We've been lucky, here in Toronto; that's us in the clear area of the radar map with the bulk of the storm to the north and east of us. Despite desperate forecasts suggesting a snow-pocalypse was headed our way, we awoke this morning to a couple of centimetres of blowing snow. A few more centimetres are expected through the day today, but so far we don't even have enough to break out the snow shovel. Now that's lucky!
Last night I finished the first of my Socks for Christy - thanks to everyone for your encouragement, I did go ahead with the heel as is. The second sock is cast on for knitting on the train trip to work this morning. It is a very pretty sock; I think I will have to knit another pair with the correct ribbed heel. It's exactly the kind of fancy sock that I like to knit for Christmas presents. Oh, sorry... maybe it's too soon to start thinking about next Christmas?
