Warm Woolies

As folklore would have it in this neck of the mountains, the black wooly worm is indicative of a harsh snowy winter. This is the second pitch black wooly worm found in our backyard. Deer, bears and squirrels are 'on the move' all of which are 'signs' of a harsh winter to come. Quite frankly after the past few years of mankind and all their technology and wrong predictions, I'll put my snowshoes on folklore.
Mr. Bettis thought the wooly worm was quite fascinating so I had to 'protect' the little wooly guy and send him packing on his way.
 A very dear friend's grandson had a #1 birthday. We missed the party but I whipped up this little sweater for him, Choo-choo charlie. Busy moms do not have the time to fuss with wool so this is made from Hobby Lobby I Love This yarn...soft and durable. Now to get it to the PO.


They're finally finished! My scrap sock yarn gloves. I love color and these definitely fill the bill of color and warmth. They certainly will not be lost in any snowstorms :).
