First Snow, Spinning and Knitting, More Shopping

We had the first snow of the season. It didn't quite cover the ground. The grass was still peeking out from underneath. More is projected for this weekend. I hope not because I have plans for Saturday to go to the Spinners Guild meeting/party and then a play that evening. I'm planning to bring the sausage, potato, peppers and onions casserole Pat loves so much. Of course, I have to make him some too.

I've been hand carding, spinning, and getting ready to knit some of the fiber for the charity hats. I hope to finish it in time for Saturday when I can give it to Jean for the collection. If I don't quite make it, I know I can give it to her later. Also the Nanner Socks are just about at the rib. I just need to finish the last repeat of the pattern. My Group 9 Traveling Scarves are finished. Mine returned home a little over a week ago. It's very nice and I'll post a picture as soon as I can get one. My Group 38 Crochet Sideways scarves are moving again. I have 2 on the way here. I need to run by the Post Office anyway and maybe they are waiting for me today. That would be good so I can hopefully get them out to the next person by next week.

I've been shopping some more. My Copperpot Woolies order came in the same time as my CJKopec order did. I have another order coming from Loop as well as The Loopy Ewe.

Christmas shopping is almost finished. I just need to take care of my husband's gift. He keeps telling me not to get him anything. Just a card. We go through this every year, and I never listen. Usually, I get him gift certificates that I know he will use. The funny thing is, he has one he can't find. It's for Back to Basics for his special foods. I think it was a good one because he can get a lot of gluten free foods there.

Well, I need to get ready to go out and do some more errands. Tonight is Knit Night at Sue's shop. Marva and I are planning to head up there and I need to pick her up at 5:30 from work. See ya later.......

Looking forward to Saturday. I am trying to re-arrange some stuff so I can get out there. I actually have my charity hat done (pics on blog) which I wasn't sure would get done in time.

Have fun at Panera tonight. Wish I was there!
