Does Shivering Count as Aerobic Activity?

Pretty Stash Photo From Hello Yarn

It's darn cold here. Darn cold. So cold that I'm happy I have so much wool stashed in my house. Perhaps the insulating factor will help keep my family warm. (And keep the pipes from freezing).

Speaking of stash, I've decided (thanks Knittymuggins) to joing the Stash Knit Down on Ravelry. I'm doing the sock knit down. I've printed off 6 patterns that I would like to knit and paired it up with 6 skeins of sock yarn. My goal is to make one pair of socks a month for the first 6 months of the year. I'll see how it goes, and if I'm having fun with it, then I'll keep going.

I'm not so foolish as to say, "No new sock yarn in the house!" But I will be trying to keep it to a minimum and only knit from stash.

My feet are cold...knit me some socks! Really you would think a hospital would be a toasty warm place to work with all the sickies here...but it's not!

Hooray!! You drank the kool-aid ;)

I'm so sorry it's been so cold there! Here too. Maybe you should fill up the bathtub with all your stashed yarns and take a little nap. I'm sure those wooly goodies would keep you nice and warm!

I hate yarn! It is not as good as iron.
