We had a bit of snow last night so I tried out snowshoes for the first time. Took me a bit to get the hang of them (I'm terribly out of shape) and once I did, Addi didn't help much by stepping on them behind me or trying to bite them. I wish I had gotten a shot of her face when we first started out. WTF? Your walking on sticks? What a waste of sticks! (Lynnette -- don't look, it's more snow.)

Not much knitting going on that I can talk about. It's almost Christmas and this is the first Christmas where I am not feverishly trying to finish something. It's kind of liberating.

So I spent an embarrassingly long time today trying to knit hats on the LK150 for Jean's hat drive. The results are fairly horrific, per usual with me and this knitting machine (whose name is no longer the LK150 but has been changed to a something a little more suitable). It's such a fiddly process and I pretty much just suck at it. I'm going to felt this one to see if it will make a nice bowl.

This one isn't so bad but oh my, is it ever LARGE.
