Six more weeks of winter?

If only! I'm afraid it will be more than that for us! The weather has been freezing, and it is snowing again today. Since I'm not a skier, snowmobiler or other winter sport enthusiast - what do I do to get through the winter - knit and read of course!
I knit up this little bear sweater for one of Tori's build-a-bears and added the heart that I made for the "Lisa's Designs" contest on Ravelry. I love knitting miniatures - much faster than the real thing!
I'm almost finished with the vest I'm making for DD - I will have her model it for a photo when it's finished - I think it may actually fit her after being blocked!
I've joined the Ravelympics, Team Whoduknit, on Ravelry and I'm entering the Stash Compulsory Dance. I haven't quite decided on my project yet. I'm thinking about an afghan using up all those partial skeins of wool in my stash, but not sure I can make it to the finish line on time with such a big project. It might end up being a stash busting scarf instead.

Recent reads - Murder on a Girl's Night Out by Anne George, Black Hills by Nora Roberts, Shall We Tell the President, by Jeffery Archer (the February Whoduknit pick) and I'm currently reading Nighttime is My Time by Mary Higgins Clark.

I keep thinking that when I retire it will have to be in August since I am not a winter sports fan and I am sure that there will be things that I will want to do right away. On the other hand, there is a certain pleasure to opening an eye, look at the snow/sleet/rain and knowing that you don't have to go to work! LOL! Enjoy.

Love the little sweater and heart.
