The spring peepers lied!!!

Exhibit A: ice-snow.jpg Definitely not spring here at the moment. We got a layer of ice (you can see where I swept the snow aside), followed by snow that’s still falling, first from one direction, then from another. Toby went out a little while ago and came back with a fair amount of snow, even in a very short time. I hope the peepers managed to get back down into the mud at the bottom of the pond, since it’s supposed to get colder!

At times like this, I’m glad to have real (as in wool, and in the Velveteen Rabbit sense) socks. For some reason, when it comes to handknit socks, I love wild where I would usually stick to plain (usually navy blue) and boring. This is one of my fave pairs, and the colors are definitely not plain! socks2.jpg socks1.jpg
At least I can go back to my knitting with warm feet.
