Power outage

Yes, it is true... we had some crazy weather yesterday and we lost powerat 10:30 in the morning! DH finished cooking his stuffing on the grill! Thankfully we we heading to my sister's for the meal... but as the lunch time hour grew closer I was thankful again for a gas hotwater heater so that I could take a warm shower before heading out! This is the third holiday we have lost power! Christmas two years ago.. my birthday (aug 14th when three states went down and now on t-day! :}

Well, overall it was an interesting meal with my family. I was cornered right fromt he start and forced to look at someone else's knitting projects! Sad but true. At home I was working on a pair of socks for my dad, but they seem to be too big even for him and his size 10 1/2 foot... what do you think?

I put those aside and picked up another project. I NEVER do that! This is a big step for me! I always finish one thing before staring another! I am badly influenced by reading all your blogs! And I think I caught some else's cold too! I think that is from reading blogs too! So today DH is snowboarding at Okemo and I am nursing my sore throat with tea and working on this:

I hope to get lots done today between sneezes and coughs!

Hi Maureen,
Thank you for the kind comments on my blog. You will love making the infant socks. They knit up quickly and really require only a little yarn. They are a perfect new baby gift.
Sorry to hear you lost power. We had a quick thunderstorm last night about 6:30. Now the cold temperatures are here!

Do you need me to share my antibiotics with you? I hope you feel better soon. Today, I finally feel on the mend. I am knitting a scarf in the exact same yarn as your socks. It is for my Son in law to match a hat for Christmas. Do you think men wear fringe on a scarf? I am undecided about fringing....Your second project looks interesting too. I imagine that yarn would be thick for a pair of socks. Do you think that is why the socks seem too big?
