Tiger and his feet have been having a few troubles the past few days with the salt and cold on the sidewalks. So today we decided to put his boots on. Here he is this morning as we were leaving for work with his coat and boots on. He does NOT like the boots at all. He tolerates the coat but the boots...not so much. When I finally got them on his feet, he just stood there...once he started to move he did the freaky idiot walk. DH and I had a good laugh at Tiger this morning.
On the knitting front....I have been busy sock knitting. So far this year I have finished 3 pairs of socks.Pair one is for DH. They are a 3 x 2 rib made from Briggs & Little Tuffy yarn. I believe that it is a worsted weight. DH is happy with them. They fit a bit snug but there is some give and they will stretch. They were a fairly quick knit but, for me the yarn is too rough, but for DH they are perfect!
I am now working on a Hot Water Bottle cover, and deciding on which yarn to use for the next pair of socks!
Last week my knitting group got together for our Secret Santa gift exchange. We decided to do it in January rather than December so we could keep the giving going! Besides everyone's life was crazy prior to Christmas. This way we were all at our regular place. We all haven't been together since September. It was a really nice evening. The company was great and all the gifts received were wonderful. There was even some talk about doing the exchange again...like maybe in July!
I personally received some really colourful roving to spin, a calendar that has a knitting pattern on each and every day of the year, some knitted dishcloths and a few other goodies.
I would have taken more pictures but my camera battery died and I only got the 2. Take my word for it..it was a lovely evening!
Well I have to get back to work! Have a great weekend and try to stay warm.
