...was not where I intended to be this afternoon. I had planned to spend an hour or two at the shop catching up with folks before heading to my sister's to resume our weekly knitting (and wine) time.

But the weather reports were downright scary - we moved from tornado watch to tornado warning, with plenty of nasty rain, thunder and lightning thrown in. Karen and I rescheduled for tomorrow.

So home is where I'm staying. Holly is in my lap as I type this. but soon I'll be back on the sofa knitting. That's No Tails in the photo. I've started the first sleeve (yeah, I didn't come close to having this done "for Thanksgiving" but it's gonna be a shoe-in for Christmas :-)

And hey - how about those socks!? I started them on my flight to Madison back in July...and finished them yesterday. I'm glad I have a bit of cozy home to share with Sara (they'll be headed her way as soon as I can get to the post office). I thought it might've been nice to have a fire going in the background, but it's 60+ degrees outside right now and I think she'll appreciate that kind of warmth when she wears them!

And how about another successful NaBloPoMo?! Parts of me are in denial about tomorrow being December, but other parts of me are ready for November to be over!

Happy Wednesday!

Well, you're lookin' right cozy there...and those socks and the sweater do help set the mood. Phooey on the weather - best safe than sorry. So enjoyed spending November with you. Bring December on!

Better to err on the side of safety! I hope the storms are not as bad as predicted! I'd love to stay home this evening, but I'm off the the 2nd of 3 dress rehearsals for a concert on Sunday. I sing with the Oratorio Society at the university; we go to choral classes with the students every week and perform in two concerts a year. It is a lot of work, but the concert will be wonderful!

I'm glad you're getting some much-needed rain (we're on our second day of deluges), but it would be much better without tornado watches and warnings. Good choice to stay at home knitting and keeping Holly company.

So glad you just spent the afternoon hunkered down at home! Knitting . . . is the best way to get through some nasty weather.

I was on my way to Acworth right in the middle of all that weather. The radio is telling me to take cover-well hard to do on I-285! Slow and steady and it was fine-glad it was over relatively quick and our area escaped unscathed.

Staying in when the weather is frightful is the right thing to do! The socks look cozy and warm! Just what's needed for a WI winter.
