Last minute knitting

I finished a second linen washcloth, which I will either gift or keep, we will see where it will be needed.  With the approach of WEATHER I went out to get essentials today: basalmic vinegar, cheese, pickled herring and yarn.  We are supposed to have 8-10 inches of snow by this time tomorrow and when i'm not shoveling I intend to enjoy the food I love and knit.  Honestly I have plenty of stash, but I needed specific weight and colors for a couple projects.

I started my first pair of fetching.  They are intended for my sister.  Considering that my socks for her fell flat last Christmas, I'm trying something for her hands instead.  I'm knitting with a lovely alpaca and wool blend that is super soft.

I'm making a pair of mittens for another friend and a hat for a third.  I have some fulled gauntlets that need to be embroidered, but that can wait a bit.

I'm curious to see what the morning will bring and how high the snow drifts will be.  I'm sure the rabbit in our back yard will need to dig deeper to access the parsley buried under the straw mulch in my herb garden.  There were little green stems sticking out of the snow and a flattened area created by a furry butt.

Merry Christmas. I'm not too certain about pickled herring being an essential but my mother approves. Hopes your Christmas knitting goes well.
