I absolutely didn't see the ice that was covered by the snow on our driveway and was shocked to find myself on the ground. Of course, then I realized that is the spot in the driveway that always has a puddle and it would follow that when it got really cold, it would turn to ice. Der. I hate that. I was on my way to the yarn shop for the knit-a-long --- needless to say, that plan got abandoned. I limped back into the house, covered in snow and spent 10 minutes trying to walk around and see if I could still go to the knit-a-long. All the while, Paul is following me around, rolling his eyes at me because he thinks I should just stay home and put ice on it. In then end I realized he was right. Went to the doctor yesterday and it is just a bad sprain. Foot up. Lots of ice (aha! so, ice can be helpful after it trips you up.....). Lots of TLC from Paul!
On the knitting front:
I've been working on a knitting commission project for a customer at the shop. An entrelac scarf made with Noro Silk Garden:

And here is the progress I'm making on the knit-a-long socks:
Skinny yarn + skinny needles = a looooong time
So, to combat this, I'm knitting a little on one, then a little on the other and it's working like a charm. I feel like I'm making good progress and know they will be done almost at the same time.
I mentioned the Umaro blanket in a recent post but didn't have a picture, so I'm putting it here:
In other news, I got this from Amazon recently:
This came in the same box:
On the home improvement front --- refinishing the stairs....
