On the knitting front I still am working on the same socks and I've started a prayer shawl. I am going to knitting in the morning with the intent to finish the Murky pair. Today I purchased these fabulous shoes to show off my knitted socks! Aren't they cute?

The most beautiful shawl in browns and I'm sorry I don't know the pattern but it looks like leaves. I just can't believe I have such a talented partner. I have been sooooo lucky in this swap to have got her.
This is ML showing minimal enthusiasm for the pecans (which are a favorite snack for him.) Isn't he cute!

It's super cold out. I can't wait for summer to be here. I have to go grocery shopping and the thought of loading and unloading the van with the wind ripping through you has me snuggled under a blanket with the dog instead.
Speaking of dogs. ML and I will be going to Georgia to visit Stephanie for the weekend and we'll be bringing a dog home. Another Chihuahua, so Nina will have a new friend named Rosalie. I think every one is excited. She will be a rescue and I here how sweet she is from all that know her so I'm sure she'll be a good fit.
My swap partner received her package and said she loved it and the socks fit. That's a big relief. I can't seem to get any more photos uploaded so I'll try again later.
I've also started two new socks. 1st pair is Chewy Spaghetti in Murky. Just a basic rib. The second pair is Duets in Neon Love. It's mostly st st but it does have a cute lace heart around the leg.
I also am working on a scarf with Schaefer in Rosa Parks. I think I'm intrequed with this scarf. It's got me thinking about what other scarfs I might like. Maybe it just too cold out today to think of any thing but staying warm.

We have several inches of snow on the ground today with a nice thick layer of ice under it. Of course since the schools called a snow day last week (when we had almost no snow) they all went today. You only get two snow days figured in the calander and if more are taken school gets out later in the summer and the teachers and other staff hate that. So off to school we go after deicing the van and prying the frozen doors open and almost killing myself on the icy driveway. Happy winter to you, too.
