Housebound Knitting

My school district canceled school today, so I busied myself getting a project done for a friend of mine. Initially, I was just planning on doing the socks, but had enough yarn left over to do a hat as well. So, he gets both. I tried something different with the socks. I used the heavy worsted wool, but instead of using the recommended US7 or US8 needles, I used US5.

Only about 6 more rounds of pattern to go (8") and I'll be done with this bad boy.

The Storms pass through here to blow onto the East with fury.

We have actually gotten a bit more snow than normal this year. I woke up to a bit of a white world for three weekends in a row again this morning.

Paton's Decor Warm Thoughts Throw

Does anyone have the pattern for the Warm Thoughts Throw? I used to have the pattern. Problem is I'm only half way done with the blanket. Google doesn't help. Nor does Ravelry.

Snow Snow Snow

No Knitting to share this time, just photos of what NW burbs of Chicago look like with 13" of snow in two days and there is more falling. Why do we live in this climate!?
Now where did I put that ticket to the tropics?
Enjoy.

My Five Day Fair Isle Raglan

I had fun knitting this top down raglan. No charts or pre-planning...just "composed" as I knit. The yarn is KnitPicks "Chroma" that I bought last year during their half price blow-out sale. The raglan yoke and body took three days to knit, each sleeve took one day....five days of fun!
