buy some more soap base before I can finish. I also need to get some for the candles for the baskets, so I'm hoping stores will be open tomorrow. Keep warm; and I'll be back again Monday, hopefully with some finished knitting!

Oh it does look like good knitting weather! The snow is beautiful!
(Says the girl from California, who has to travel to see any snow!)

I'm on to my "Plan B" gift list too. There just aren't enough days left before the holiday to do everything that I want.

I was inspired to try Wendy's sock pattern, after seeing what success you've had with it! So far I'm just past the toe and ready to rock and roll! Thanks for the inspiration! I hope my socks look as nice as yours do when I'm finished!!
