Socks in all stages

I woke up this morning and looked out the window to see this:

Ok, so that's not exactly true. I knew we were expecting lots of snow so I woke up when my alarm went off, called the weather emergency line, learned that work was closed, went back to sleep for an hour, woke up again and *then* looked out the window.

Now for the knitting:

I finished these socks last night.

Pattern: Ripples - the November pattern from Sockamania
Yarn: Yarn Pirate in Plum Gorgeous
Started: 11/23/07
Finished: 1/13/08

I've also decided that in 2008 I want to end the year without any of my 2007 (and earlier!) WIPs still on the needles. The one possible exception being the "fun blanket" since that's just something I work on when I feel like it, and it's intended to be a really long-term project. So that leaves the following (oldest to newest):

Hush Hush
Cabled Scarf
Mystic Sea Socks
California Socks
Baby Norgi
November Mystery Socks

So on that note:

Out with the old...

Bye Canal du Midi socks. I know I said I would knit you for Rachel, but you have been haunting me for so long now it really isn't funny. What, 18 months or so? I just hate knitting you so much! Besides, I have a feeling you would be too small anyway. Instead I will pick another less crazy-inducing pattern and finally knit her the promised socks.

...and in with the new!

Hello BFF socks! I told Cathy I would knit her some socks with her cursed Koigu a while back, and you seem like a good choice. In fact, yesterday was her birthday so I took the opportunity to start you then!

I cast on the BFF socks at the end of last week, in a similar colour (mine are more with green, rather than green with blue) and really enjoying them. Love the colour of the Ripples.

Hey, we woke up to the same scenery, almost. Love a good snow day.

Gorgeous, both the snow and the socks! Oh, and the something awesome headed your way in the next couple of days. At least I thought it was pretty awesome. You wouldn't believe the magic I had to use...

Man, do I miss powdery soft snow covering everything! It is so serene and pretty.

The socks look great, and yaay for TOOL!
