|I wanted to shovel the steps from the top, but wasn't sure where to put my feet|

|Our new oak tree|
|The garage planter (really, it's there somewhere).|
|A cedar that will be very happy to have so much snow to protect it|
It's pretty snowy here. The snow's rather pretty too, if you don't have to go out in it. Originally they were telling us we'd get 10 cm of snow, but I'm thinking it's more like 40. I took these photos yesterday, and it's still coming down today (though thankfully in somewhat reduced volume).
Aside from shovelling snow, I've been knitting.
I've also finally finished my husband's socks:
These are a modified set of Seeded Rib Socksby Ann Budd, the modification being to knit them in fingering instead of sport weight, changing the sizing to accommodate. These are knit in Knit Picks Stroll kettle-dyed, I think the colour was Oak. I love the colour, and I think the stitch pattern looks so very spiffy and dignified. I think they look pretty cozy (and my husband says they're very comfortable; which they must be, as he walked away after the photo session and left them on for the rest of the day). They look cozy and warm; quite unlike outside.
