Early morning snow walks

February 22, 2008

It finally snowed in Philly!I had to be at work at 7am this morning for a meeting. Upon waking up and discovering that it snowed all night, I was filled with mixed emotions. I love snow and have been waiting for it for months and months. I don’t love having to go in to the office at 7am. Ehh, it all worked out, and I got to have a morning romp in the chilly white flakes…while wearing my Noro Washington Socks. Finally got around to stitching that left toe shut last night, and here they are.

I took copiuous notes when making the right sock, in hopes that my socks would match (in all but colors, since Noro is so multicoloredly lovely). Well, either I measured wrong, or read my measurements wrong, or am just really out of it sometimes because the toes don’t match. Left is a little bigger than Right, yet left has a longer unribbed toe than Right. Le sigh. Maybe my next socks will be better formatted to be a fitting pair. They’re still comfortable, colorful, and warm. Numerous compliments, and a chance to see how my birk london’s show off handknit socks. All in all a winner!

Rumor has it that the snow will be all rained away by nighttime. How lame is that?

It snowed in Philadelphia!

    Thanks for the snow shot … I’m an ex-Philadelphian (Abington) sorely missing home right now. 😉

    I LOVE your socks! Makes me want to knit up my Noro socks. What color did you use? I may have to get some.

  3. […] Philadelphia has been warm and amazingly pleasant these past few days (an amazing contrast from the snow of a few weeks ago). Drinking wine with old friends on the stoop of my house is a great way to spend a Tuesday night. […]
