Walk With Me (Brrrrr!)

Yesterday afternoon was the first snowfall of the season. True, it wasn't much, but it did make for an interesting walk this morning.

Michael's car still had snow on it, as well as a liberal helping of frost.

The marigolds in the yard still stand vigilant over the snow dusting.

And the mountains in the distance can be seen to have their first white coating of the winter season. Annie and some of her friends tried to drive up there last night to play in the snow. They got a little ways up one of the canyons before the road became too icy. They stopped at that point and got out to walk in the snow and throw snowballs. It's a treat for us southern Arizonans to be able to do that.

On the knitting front, I spent more time knitting yesterday than I have in a long time. The arm didn't give out until about 8:00 last night. I found out, though, that the heavier yarn in the Red Scarf is definitely aggravating the lingering soreness. So I am going to limit the work I do on that to just a small amount each day.

The Pumpkin socks are coming along easily, now that I am in the stockinette portion of the foot. Such a small gauge with these Size 00 needles!

And if you were spending time in Flagstaff with Maria, this is what her walk to work looks like!

The pumpkin sock rocks! Is this the second sock, or do you have to do the twin yet?

Those snowy pictures look soooo cold! Keep that sore arm well wrapped up, and drive carefully!
