I have finished the Great Green Socks! All that's left is weaving in the ends. Halleluiah! That just leaves finishing one sock in the pair for my sister, one and a half socks for me and most of another pair for me. And the mittens. I am already chomping at the bit to cast on three more things and am trying to control certain disaster. I will have plenty of time to knit this holiday weekend because we are forecast to get upwards of two feet of snow. Oh, joy. I will be knitting and shoveling. Then the temperatures are plummeting Monday night into double digits below zero. The fun never stops.
For those of you not familiar with thrummed mittens (and, really, why would you be?) here is an example:

If I can, I will post horrifying photos of mountainous snowfall (sorry, Joyce...)
