Snow What?

I have worked for ten hours more or less on Bent Creek's Snowman Stocking. Here's what it looked like before, back in August the last time I showed it to you worked on it. This could go fairly quickly if I put my fingers to it. I am using the called-for fibers except the light purple. It's supposed to be Lavender Potpourri. I can't find mine, so I substituted the recommended DMC 3041. But I had two different dye-lots and then I took a couple of stitches with 3042. Eh, voila, it looks like I stitched it with an overdyed. Sort of. Maybe.

I received another of the slightly Slavic blogging awards; this time from Nic. "Kreativ," who came up with that? Okay--a German, Pole, or Swede, possibly others. That's good because I would hate to think that someone would give me an award that has some really annoying English spelling. It seems you will insist that I choose. And I will continue to desist. If you want to find new blogs to read, check out those -->> over there. They're pretty good reads and lots of kreativitea.

In two days I will have a big announcement. A reversal of previous blog policy. Oooh, what can it be?

I have to admit that your post title freaked me out, at first. I'm glad it ended up making sense.
