We had our first snow of the year – about 3 inches, I’d guess. And brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it’s cold! It’s very beautiful, but COLD!

I forgot to mention another FO the other day – I finished another hat for my _Man._

He’d requested another, and he does spend so much time out in the cold elements, so I made the “Macho Man”:http://www.thegarterbelt.com/aa_machoman.html hat for him. It didn’t photograph well, but it’s in a bulky Navy with grey design.
It’s so sweet, he’s alternating wearing the 2 hats that I’ve made him one night and then the other to work.

So, on my needles now?

My Christmas shopping is barely started – school is hopping – work is, too – and life, oh the normal-hectic!
How is yours going?
