In the night garden.

The view from our back bedroom window at 11pm last night.



Susie is loving the snow, she rubs her nose in it. I went to the park as it was snowing quite heavily yesterday afternoon and she met and played with two other dogs, and had a great time. I think we ended up out for about an hour.

I started designing my socks yesterday, it's harder than it looks. I've got the design I want, I just have to get it arranged in the round to make it symmetrical. At the moment it will work for 2 circs or magic loop but not DPNs. I have an idea for that though. I have only done a tiny swatch to see what the design will look like but today I will make a start on the real thing. When I am done I will be asking for a couple of test knitters if anyone fancies it?

Is that what it really looked like? You didn't enhance the colour or anything? That is beautiful! How fun to have snow. Okieland gets the weird ice, but rarely snow. :( Not like "up north" where I used to live. When I show the boys, they will want to come live with you!

Can't wait to see your designs! If your test knitters don't have to be local, I'll sign up. :)

Lovely photos.
UI'd be happy to help out with the test knitting.

That's exactly how the picture came out. The shutter did stay open quite a while.

I'll keep you both in mind for the test knitting, have only completed the rib so far, don't think I need to test that!
