Let the snow come........

A large package of Moda Dea Sassy Stripes yarn came in the mail today.
That added to the others already awaiting a turn on the needles makes a lovely photo.
Moda Dea evidentially is no longer being made, so a trip to eBay brought some much desired yarn.
The snow can come --- I am set for a long time --- with some lovely yarn to brighten 
any dreary day that may come.  With all the lovely colors, I am most anxious to try out the Moda Dea "Stormy" which is black gray white and all variations between. 
That one goes on the needles tonight.

Another fun knitting project ---
Toe up socks -- these are finished except for the ribbing on the second sock.
Also finished a prayer shawl -- knit one -- and working on other UFO's
Will post photos when I get a couple more of them done.
In the meantime, here is the pair I will finish this afternoon.
Love the cheerful colors -- it is a gray, dreary, day and the bright colors sure help.
Knit with Moda Dea yarn - Polo colorway - #7 needles -- Magic Loop

Fun little dress to knit.
