Mostly about knitting and spinning cause that's what I do.
Using black Opal and more of the leftover Regia FastKoffe bits, will try and keep the black patterns constant thru out the 2nd sock but because of using scraps the colors will bounce around, and that's OK real Monstersocks.
Hasn't been much going on worth writing about, still trying to bring old blog back, although am now fearing that it is kind of like beating my head up against the brick wall.
Woke up to heavy snow Saturday morning, enuff that ground was white and big trees on hillside where loaded with wet snow, by about noon turned to a nice gentle rain and in just an hour or two snow was gone. Now all snow from my yard is gone, first time since mid October that I can say that. Betting tho that we will get more snow before this winter quits.
Going to Tatla later today to see if I can't get Kindle Fire to talk to my downloaded books. Have a friend there that will help with the problem, may even turn her loose on blog problem.
Windy enuff that leaves are coming down as yellow snow. Everything started turning color about a month ago now far enuff along that they've started coming down. And with rain in forecast they will fall then even faster. Rain is most welcome especially after the fires this summer, some won't be completely out until snow flies (and some of the bigger ones not even then).
Have been working on Monstersocks, white pair I started and finished straight away, the pinky pair were started in May (hangs head in shame), other things I liked better got in the way.

About 25 km west of Williams Lake, wonder where all the water came from. Glad I hadn't planned on going to town anytime soon. Think it will take a large amount of fill to fix this mess. According to Dept. of Highways its just over 500 feet wide. Click on pix to make it larger.
Finished a pair of socks just needing the afterthought heels added, started working on them the end of November last year, prolly have been sitting since around Christmas just needing the heels. Really no excuse for not doing it sooner. Also nearly down to toe decreases on Kristie's first sock.
I sorta bet my stash that sooner or later would have grizzlies in my yard, last night just before 10 pm saw movement over to the east of my fence, sure enuff Mom and 2 of last years cubs ambled along the fence heading for the swampy areas (aka stump patch).

Got my bed changed yesterday, every Sunday rip sh** or bust. Still using flannel she…
