It's snowing outside and I want to be outside with it

I am at work, though, and just itching to get out in all that lovely whiteness. I hope to gather some work to do from home and skip out of here early. I'd love to beat the sleet.

I tried on my cowl (Wave) and was able to knit it long enough to go over my head. In fact, I wore it to work yesterday and today. Looks chic and keeps me toasty, neck and head.

The Maryland Terrapins socks are creeping up the leg. I have to decide when to add the writing - soon, I think, and chart that out. If I get out of here early today I hope to get photos of that and the finished cowl taken.

The latest vest attempt - casting on instead of increasing - has done the trick to get the number of stitches I need as fast as I need them. I am knitting away, loving the color changes as I go, using Fibonacci sequencing. Soon I hope to have enough knitted that I can take a photo and you will be able to see what I am knitting. LOL.

Fun Fur. I don't really like fun fur, but I brought a scarf made with it to go into a donation box during the holidays and several of the secretaries in the office ooohed and ahhhed over it. I decided to go ahead and make some for them, and so I knit on Fun fur scarves sometimes at night. It is the perfect thing to knit on when I am listening to an audiobook and feeling too tired to even remember to do increases or decreases for a gusset. I can even close my eyes and knit by feel if I go slowly enough. So, 3 are complete and I have only about 4 inches to go on the 4Th. I have yarn for 2 more and I think they will be completed over the next 2 weeks or so, though I haven't set a deadline for myself. I think I will make several ladies in the office happy and that's a good thing.
