A Wintery Finish

1. This is the driving range near our home.  Yes that is snow.  It is a heated double decker driving range.  Even if you stand directly under the heater and swing, you are going to be freezing.  They have a nice bar and good burgers so we enjoyed dinner there last night.  We did not bring our clubs....We may live in Chicago but we are not that koo koo...
2. Here's my second sock finish of the year.  Go Go Grassy in Dream in color smooshy.  I made them too big for me so I can gift them.  I love the springy part of this yarn.  I loved getting on super sale at my LYS after Christmas sale....
I tried a eye of partridge heel and just love the look.  So they have to be blocked, but they were a great little knit.  I also have to say the Russian graft seam feels comfortable to my hand .....when I put it in there and felt around. 

3.  The bunny on the last post is my angora plan. Someday, I may raise a few angora's for their fibers.  I hear they poop a lot.  I 'd keep them outside in a safe and cozy hut.  

4. I helped out with the shelter photos today.  I'm not up for being in them again, but I sure had fun helping the photographer and the other volunteers get the dogs ready.  I think it is odd that I loved my Huck so much and I just don't have any desire for a dog again.
Isnt' that odd?


How's your Saturday going?

Brrr....frozen golf doesn't look fun at all. Pretty socks. I love that color. Green is very appealing at the moment with all this white that is still hanging around.

I had an Angora rabbit and they don't poop any more than any other kind of pet. LOL! But you definitely have a hard time cleaning it out of their cage as their long hair mixes in with it and it's hard to remove. They need a friend, too. And give them lots of fresh veg for treats. Have fun! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Nice socks! I like the eye of partridge heel also. I think it has nice padding for your heel. That golf course looks freezing. I don't think I'd be interested in playing there either at this point in the season. Happy Sunday!
Blessings, Betsy

Nice job on the socks! I like that you are trying different techniques; I like the rut I am in! Dinner, good-golf, not so much! lol

Very pretty socks! Love the color! The snow....not so much. LOL

The socks and snow complement each other well, and the light sage yarn you knit is lovely.

Golfers are a hardy bunch!

Your heart will always be with Huck and now it involves so many wonderful cats. By the way I want that bunny.

Great socks! (and now you can play with your cashmere!)

My Saturday was nice and lazy - a lot of knitting and not much else!
