Cabin Fever!

As you can see, I'm not going anywhere today. Lake effect snow has edged further inland today, and I feel like I'm living in a snow globe.

Cabin Fever is a state of mind that knows no logic. If the roads were clear and dry, I would be content to stay at home, doing my normal Sunday stuff. But I can't go anywhere, and suddenly I have this intense urge to go somewhere or do anything. Anything away from the house.

I'm done with Christmas knitting. I kept my gift knitting to a minimum and managed to surprise myself with a nice variety of knitted warm stuff for my family. I took a picture, but won't post till after we have our Christmas get together. Sometime in February, when the roads clear up.

I've moved on to knitting for babies, and I aim to make a delivery to the hospital in mid-January. I have just over a dozen ready to go, and maybe I can make it 2 dozen.

They say that the hats for newborns should fit over a medium grapefruit, and preemies are closer to oranges. I happened to have some beautiful ruby red grapefruit from Texas (Thanks, Mom!) and so I thought I would check out the hats.

Yup. They fit alright. Don't worry, I'll wash the hats before they go to the hospital.

Bean and the 5 hour baby sweater

The red 5 hour baby sweater fits Bean just perfectly. He's also wearing the red earflap hat that I made to match. It should fit through most of the winter. Don't you love those two little teeth and the big, gooey baby smile?
Another picture of Bean, just because I wish I were at Diametrag's house to give him a hug.

We got lake effect snow on Friday, and today a clipper system is dumping more snow. This vivid pink schlum finally opened yesterday, and it is a welcome spot of color this gray and snowy weekend.
