December 1st = 1st snow!

We got 3" which is lots for us. Thankfully, it was Saturday and we were at home, not stranded at work. We all panic whenever the 's' word is mentioned. I know, we're wimps! :) It down poured Sunday and is still raining and windy. We like rain, but this is ridiculous! There's been flooding everywhere. I hydroplaned all the way to the Park & Ride... it was scary.

Oregon has leaves!
Wooly said, "WOW! That looks cool!" He couldn't believe I was stranding. He thought I was working on "the blue one."

Fulmar, "the blue one" is growing slowly.

This is one 24 row repeat for the front. I've been stuck here and I don't like the way the cables look... kinda tight... maybe from stress of the season?
I finally woke up from denial of Christmas. I'm making these scarves for my friends out of Kidsilk Night - the one that's shiny. I'm beading the edges. It's your basic horseshoe lace pattern called Scalloped Scarf by Rebecca DeGaris. Have you ever kitchener stitched with Kidsilk?! Yikes! I ordered more yarn since my LYS is lacking and hope it arrives soon... or they will be New Years gifts!
Hope you're all warm and cozy and able to maintain peace of mind, despite the pressure that is this season. I'm working on it daily and trying not to freak out! NO! I'm NOT decorating the house! LOL! m :)

Oregon looks great.

Fulmar looks faboulous!

Scarves for Christmas -- on my -- that's terrific!

We got our first snow up her on Sunday -- it's lovely and I hope it stays around for Christmas!

WOW! Michelle, everything you have been knitting looks great!
You have made so much progress on Fulmar I am quite ashamed of myself.
Oregon looks so beautiful... of course that's my FI bias showing... I like it best!
You are so lucky to have snow... well, maybe not. It's probably really dangerous to drive around Washington because people aren't used to it. All of our snow melted to slaggy ice and I miss it. Hope your electricity stayed on and that you didn't have any storm damage.

Oregon looks fabulous! The colours are very close to the original.

Looks like the snow is here to stay too - I for one love it.

My poor Fulmar...neglected due to all of the Christmas knitting I'm trying to get done...hopefully in time!

Michelle- Your Oregon is beautiful- and I may make amends with KSH after seeing your pretty scarves.

I adore snow too, like Brigitte- but we're from Montreal and Toronto, we gotta love it.
