Kinda meh

Yesterday’s snowfall was pretty, but hard to clean up. I am really tired today from all the shoveling. Carol E of Giraffe Dreams has good photos of the snowstorm if you want to see.

Now, the recently completed project that was just meh? It’s a rug.

The battle may be lost, but the war is not over

I tried to knit myself some socks. I really tried. All I can offer as evidence is this slightly blurry photo of stockinette.

ID10T
