A "blizzard" on a nice warm day.

My goodness! What is going on with the weather right now? I'm not quite sure where you guys are residing, but in the midwest, it was about 60 degrees today, as was yesterday. It's quite ironic that I decided to share with you this "Blizzard" sock pattern from my winter sock club... but what can you do?

The picture isn't really revealing, but there are eyelets in between the "confused" cables. I called it the "Blizzard" boot sock, because I added ribbing on the bottom of mine, which seemed more...boot-like... for lack of better words.

I started my beloved "Castle Corridors" sock pattern the other day, which I have been dreaming up for quite some time now.

Unfortunately, I've been very busy lately working and getting sick. I have a head cold...or should I say, the ugly nose-cold. However, my teeth have been hurting and my paranoid mother thinks that I might have walking pneumonia...just like a church guy-friend of hers had a weekish ago. So, I think I have an appointment tomorrow. I still think they'll just give me the obvious "you have a cold. Sorry. Blow your nose and drink plenty of fluids. Wash your hands too, for goodness sakes."

Right now, I'm skipping the needles, and reading the newest book from my Guilded Age Mystery series from P.B Ryan. Suspense! I just started the book last night, and I'm sure I'll finish within an hour or two.

Pattern: my own ("Blizzard Boot Socks"), and on my Etsy shop!

I love socks and the warmer weather. It has made my transition from Brazil to New York much easier.

Feel better, I'm sure its just a headcold.

Great sock pattern...it works nicely with the colorway you chose to use.

Teeth hurting, huh? Hopefully it's just a cold...maybe the old sinuses are clogged causing pressure on the tissues and nerves of your teeth. Get better soon!

Gorgeous pattern and yarn. I hope you're feeling better soon! My teeth aches when I get too congested. Ouch.

It's been crazy weather here (Illinois) too! We had severe thunderstorms, tonadoes, etc....
I woke up to a tornado siren this morning! I don't mind the warm temps though :)
CUTE socks BTW!

I'm in the midwest too and I can't get over how warm our weather has been lately! Your socks look great and they will be weather-appropriate once our region stops being so bipolar! :)
