Extended Holiday

Today we got the rare treat of snow in Oregon. I've always wanted have snow in the background of a knitting project. Here is the snowman stocking that never got to be hung this Christmas due to obvious reasons this past month (read December blog posts). It's coming along well, now. I did have to take out a few inches while getting the hang of figuring out how much slack in dragging the alternate yarn along on the inside of the project. I'm hoping it will smooth out after it is blocked. This is the Annie's Woolens kit mentioned earlier.

On the homefront - dh picked up the laminate flooring at Home Depot last night and brought it home only to discover that they ordered the wrong flooring. They gave us the correct trim. The order # was just off by one number. It took 2 wks to get this order in, so we are going to try to extend our stay at the apartment by another 2 wks. It would be pretty difficult to put flooring in with all the activity of a large family around.

What a pretty stocking- and snow is the perfect background for this photo.

Sorry to hear about the flooring mixup. Just FYI, make sure you guys open *every* box and check it ALL before accepting the whole order...my neighbors had HD deliver some flooring and two boxes were full of damaged items. But you couldn't tell from the outside and it was a major pain to get HD to come back and give them more flooring.
