What is up with the weather?! It's 4° celsius now and the forecast high for today is 9° celsius with steady rain. Shouldn't this be snow? After all this is supposed to be January in Canada. Very odd weather indeed! What's next ... January showers bring February flowers?

On Saturday I finished this first red/grey sock. This morning I cast on the second. My plan is to focus on these socks until they're done and then bundle up several pairs of socks to post to the Warm Hands Network in time for their end of January shipment to Moosonee. Of all this stash-busting socks I've knit, I think these are my favourites. Or maybe I just like red?

I'd also like to finish up my blue Whitby socks this week. And finish up my Wool-Eater blanket by the end of the month. Then what? I've been looking at this hat pattern; it might be just perfect for chemo hats from some leftover worsted yarn in my stash. As well I've been looking at three skeins of laceweight yarn in my stash. If I hold it double one skein may work for this Miss Doolittle scarf pattern. I bought the pattern last year but have yet to knit it, so it's about time!

I love that sock color too. (Maybe because it looks like my school colors. LOL)

Our weather has been crazy warm too. I'm afraid things are going to start blooming and then we'll get a freak freeze in February.

That sock is beautiful. The color scheme kind of reminds me of the Fairly Easy Fair Isle Sweater from SnB Nation: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fairly-easy-fair-isle

I would not be surprised if my roses start blooming in Feburary if this weather keeps up!

Sock is looking great!
